Wisdom Teeth


Thinking About Getting Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to come into the mouth. Most people have four wisdom teeth at the back of the mouth — two on the top, two on the bottom. Impacted wisdom teeth can result in pain, damage to other teeth and other dental problems. Since they’re hard to clean, they may be more vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease than other teeth are. When they are partially-erupted, the opening around the teeth allows bacteria to grow and will eventually cause an infection. The result is swelling, stiffness, pain and illness.

“When Should I Get My Wisdom Teeth Removed?”

Early removal is recommended to avoid future problems and to decrease the surgical risk involved with the procedure. By waiting until an older age, the risk associated with wisdom tooth removal and the recovery time from the procedure tends to increase. It is always preferable to remove wisdom teeth when they are not causing an emergent problem.
