WISDOM TEETH
Did you know?
Wisdom teeth are the third and last molars on each side of the upper and lower jaws. They are also the final teeth to erupt; they usually come in when a person is in their late teens or early twenties. 

Wisdom teeth that only partially emerge or come in crooked can lead to painful crowding and disease. Since teeth removed before age 20 have less developed roots and fewer complications, the American Dental Association recommends that people between 16 and 19 have their wisdom teeth evaluated to see if they need to be removed. 

Not all wisdom teeth need to be removed, but if there's a chance your wisdom teeth will cause problems in the future, it's easier and better to have them taken out before complications occur. To have your wisdom teeth evaluated, call us today to schedule a consultation.
Key Take-Aways
  • Not all problems related to wisdom teeth are painful or visible.
  • As wisdom teeth grow, their roots become longer, the teeth become more difficult to remove, and complications become more likely.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth are more likely to cause problems as patients age.
  • If left in the mouth, wisdom teeth may damage neighboring teeth and nerves, or become infected, and possibly invite systemic disease that can travel from your mouth to other organs in your body.
