Learn About Wisdom Teeth
Your wisdom teeth, or third molars, usually make an appearance between the ages of 17 and 21. Unlike your other teeth, wisdom teeth are not required for either efficient chewing or to make your smile look complete. So when they put your oral health at risk, removal is necessary. Below are some common problems we see from incoming wisdom teeth:
- They become impacted – Sometimes your third molars will be in the wrong location or at the wrong angle, especially if they only partially emerge. They can then push against your other teeth and cause damage. Wisdom teeth can even get stuck underneath another tooth, which can cause significant pain.
- They crowd other teeth – For many patients, incoming wisdom teeth crowd their existing teeth, causing teeth shifting and bite issues.
- They need removal for orthodontic treatment – Our dentist or board-certified orthodontist may recommend removing wisdom teeth to help us straighten your other teeth with Invisalign or traditional braces.
Whatever the need for wisdom teeth removal, we can do it quickly and comfortably. Call us at (209) 575-2400 today for your consultation. Don’t put the health of your gums and other teeth at risk!
