What are Wisdom Teeth and Why Might They Need to be Removed?

Located in the very back of your mouth, wisdom teeth are generally the last and final teeth to develop. They usually come in between the ages of 14-30, although some people never get their wisdom teeth. For some people, wisdom teeth grow in properly and cause no problems at all. For many others however, problems arise and dental intervention is necessary to avoid further complications. If left untreated, problematic wisdom teeth can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and occlusion problems.

Oftentimes there is not enough room to accommodate the wisdom teeth, which can disrupt their ability to grow in the mouth properly. For some, wisdom teeth emerge only partially through the gums, which can result in cavities, crowding issues with surrounding teeth, gum infections, and/or severe pain. When wisdom teeth are beginning to grow, they may start to grow in an unusual direction. This uneven development may be responsible for many complications, including crowding and damage to adjacent second molars. When there is not enough room for wisdom teeth to erupt in your mouth, this is known as ‘Impacted Wisdom Teeth.’ When wisdom teeth are impacted in the jaw, the opening of the mouth may become a fertile ground for bacteria to grow, leading to infection in the gum tissue, causing severe discomfort, swelling, pain, and illness. It is often recommended that wisdom teeth be removed early on to avoid future problems and avoid costly surgical procedures.

It is always best to be proactive when it comes to your oral health.
