What are Wisdom Teeth?
Located in the very back of the mouth, your wisdom teeth are the last and final set of molars to appear, usually emerging during the mid to late teenage years, although for some it can be well into the late twenties. Some people never get a set of wisdom teeth. While there is a small percentage of people who do not have problems with their wisdom teeth, for most people, wisdom teeth often create various dental issues.
What are Problems that May Arise with Wisdom Teeth?
Some wisdom teeth may only come in part of the way, making them difficult to clean and allowing food and bacteria to build up under the gums. This can cause decay in adjacent tooth and bone structures. In these cases, it is better to proactively remove the teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth can push against the roots of other healthy teeth, which can be very painful
Impacted wisdom teeth occur when there is not enough room for wisdom teeth to erupt in the mouth. When wisdom teeth become impacted in the jaw, it can provide a very fertile ground for bacteria to grow at the opening of the mouth. This could lead to gum infection which could cause considerable discomfort, pain, swelling, and illness. Oftentimes your dentist can foresee problems arising later on, so will recommend the removal of your wisdom teeth to avoid expensive surgical procedures later on.
