Indications for extraction of wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth often need to be removed for a variety of reasons. Certainly, the main indications for the extraction of them include:

  1. Lack of space in the dental arch: Wisdom teeth often do not have enough space to erupt. As a result,  the tooth becoming stuck in the bone or growing at an unfavorable angle, obviously causing the risk of damage to adjacent structures.
  2. Infections and inflammation: Difficult access to wisdom teeth makes it much more difficult to maintain proper hygiene. Therefore, they are more susceptible to developing inflammation and infection. As a result, it can lead to serious health problems.
  3. Pain and Discomfort: Often, erupting wisdom teeth cause pain, swelling and discomfort in the mouth.
  4. Damage to other teeth: When wisdom teeth grow incorrectly, they can put pressure on adjacent teeth, causing them to move. Their unfavorable effect on the arrangement of teeth in the arch causes crowding. After all, that makes their cleaning difficult and adversely affects the aesthetics of the smile.

Contraindications to extraction of wisdom teeth

While eighth tooth extraction is routine, there ara some contraindications that may influence the decision. These include:

  1. Advanced gum disease or inflammation: If gum inflammation exists, extraction may be contraindicated until the inflammation has resolved.
  2. Pre-existing medical conditions: Existing medical conditions may affect the safety of the extraction. Important contraindications include: uncontrolled caries and blood clotting disorders.
  3. Complicated tooth location: If the wisdom tooth is located in a hard-to-reach location, extraction may require more advanced surgical techniques. However, this is a relative contraindication and requires a more comprehensive approach.

Differences between surgical and non-surgical extraction of wisdom teeth

There are two ways for tooth extraction – surgical or non-surgical.

  1. Non-surgical extraction: This form of extraction involves wisdom teeth that emerge normally and are visible in the mouth. They can be removed using standard dental instruments. In other words, the procedure is relatively simple and does not require incisions in the gum.
  1. Surgical extraction: For wisdom teeth that are impacted, malpositioned, or not fully erupted, a surgical approach is required. In conclusion, the dentist makes an incision in the gum and removes part of the bone to gain full access to the wisdom tooth enabling its extraction. The procedure ends with post-extraction suturing of the wound.


At Warsaw Dental Academy, each case is carefully assessed by our specialist doctors. They decide on the appropriate approach to the extraction of eighth teeth, ensuring maximum comfort and effectiveness of the procedure.

  1. Avoiding chewing on the site where the extraction was performed for the first few days after the procedure and skipping teeth brushing the day after the procedure. In the following days, it is recommended to brush the area around the extraction site with a toothbrush with soft bristles.
  2. Avoiding hot, spicy and hard foods that may irritate extraction wounds.
