Why do wisdom teeth need to be pulled out?

Wisdom teeth do not always require removal. Many people have wisdom teeth that have erupted normally and have not caused any problems. In some cases, however, wisdom teeth may be impacted. This means that there is not enough space in the jaw for the teeth to come in normally or to come in at all. Impacted wisdom teeth can become infected or interfere with other teeth. To prevent such problems impacted wisdom teeth are often removed.

They should only need to be pulled if they are causing a problem. If there is no problem then they are perfectly good teeth to keep.


Normally, the wisdom teeth--if present--will be pulled. One hopes to retain the molars for life.



If you have a lot of room in your mouth, there is no need to. if before you get them your mouth is kind of crowded, they will probaly get pulled


Yes you could. You shouldn't though. After you have had your wisdon teeth pulled you need rest.it is possible but you wouldn't benadviced to.


yes you can. because it does not have any effect on your wisdom teeth.


No, some can be pulled normally like all the other teeth. Not everyone has to have their wisdom teeth removed. They only have to be pulled or surgically cut out if there isn't room for them to grow in, or if there is some other problem with them. But most people keep their wisdom teeth with no problems. I still have all my wisdom teeth, but I had several other molars pulled before the wisdom teeth appeared due to decay and abscesses. That made plenty of room for them.


Wisdom teeth do not need to be pulled when: 1) there is room in your mouth for them; 2) they are not stuck under the skin (impacted); 3) they are healthy. But most people do not have enough room in their mouths so the teeth grow behind or crooked and/or they get impacted and cannot grow out.


Your wisdom teeth do not necessarily have to be pulled out. Usually, the situation is that the gums are not large enough to accommodate all of your teeth, including the wisdom ones, hence they have to be removed to prevent crowding, which can be very painful in some cases. There are a few people whose mouths are large enough to accommodate wisdom teeth, so they don't have to be pulled out.


There is no exact age. Just when they start to grow in. They only should be pulled if they need to. If your mouth has room for them, you don't have to get them pulled. But if you do need to get them pulled (as they will mess up your teeth alignment made by braces or mouth is too small), get them pulled when they start to grow in. SEE A DOCTOR about this.


An adult that had they're wisdom teeth pulled or not come through then you have 32 teeth. But if you still have your wisdom teeth you have 36.


Way back when, wisdom teeth were used for chewing harder materials that today we cannot digest (aka bark). An appendix was used for digesting bark. Wisdom teeth were very helpful when we were cavemen, but not now. We have evolved to not need wisdom teeth anymore, therefore they are pulled out. Many people don't even have wisdom teeth. I had three.


how long before getting one's wisdom teeth pulled should one drink?


Wisdom teeth really should be pulled as soon as they come in.The human mouth does not have the capacity [room] for them.Usually your dentist will explain this to you when you visit.



they are slimy because you are a complete idiot


I don't know if it's OK. I have braces myself and my wisdom teeth are coming in right now. Unfortunatly, I have to get them pulled, if anything that's what would happen. You should wait until the wisdom teeth come in, and then get them pulled, because the metal bands may not fit around the wisdom teeth, and most people have more comfort when their wisdom teeth are pulled. I have braces and my wisdom teeth came through and my otho hasn't done anything to them.


the teeth you cant lose are your wisdom teeth you have to get them pulled out by dentist surgeons


Most wisdom teeth are pulled out with local anesthesia. Rare cases of very afraid people has been put asleep.


they had their wisdom teeth pulled.


For me, they put my braces on, not putting brackets on the ones being pulled, they few months later they pulled out the 4 wisdom teeth.


Yes you can have your wisdom teeth pulled if you are anemic. Depends on the severety of your anemia and/org what type of anemia you have but unless you have the problem of unstopable bleeding if you get a cut then there should be no problem.



yes you do...if you dont it will only cause pain


No. Once they are pulled, they are gone for good.
