There is a certain level of irony when it comes to your teeth that are named “Wisdom Teeth.” The irony lies in the fact that it seems like although they have the word ‘wisdom’ in their name, they cause the most confusion when it comes to teeth. There are a lot of questions that concern wisdom teeth that we’d like to address so you can make wise decisions when it comes to your wisdom teeth in your mouth.
Wisdom teeth are your last teeth that will develop and appear in your mouth. They are located behind your upper and lower 12-year molars between the ages of 17 and 25.
If you have impacted wisdom teeth they can cause harm to neighboring teeth. They can also become infected and cause gum disease. Impacted teeth can be painful, but they do not always cause discomfort. Even if you don’t have pain, it’s important to know that there is potential that your tooth could be holding bacteria that can cause gum disease.
You will want to decide when you should have your wisdom teeth removed. It’s important to keep in mind that you are unique and your wisdom teeth treatment will be unique to you as well. A careful examination of your mouth by a professional such as Dr. Yu at Avalon Dental Group will help determine the right timing and method for removing your wisdom teeth.
