Have you ever wondered why we have wisdom teeth? Or what an impacted wisdom tooth is? Or whether or not you need to have your wisdom teeth extracted? Then you’ve come to the right place. In this post, we answer these questions and more. Read on to discover everything you need to know about wisdom teeth.
Wisdom tooth removal is one of the most commonly performed dentistry procedures. Your wisdom teeth are four large molars that emerge at the very back corners of your mouth, and they will normally come through when you are between 18 and 25 (though they can appear earlier or later). Wisdom tooth removal may be recommended if the teeth they fail to come through in the proper way, or if they begin to cause problems. It is important to note that wisdom tooth removal may be necessary even if a tooth is not causing any pain, so the potential need for wisdom tooth removal is one of many reasons why you should regularly see your dentist for a check-up.
Wisdom teeth removal is a common dental procedure at our 123Dentist Community Dentist Network practices, but most patients are not even aware of why wisdom teeth removal is necessary. The extraction experts found on the 123Dentist Community Dentist Network have written this handy guide on wisdom teeth to answer any questions you may have.
