Prevent Problems by Removing Wisdom Teeth
Our wisdom teeth, or third molars, usually start to appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Unlike your other teeth, they are not necessary for efficient chewing or for aesthetic purposes. As they grow, they can cause several problems that require their removal. These include:
- Impaction – Wisdom teeth coming in at the wrong location or at an odd angle can push against other teeth, potentially damaging them. They can even grow in under your other teeth and cause a significant amount of pain. Depending on your situation, we may refer you to another dental professional to have impacted wisdom teeth removed.
- Crowding – Emerging wisdom teeth can cause your other teeth to shift. This can lead to bite issues that require orthodontics to fix.
- Partial Appearance – Sometimes wisdom teeth stop growing and never fully push through the gums. It can be difficult to keep these areas clean, allowing bacteria and decay to form.
