What Options You Have for a Broken Wisdom Tooth

Posted on 1/10/2019 by Clackamas Oral Surgery Office
What Options You Have for a Broken Wisdom ToothWhen people talk about their wisdom teeth, they hope that they come in without any problems. The thing that most people worry about is that the wisdom tooth will struggle to emerge and will leave the person with an impacted wisdom tooth and a lot of pain.

Unfortunately, that is only one problem that people face when it comes to wisdom teeth. A broken wisdom tooth is something else that people can struggle with. There are options that people have for a broken wisdom tooth that they are not always aware of.

Making a Choice
There are two basic options when you have a broken wisdom tooth. You can fix it, or you can remove it. While these seem like a fairly simple choice, it is not always that easy. There are a few things to consider to make the right choice.

The first thing to find out is if the wisdom tooth is completely grown or does it still have to grow some more. If it has not fully merged, you have to look at how it will come in. If it comes in crooked or becomes impacted, it is better to pull the broken wisdom tooth. If the tooth is healthy, fits and helps with the bite, repairing the tooth through a filling is a possible choice.

The second thing to think about is the overall health of the wisdom teeth and the other wisdom teeth. A diseased tooth or problems with other teeth may make it a better choice to pull it and to have the other teeth removed at the same time.

It is also good to look at how bad the broken tooth is. Repairing the tooth may not always be an option.

Looking at the options for a broken wisdom is something best done with the help of our dental professionals. Contact our offices to schedule an appointment.
