Not All Wisdom Teeth Cause Dental Problems

Posted on 3/1/2024 by Weo Admin

They grow on both the lower and upper jaw. There are cases where wisdom teeth lead to dental problems. This is especially true when they grow sideways and in a crooked manner. They might push on other teeth as they emerge, leading to overcrowding and misalignment. It is important to note that there are wisdom teeth that do not necessarily lead to such dental problems. This guide looks at cases when wisdom teeth do not necessarily cause dental problems.

Healthy Wisdom Teeth

When you have healthy wisdom teeth, they will rarely lead to dental problems. Like any other teeth, wisdom teeth can play a role in the well-being of your oral health. Keeping healthy wisdom teeth is a good step toward improved oral health. Here are some ways to tell when your wisdom teeth are in excellent condition and not causing dental problems.

Healthy Gums

When the gums around the wisdom teeth are pink and firm, they are in good condition. You can also know that your wisdom teeth are okay when the gums are firmly attached to them without swelling or pockets. It is essential to let us know when your gums become jelly-like and loose; it could mean the wisdom teeth are becoming problematic. Standard dental care routines like regular flossing will help keep your teeth healthy. It is also essential to eat healthy foods to avoid putting your teeth at risk. You should also clean your mouth after consuming such foods.

Non-Stained Wisdom Teeth

If you have perfectly white wisdom teeth, there are minimal chances of them causing dental problems. Note that there is always a reason for stained teeth. It could be due to tooth decay or extensive food staining. Extreme cases of teeth staining could mean that you have an underlying condition, which could prompt the extraction of your wisdom teeth. Our professionals will calmly assess the situation and decide the best way forward. Visit our offices for more information on wisdom teeth and to care for them properly.
