Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, are located at the back of the mouth and are the last of the adult teeth to erupt (come out into the mouth).

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Third molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth, are located at the back of the mouth and are the last of the adult teeth to erupt (come out into the mouth).

When these teeth are not able to come out and line up with the adjacent teeth, remaining retained inside the bone, they are known as impacted wisdom teeth.

Evolutively, human skulls and jaws used to be big enough to allow third molars to erupt. Third molars were very important to our ancestors for dietary reasons, they needed powerful jaws and teeth to chew their food. As humans and our diet evolved, we no longer needed big jaws nor three molars. Unfortunately, the size of our jaw did not change along with the number of teeth, and we ended up with four sets of third molars with less space available to develop and erupt. Consequently, it is highly common to find patients with unerupted wisdom molars, retained into their jaws in awkward positions (titled or horizontal), especially in the lower jaw, causing numerous problems.

Causes:

Wisdom teeth usually erupt between 17 and 25 years. Their size, shape and position vary on each patient, and so does the possibility for their eruption. Therefore, third molars are less likely to remain retained in people with bigger jaws or smaller teeth. In such cases, they erupt and line up with the other teeth in front of them, they are completely functional and allow adequate hygiene.

On the other hand, when the size of the jaws and the teeth differ, third molars will develop in a tilted or horizontal position toward the front tooth or will become trapped (impacted). In other cases, they can partially erupt and a small portion of their crown will remain covered by gum or bone. These last ones are the more dangerous for your oral health, as they tend to retain more plaque, their position makes hygiene difficult and sometimes painful.

Symptoms

Impacted wisdom teeth can continue unnoticed throughout life, particularly if they are retained deep inside the bone. However, many other times, impacted molars may damage the surrounding tissues or the tooth in front of it, especially when wisdom teeth have partially erupted. In such cases, the wisdom molars cause inflammation of the surrounding gum (opercle), which could produce severe pain that radiates to the ear and head. You may experience the following symptoms:

  • Red or swollen gums which are tender or bleed.
  • Jaw pain or difficulty to open your mouth.
  • Bad breath or an unpleasant taste in your mouth.

However, not always problematic impacted wisdom teeth are symptomatic. Hence, the importance of consulting your dentist regularly. With a panoramic X-Ray (OPG), your dentist can find out if your wisdom teeth are developed, what is their position and what are the chances of them to properly emerge. Therefore, you can monitor their growth and keep a close eye for any arising complication associated.

Complications

Asymptomatic impacted wisdom teeth have been associated with a number of conditions and pathological changes. Some examples are:

  • Inflammation of the gums.
  • Resorption of the root of the adjacent tooth.
  • Decay affecting the wisdom teeth or the teeth in front of them. This is due to food trapped in areas where it gets difficult to brush and floss, or the toothbrush does not reach. Bad oral hygiene habits worsen this condition.
  • Development of cysts and tumours.
  • There is no significant scientific evidence linking impacted wisdom teeth and dental crowding nor relapse of dental crowding after orthodontic treatment. Neither there is conclusive evidence proving an association between impacted lower third molars and headaches.

Some research states that only 12% of truly impacted teeth are associated with pathological conditions, additionally, there is no clear evidence of the influence of impacted third molars as a cause for anterior teeth crowding.

Diagnosis and treatment

Usually, the diagnosis is easily made by the dentist based on a full oral examination and a detailed questionnaire about your hygiene habits and general health.

To complete the diagnosis, the dentist will be using a set of X-Rays that will give an image of the status of your wisdom teeth, including their position within the jaw. A panoramic X-Ray will be used to evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth, their closeness with other anatomical structures such as the mandibular nerve or adjacent roots. Although the chances are low, in case some abnormality is found, your dentist may ask for more specialised 3D images.

Once the diagnosis is made, you and your dentist will take the decision to get your wisdom teeth extracted. Otherwise, if they are not causing symptoms, you can decide to just monitor them in time and see if any abnormality appears. However, if you want to be on the safe side and would like to get them extracted even though they are asymptomatic, you can opt for a prophylactic extraction.

