Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that emerge, usually during your late teens to early twenties. For some people, the wisdom teeth come in with no problem and have enough room to grow naturally. For others, they may be impacted, which means they come through the gum line at an angle. This can cause pain, cause the tooth to grow sideways, or only partially poke through.

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause structural damage to the jaw and other teeth. They can also provide a place for bacteria to thrive since they are hard to reach and clean. These potential problems make it necessary to remove impacted wisdom teeth so that bigger issues do not develop. Routine x-rays during your yearly dental exam will tell you if you need to have your wisdom teeth removed.
