I Have Four Impacted Wisdom Teeth. Should I Have One Removed Even Though It’s Likely To Cause Root Resorption?

Thursday, October 16th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have two questions, the first regarding an implant: Is there any risk of nerve damage even with the use of a CT scan?  And one when it comes to the wisdom teeth: I am 23 years old and I have 4 mesial impacted wisdom teeth. I believe that they are fully surrounded by bone. A dental surgeon told me that one of them is causing minor bone damage around the 2nd molar. Is that the equivalent to root resorption? Is this a valid reason for extraction even though bone would have to be taken to extract the wisdom tooth? How much do wisdom teeth typically move at my age and will they likely/inevitably cause root resorption of the 2nd molar since they are impacted and there is not space for them to erupt? Does the likelihood of these problems, justify extracting them now even though I am experiencing no symptoms, just to avoid the increased extraction risks?

I Have A Partially Impacted Wisdom Tooth Trying To Come Through For 6 – 8 Years. It’s Starting To Taste Bad. What Are My Options Regarding This?

Monday, March 10th, 2014
Q.

Hello Andrew. I have a wisdom tooth on the left side of my mouth that’s partially impacted. It’s been trying to come through for many years (possibly 6 – 8 years) but there’s one quarter of it that still hasn’t pushed through. It is not really causing me any pain however I’ve noticed a horrible smell/taste coming from the tooth. What are my options regarding this? I’ve been researching wisdom tooth extraction and am not too keen on this procedure. I look forward to hearing your advice.

My Wisdom Tooth Is Growing Slanted Into My Molar. Is There Any Risk In Having It Removed?

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi. I went to dental for an X-ray for my painful tooth recently. My Doctor says my wisdom tooth is growing slanted and is moving into the second molar. But the wisdom tooth still looks okay. Just that second molar along is starting to decay. I thought I’d just be able to pluck out the second molar that’s having pain. But in order to save money I am able to use Medisave, I’ve been advised to pluck out the wisdom tooth beside it as well. I really don’t know what should do. I’m 24. Will there be any risk with this type of procedure? Thank you for your reply in advance.

If I Remove My Teeth, Will My Overcrowded Teeth Move And Straighten To Fill The Gaps?

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew, my teeth are overcrowded. I was just wondering if I remove some of my teeth if the other teeth will move to fill the gaps? My wisdom teeth haven’t come through yet but I have been told they will impact. Should I just wait until these come and remove more teeth at once? I have been experiencing TMJ. I’m not sure if this has something to do with it. The oral surgeon thinks stress caused it although he is unsure. Will removing the teeth make this situation worse? I look forward to your advice regarding this matter. Thank you.

My Wisdom Teeth Are Forcing My Teeth Out Of Shape. Should I Have Them Removed?

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014
Q.

Dear Dr Hughes, I’m 19 years old, and I’ve had braces when I was 11 years old up until I was about 13. Now my wisdom teeth are coming through and my teeth are being forced together and slightly starting to form out of line and shape, which is making me rather paranoid, I’d love to get a brace or something that can re-line my teeth again but am unsure about how I go about this? Also do you advise waiting for the wisdom teeth to come through fully or seek to get them removed, as you can imagine I’m in a load of pain and can’t cope much longer!

Kind Regards.

What Should I Do About My Impacted Tooth?

Friday, January 11th, 2013
Q.

Ive a horizontally impacted tooth (48) with dilaceration of the root. I dont want to get it extracted. Im myself studying to be a dentist in Bangalore,India. This has caused mild lower crowding as well as increased midline diastema ( i have diastema since long time, as well as lateral spacing) the lower crowding has caused an increase in the midline diastema. My question is, is there any way by which i dont have to get my tooth impacted and not have orthodontic treatment either? I like the amount of gaps between the teeth that ive presently. I dont want to reduce it nor i want it to increase. I dont have any pain or infection what so ever. All my wisdom teeth are impacted. Ive an opg image but dont know how to attach it to this question. Kindly help me :)

Are there any alternatives to tooth extraction?

Friday, October 19th, 2012
Q.

I have a mesioangular impacted lower wisdom, causing the 2nd molar next door to rot. I am terrified of having any kind of intervention and this terrifies me even more. The other bottom wisdom has a lot of pain, and I suspect a cavity where I cannot clean it. I got an opinion from a private dentist and he said hospital for removal. I would rather have the second molar removed as I hope there is less risk of future problems?there is definitely less pain (had one removed on other side). Are there alternatives to extraction? The X-rays are with the private dentist at the moment, if I were to email them to you, how is this done?

Could my wisdom tooth be impacted?

Friday, March 18th, 2011
Q.

Hi,
3 of my wisdom teeth have come out. They haven’t cause me problems, apart from they are all facing the gum outwards (just slightly), but are fine.
But recently my last wisdom tooth has started coming up.
It has broken the skin. But only on one side, and now there is a gap between the wisdom tooth and the other tooth. Does this mean the wisdom tooth is impacted?

Am I experiencing such intense pain because of impacted wisdom teeth?

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010
Q.
Good morning Dr. Moore, Years ago, I went to see an orthodontist who had told me there wouldn’t be space for my wisdom teeth to grow in and that I would need them removed. This has never happened and they have caused me considerable pain at random intervals since they came some-what in. Recently, I have been experiences a shooting, intense pain stemming from a spot in my skull behind my right ear. This pain is very intense and the right side of my neck bunches every time it happens– which since yesterday morning, has been every minute or so. Could the cause of this pain be my impacted wisdom teeth? I read on this site they can cause cysts or tumours.. Thank you,
,
