Seek Professional Advice for Your Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the third molars that emerge on the top and bottom gum line on either side of the back of the mouth between the ages of 17 and 25.  Many people experience complications that require wisdom teeth removal, while others get them removed to reduce the potential risks to their health. It can be difficult to tell if you have impacted wisdom teeth or if they are emerging properly. Your dentist has the tools necessary to help you monitor the emergence of your wisdom teeth and advise you on the steps to take based on their positioning. Talk to your dentist about your wisdom teeth to ensure the lifelong health and appearance of your mouth and teeth.

Wisdom teeth are difficult to reach, making them hard to clean. If the wisdom teeth are only partially erupted or emerge crooked, crevices may be created where bacteria and food debris can hide, raising the risk of infection, tooth decay, and gum disease. You will need to visit your family dentistry office on a routine basis to carefully monitor the positioning of your wisdom teeth and any potential threat to your health.

In some cases, an individual will not experience any pain, but wisdom teeth removal is still necessary to prevent the potential for damage. Wisdom teeth pain can be indicative of an infection or inflammation that can lead to serious damage if left untreated.

Your family dentistry professional can use special equipment to observe and monitor the positioning of your wisdom teeth. You may need wisdom teeth removal if you experience any of these symptoms:

  • Pain around the back of the mouth or along the jaw line.
  • Headaches caused by wisdom teeth pain.
  • Red, swollen, bleeding, or tender gums.
  • Chronic bad breath.
  • An unpleasant taste in the mouth.

You could have impacted wisdom teeth if you have swelling, pain, or other symptoms around or near the back molars. Discuss potential wisdom teeth removal with your dentist to ensure that if they do need to be removed, the problem is caught early.
