Wisdom Teeth

A person’s third and final set of molars is called wisdom teeth. They typically arrive in the late teens to early twenties and can often cause problems and require extraction. Often, people have enough room in their mouths for their wisdom teeth to emerge naturally. In others, as the wisdom teeth come through the gums, they cause issues.

If a wisdom tooth comes in at an angle, it is impacted and will need to be removed; impacted teeth can damage other teeth or even cause structural problems to the jaw. Since they can be hard to clean, bacteria often grows and causes infection.

Routine x-rays during your dental exam will reveal if your wisdom teeth are likely to cause issues as explained above. If you are a candidate for extraction, your dentist will discuss your options and give you recommendations for the best course of treatment.
