Wisdom Teeth Accumulate?
Good afternoon, I want to consult a few months before I had a tooth extraction problematic. An x-ray of my teeth showed that the wisdom teeth growing on the left were piled up, and the top growing out but the position was tilted and surgery had to be taken to remove the beveled tooth. What I want to ask is that my wisdom teeth grow back and it hurts so much, do I have to get surgery again? thank you
Hello Venna, thanks for asking.
I think it needs to be clarified a bit in the jaw where the wisdom teeth have been removed. Also, it should be explained whether the meaning of wisdom teeth growing back is another wisdom tooth that has not been removed.
If there are still wisdom teeth that have not been removed and are currently causing pain, then you should immediately consult your dentist. The doctor will probably take x-rays to see the position of wisdom teeth. Through X-rays will show whether the youngest teeth impacted or not.
If there is an impacted wisdom tooth (abnormal location and direction of growth), then it is very likely that the dentist will recommend that the extraction be re-done.
So a little information from me, hopefully can help. Regards.
