Wisdom Teeth

About Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are your big back teeth, also known as molars, that are the last of your teeth to completely develop and will often come through in your late teens to early twenties. Because of this, wisdom teeth can erupt through the gum in ways that can cause multiple issues for your oral health.

Dependant on the way they develop, specifically if they come through on an angle, they can cause overcrowding, discomfort, chewing problems, ulcers and severe pain. If these symptoms occur, wisdom teeth extraction is the most effective option to keep you and the rest of your mouth healthy.

Why would you need wisdom teeth removed?

Most people have them removed for one of these reasons:

  • They are impacted. Because they’re so far back in your mouth, wisdom teeth may not come in normally. They can be trapped in your jawbone or gums, which can be painful.
  • They come in at the wrong angle. They may press against your other teeth.
  • Your mouth isn’t big enough. Your jaw has no room for an extra set of molars.
  • You have cavities or gum disease. You may not be able to reach your wisdom teeth with your toothbrush or dental floss.
  • Prior to orthodontic treatment to avoid relapse and crowding
