Are Wisdom Teeth Easy To Break?


Posted on 11/10/2019 by Mark Bieber
Are Wisdom Teeth Easy To Break?Have you ever wondered what are wisdom teeth? Or even how to prevent a break in them? These questions are not the only ones you may have about your wisdom teeth.

However, we will do our best to answer your questions regarding wisdom teeth and their preventative care.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?


They are the final adult teeth to erupt through the gums, in the back of the mouth. Usually, a person in their late teens or early adulthood will feel the eruption of their wisdom teeth. However, not everyone has a wisdom tooth that ever makes an appearance. The wisdom tooth doesn't always become a problem. Some people never have any wisdom teeth, while a lucky few have wisdom teeth that come in perfectly and do not crowd the surrounding molars.

How To Prevent Breakage of a Wisdom Tooth


Practicing good dental hygiene, such as brushing and flossing, prevents future breaks and chips of a tooth. Mouthguards while engaging in sports are essential in a possible break prevention. Breaks can lead to future dental complications, such as infections and pain.

Why Are Wisdom Teeth Removed?


Wisdom teeth can be impacted, or basically stuck, when they come in and cause a lot of people pain. The extraction of the one troublesome wisdom tooth can alleviate that pain and sometimes, help restore better alignment to the surrounding teeth. When wisdom teeth only erupt partially, this can lead to decay since food and debris can get stuck under the remaining gum tissue. That could lead to a broken tooth as well.

If you suspect a break or an impacted wisdom tooth, schedule an appointment with us to ensure proper treatment and preventative care. Whether it is a break, an impacted tooth, or other dental concern, we are here to help. Our office staff wants to be sure no issues arise from the wisdom teeth and the removal procedure.
