Wisdom Teeth Removal: Reduce the Risk of Gum Disease

Posted on 9/19/2022 by Widner Elite Oral Surgery and Dental Implants
Wisdom Teeth Removal: Reduce the Risk of Gum DiseaseThe decision to remove wisdom teeth can be challenging and tricky for an individual. However, the patient needs to be aware of instances where the teeth become problematic. The development of many gum diseases is mainly related to the wisdom teeth' health.

Most impacted or erupted wisdom teeth can cause the development of periodontal diseases. More so, the overcrowding of the wisdom teeth is a common factor in the eruption of the wisdom teeth, which is a massive risk to the development of gum disease. However, it's not easy for the individual to notice the occurrence of the disease since it progresses with no pain.

It's difficult for the patient to access the broken molars in the mouth through brushing and flossing and using mouth rinsing commodities. Additionally, without adequate care, infections can develop around the erupted molars and spread to other teeth, creating a risk to the wisdom teeth.

Since the individual may not experience immediate pain, the infection spreads to the gum causing significant damage. In addition, these infections affect the gum tissues and surrounding bones, and gum disease can harm the patient's overall health.

Gum diseases resulting from damaged wisdom teeth contribute to heart diseases and strokes and managing diabetic situations, and pregnancies become challenging. Moreover, the infections may increase the risk of bone loss, tooth loss, and tooth decay that produces bad breaths and abnormal mouth tastes.

The gum disease causes inflammations and infections that result in swellings and painful occurrences around the face and the neck. The individual may also experience pain while biting, chewing, or speaking.

In general, to prevent the prevalence and risks of gum diseases, the patient must seek oral dental care to deal with damaged or erupted wisdom teeth. Moreover, oral surgery to extract wisdom teeth is a suitable solution.
