Here at Beachton Denture Clinic and Dental Center, we are proud to help patients with their wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars. They usually come in when you are a teenager, though many start to come through when you are in your twenties. Wisdom teeth can be very useful, but more often than not, they are misaligned.
Misaligned wisdom teeth can come in facing many different directions. They sometimes come in horizontal. They can grow into the second molars. They can damage your other teeth if they grow into them though they also can cause damage to your nerves and jawbone.
Another common problem with wisdom teeth is that they can become impacted. These have trouble coming through the gums. Sometimes wisdom teeth come through partially, allowing bacteria around the tooth and gums. This can cause a lot of problems.
Many dentists recommend removal of wisdom teeth. Most prefer to take them out before you have any problems. It is an easier surgery and recovery if you get your wisdom teeth removed before you start having issues. Surgery and recovery is always easier the younger that you are.
Don’t hesitate to contact us today at (800) 521-7275 if you have any questions about your wisdom teeth or you would like to be seen.
