Wisdom Teeth, Replacement, and Your Smile

Most wisdom teeth aren’t completely removed, so they should be watched closely because the possibility for developing future problems still exists.

As we age, as most people do, they’re more likely to suffer from health problems–including possible problems with their wisdom tooth. Because wisdom teeth can often cause other problems with the teeth and jaw bone, many of us tend to get them removed. But if you’ve been told that you need to have the wisdom tooth removed or that your wisdom tooth isn’t growing back after your natural teeth grow in, don’t be fooled.

Many people are told by doctors and dentists that wisdom teeth should be removed because of the pain, difficulty chewing food and inability to use your natural teeth properly.

The truth is that if your wisdom tooth grows back, the process will be relatively painless and easy to handle. And, because it’s a natural tooth, it will grow back naturally. In fact, it will also grow back naturally in time, too.

The natural teeth growing in will be more than adequate to take care of the chewing needs that your new teeth will provide.

If you already have healthy, strong teeth, you should have no problem maintaining a good level of oral hygiene and chewing properly.

In many cases, when your wisdom tooth grows in, it will become a very close replacement for the teeth you just removed. It will fit into the same spaces and will look just like your natural teeth–with the added benefit of being able to eat and talk without the discomfort of having lost the original teeth and replacing them with a replacement tooth.

When a wisdom tooth grows in, it also becomes the base of the permanent tooth. That means that when that tooth falls out, the replacement will be very close to the tooth root and will be almost indistinguishable from it.

So, what are some of the best ways to replace your lost and/or damaged natural teeth? If you’re experiencing any symptoms, or concerns with your smile, check with your dentist for possible wisdom tooth replacements.

If you have other teeth or jaw problems, talk to your dentist about getting teeth implants or root canals.

So, even if you have a toothache or feel that you aren’t able to brush as hard as you can or are having trouble cleaning between teeth, that doesn’t mean that you need to avoid brushing your teeth.

And remember to never use a toothbrush designed for those with wisdom teeth. Using a normal toothbrush may not remove them completely, but you will get rid of plaque and debris that may be stuck in between the teeth and gums.

The only thing you can do to remove the wisdom tooth is to see your dentist and have it removed. Then get a dental implant and start over.
