Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth, generally in the late teens and early 20s. However, most people do not have room for these teeth, and if left alone, the wisdom teeth can cause many different problems. These include:
- Becoming impacted. This is when the wisdom teeth do not fully break through the gums and jawbone.
- Growing in at an incorrect angle. If the wisdom teeth do not have enough space, they can start growing in sideways or at a skewed angle.
- Overcrowding the other teeth. The wisdom teeth can push healthy teeth out of alignment, disturbing the health of your bite and creating other orthodontic problems.
These problems can lead to damage to neighboring teeth, infection, tooth decay, harm to the jawbone and more. Removing the wisdom teeth before they can cause damage is often the best choice for many people, and we will be happy to help you through the entire process. We will evaluate the health of your smile and wisdom teeth, creating a plan for removing them, if necessary, that will best help preserve your oral health for the future.
