Wisdom Tooth Extraction
The wisdom teeth are vestigial, meaning they don't offer any benefit and can cause problems with chewing or alignment.In most cases, there is no need for extraction. Suppose you have had four permanent adult molars since age 17-21. In that case, it may become necessary due to overlapping space not being used efficiently by both sets of these problematic structures.
Do you have a wisdom tooth that's giving you trouble?
If so, it's time to consider extraction. Wisdom tooth extraction is a common procedure that our dentists in Singapore perform regularly. Below, we'll explain everything you need about wisdom tooth extraction: what it is, who needs it, how it's done, and more!
Why Is It Necessary For You To Have Wisdom Tooth Extraction?
Our ancestors' diets consisted mainly of hard nuts and crunchy leaves, but today we eat more cooked food. As a result, wisdom teeth are seen as vestigial structures that have become unnecessary due to changes in our lifestyle over time - they don't serve any purpose anymore! You're probably thinking: "I've never had my wisdom tooth removed."
"But if it's been causing pain or discomfort, this may be worth considering for yourself!"
Symptoms & Signs You Need Wisdom Tooth Removal Treatment
Wisdom teeth are often a source of pain and discomfort for people, but it's important to know the signs so you can get treatment as soon as possible.Wisdom tooth(s) may not cause problems when they emerge from your mouth normally at an angle or fully developed with no symptoms. Sometimes this isn't true!
When these third molars grow together crookedly due to either being trapped under tissue by its weight against another bone inside us or appearing at angles rather than straight.
Our dentist may immediately recommend you wisdom tooth extraction, if:
Tooth pain is often near the back of your mouth
Cavities are affecting your teeth and gradually erupting wisdom tooth
Food and debris are stuck in your wisdom teeth

You start having gum diseases that you normally hadn’t
