Spare Yourself From Years Of Problems
Believe it or not, most people’s jaws are too small for their wisdom teeth, the third set of molars to erupt correctly. These teeth typically come in when people are in their late teens or early 20s. With regular dental checkups, we can monitor the progress of these teeth with digital X-rays. If we see that a problem is likely, we may recommend removing those teeth.
When wisdom teeth aren’t able to grow in correctly, they become impacted. When that happens, the impacted teeth can cause pain. They also can press into your other teeth, which can change how your bite fits together and the appearance of your smile. Wisdom teeth also can be difficult to clean because of how far back they are. That is partly why they can increase your risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
