Dr. Gilbert on the technology at Bright Star Dental What Are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the last set of teeth to come into your mouth. They are an extra set of top and bottom molars that come in sometime between the ages of 17 and 24. By this time, your teeth are already set in their proper positions, and there may not be enough room for them to come in properly. Wisdom teeth are not necessary for proper function of your mouth.
Why Would I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?
- Crowded Mouth – If you do not have enough room in your mouth to accommodate another set of molars, we may recommend getting them removed.
- Improper Alignment – Your wisdom teeth need to come in straight. If they don’t, it can cause a number of problems, like bite issues or pain. Removing your wisdom teeth will alleviate these issues.
- Impaction – An impacted tooth is one that can’t come in properly because there’s not enough space. Often, it is pushing against a nearby tooth. Impacted teeth can increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease because they are hard or impossible to clean. For this complex situation, we will refer you to a trusted specialist to make sure you get the best care possible.
