Wisdom teeth need to be surgically removed when they become bothersome to the person or they are crowding the other teeth. It is very painful to have them removed.

Do wisdom tooth extractions affect other teeth?

No. However, not having them removed can. Wisdom teeth are teeth that are not needed. Our mouths were designed to have them but not need them. If they come in and are not straight they are called "impacted". When they become impacted they can cause danger to the roots of other teeth. This is when they need to be removed.

When can a wisdom tooth be removed?

Wisdom teeth usually begin to surface during young adulthood, between ages 18 and 22. Oftentimes, dentists will tell patients with surfacing wisdom teeth that they need to be removed, since wisdom teeth can crowd existing teeth by forcing them to scrunch together.

What is the difference between a root canal and having wisdom teeth removed?

A root canal would almost never be done on a Wisdom Tooth. But it is when they open the top of the tooth and remove all of the nerves in the roots. They leave the roots and fill them with a special material. Then they put a filling in the tooth. The tooth will also need a crown put on it to keep it healthy. Having your Wisdom Teeth removed is when they take out the very last molars in your mouth. They are called Wisdom Teeth. Very few people have room for these teeth to fit properly in their mouth. Each person has one on the top right, top left, bottom right and bottom left; four wisdom teeth. A root canal is done to save a tooth and keep it in mouth. The removal of a tooth consists of extracting it. Which is better? Depends on many factors. Can you use your wisdom tooth if you keep it? Will that wisdom tooth replace another molar that has previously extracted? The best would be to discuss it with your dentist.
