Not all wisdom teeth need to be extracted. If these teeth present at the posterior end of your mouth, can develop, without causing any serious damage to nearby tissues and teeth, there is no need of extraction. However, this is a rarer site and most people do require tooth removal.
Wisdom tooth develops at the age of 17 to 25 years of age. During this period, most people suffer from a condition known as impacted wisdom tooth that calls for its extraction.
In this condition, the permanent molars do not have enough space to develop normally within the mouth and therefore get disfigured. This means that they start growing at an angle to the next tooth, or may move towards the back of the mouth; hurting internal cheek muscles and tongue.
Apart from the pain, wisdom tooth may cause decay of neighboring teeth as well. People who delay the removal of these teeth may suffer from severe teeth cysts and other orthodontic diseases. Therefore early removal of wisdom tooth is recommended.
Cost of wisdom tooth extraction in India can be approximated to range around INR 600 to INR 10,500; depending upon the position of tooth and severity of disfigurement.
The recovery period for wisdom tooth extraction comprises of three to four days. Bleeding of the surgical area needs to stop within 24 hours post operation. If the bleeding continues beyond this time period, you will need to visit your dentist immediately. To ensure quick recovery, avoid using straws or smoking for a couple of weeks.