Prophylactic Extractions

The removal of impacted third molars with no signs of disease. A prophylactic extraction is performed to prevent the development of pathological changes. Therefore, in most developed countries the procedure is considered as appropriate. However, according to the American National Institute of Health guidelines, the removal of asymptomatic third molars is not indicated, but a close and detailed monitoring must be performed instead.

Thus, there are absolute indications or contraindications for the removal of third molars have been established. Nevertheless, some oral and maxillofacial institutions and general dentists recommend the extraction of retained third molars, based on the lack of evidence that supports the predictability of unerupted pathology-free wisdom teeth will cause a disease.

Conservative Approach

When there is little to no-evidence suggesting your asymptomatic retained wisdom teeth are causing problems, they are less likely to cause trouble in the future. In such cases, especially for patients with underlying systemic problems, the risks of the procedure do not outweigh the benefits. Thus, a more conservative approach consists in monitoring your teeth for decay, gum disease or other complications. If problems arise, your dentist might consider removing them.

Surgical Removal

Impacted wisdom teeth that are not crucial for chewing function, are causing pain, decay and other dental problems must be extracted. In this category, we can almost always find partially erupted wisdom teeth, partially covered by bone or soft tissue where hygiene is extremely difficult and therefore produce inflammation or infectious complications. Thus, Extraction of a wisdom tooth is usually required for.

  • Infection or gum disease (periodontal disease) involving the wisdom teeth.
  • Tooth decay in partially erupted wisdom teeth.
  • Cysts or tumours involving the wisdom teeth.
  • Wisdom teeth that are causing damage to neighbouring teeth.

Extraction is almost always done as an outpatient procedure, so you’ll go home the same day. The process might include the use of pharmacological sedation or Intravenous (IV) sedation.

Conscious sedation differs from general anaesthesia in the level of consciousness you have. Pharmacological sedation relaxes your nervous system while keeping you conscious and responsive and IV sedation depresses your consciousness. There is no reported difference in the outcomes of the procedure by doing it under IV sedation, which prompts a substantially decreased anxiety before and during the procedure.

    Had the horrifying experience of my front tooth just breaking completely off, I went to another dentist who quoted me $6000 for an implant..but he couldn't offer me any temporary replacement... there's no way I was walking around with no tooth for a week, googled implants and maxcare popped up with a deal of $3995. I called them they saw me straight away, I was given options but all came with the promise they could fix a temporary tooth.. they were friendly and really seemed to care..I walked out with my smile and dignity intact and will be back soon to get the implant.. couldn't recommend them more highly..great service.. amazing price

    I only went to Maxcare Dental because I had a Grab One deal and it was across the road from my workplace. Normally I’ll never go into an establishment for Health Care unless it has been recommended to me AND I would never go into a Health Care establishment in Otahuhu either (personal choice).When I walked in, I was real surprised:1. It was clean and tidy (tick)2. Friendly staff (tick tick)3. Staff were professional, qualified and they knew what they were talking about and had been trained at a high level (tick tick tick)It ticked all the boxes for me. I have recommended Maxcare Dental to all my friends and colleagues (to their surprise lol). My wife has booked in to see Maxcare Dental and it’s now become my preferred choice when it comes to dental work!

    The dental Clínic is outstanding with also excellent professional staff. I have been attended in 4 different Clinics before coming to this one and for sure this is the best. For those who fear going to the dentists my last 2 fillings I had here I suggested not to use anesthesia and I didn't feel any pain at all. They are really careful and have wonderful hands. Easy parking and online bookings.

