The natural teeth that you have in your mouth, with proper care and maintenance, can last a lifetime. When a tooth cannot be repaired with a filling or a crown because of an accident or extensive decay, an extraction may be your best recourse. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop in your jaws, often there is not enough space for them to erupt into the correct position like the other teeth in your mouth. They can vary in their position. Please see the image below for their different positions. If the tooth in front is decayed it will need to be repaired by the Dentist after the wisdom tooth has been extracted. The decay may get to the extent that the tooth in front has to be removed as well. The same may occur to the bone support around these teeth (periodontal disease). With surgical extractions, you’ll most likely have one or more stitches at the extraction site. If the wisdom tooth is in a position where it has not been causing problems and there is a low risk of a problem developing then an option can be for the wisdom tooth to be left where it is. The surgical extraction of teeth may sound a bit daunting, but with today’s modern procedures and anesthesia in Tooting Medical Centre, you have nothing to worry about.