    I went to the max care all frightened but was assured it will be painless. When I went there I was blown away by the relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff . I have changed my dentist to max care because they treated me so well and informed the procedure every step of the way. She was young beautiful and yet so knowledgeable . I completely trust her. The receptionist and the assistant nurse too were so Curtiss and friendly . They really know their stuff and work as a team . The place is clean, location is easy accessible and open 7 days . It’s great for working people , can visit in the weekends and there is plenty of parking . I have been to many dentists previously , but I really recommend Maxcare Dental. I give them 10/10 . They reminded me of my appointments . Max are provided me the service beyond my expectation. And I THANK YOU😃😃😃😃😃

    Dr Tazeen is that rare kind of person that exudes professionalism but also is genuinely caring, and goes out of her way to advise you on what is best for your own personal dental health. In a situation where most of us are nervous and (with suction, etc in our mouths) unable to speak!) Dr Tazeen intuitively knows when to check in on you, and adjust any procedure to make you instantly more comfortable. The practice, in general, offers top quality work without the 'posh people' prices, and they stay away from sales pitches and hard-sells, while offering clear information and solid support. Highly recommended.

I wanted to see a female Dentist, she put my worries at ease, cared about my feelings, she worked without any breaks and always che led to see how I was feeling. Dr Khan worked so fast and had everything done in the same day, she did moulds done all in one day and her assistant was very professional as well. I've never felt so cared for in such a kind and caring way. I would recommend her to everyone.

    My wife and I both had work done at Maxcare Dental in Otahuhu and we were very pleased with the whole experience. The clinic looked very modern and clean. The receptionist was friendly and very helpful. The dentist was very professional and gave us great advise concerning care needed and after care. The cost was competive and reasonable but still a lot for a low income family. We did receive a slight discount which means alot as every cent counts. Overall, we are very satisfied with our experience, this is why we are back a second time. We'll done Maxcare Otahuhu.

    I would like to express my gratitude for your wonderful dentist finding the infection that wasn't presenting on the 19th when I came for a review. I am very relieved now I returned so soon as I have been very unwell since the implant failure months ago and I am looking forward to becoming well again. I found his technique and skills outstanding and I will be referring people to your clinic to see him.I would also like to share that I thanked Lydia the dental assistant today. I have never thanked an assisting person before but she did an amazing job. I normally find suctioning extremely uncomfortable and usually the fluid still runs down the back of my throat causing me to gag. I would say she would be the best dental assistant I have ever experienced with excellent technique. Finally I would like to mention Anna she is always very friendly and helpful.I wanted to share my personal feeling toward your staff I encountered today and to let you be proud of them especially in the current difficult situation all New Zealanders and all businesses are facing.you have an outstanding Team working for you Rating 5/5

From the very first phone call with Anna at reception through to my visits with Dr Hassan Ahmed, they have shown sincere kindness and support throughout. They really do look after their customers and provide excellent work on your teeth! (really happy with mine!!). Will highly recommend them to all my family and friends.

    These people are outstanding. Great service, great people, and skills that I can't believe. Seriously, my flatmate lined people up to have a look at my teeth after treatment ..awesome.

    After consulting multiple orthodontists, I decided to go ahead with Maxcare Dental. They were very reasonably priced, very close to my work and home and also open during weekends and not overly busy. I had my wedding planned for end of the year and all other orthodontists I consulted told me that they cant fix it within a year time but Dr Ramneek Kaur told me that she can do it. She booked me for adjustments every 2-3 weeks and I was off braces within 10 months with amazingly straight teeth. I couldn't be happier with the service I received from her, have exceeded my expectation in everyway. The staff is very friendly as well.

    Had a front tooth extracted today. I'm a very nervous patient, but the dentist kept filling me in with what was happening to reassure me. It's all gone well and am so glad I got my false tooth sorted before it was pulled.I highly recommend Mohammed and all the staff. Thank you for being so caring. I felt very well looked after.

    My dentist Dr Tazeen Khan is fabulous I love her and the way she is so friendly and professional. I highly recommend her and Maxcare Dental especially if you are a first time or haven't been in a long time to the dentist they will look after you. I have since encouraged my partner to utilise her service and he is now also a happy client. I use to dread the dentist but now I look forward to my appointments.
