Wisdom Teeth Removal
Your last molars, the wisdom teeth, can often cause trouble once they finally arrive. Most people receive their wisdom teeth in their late teen or early twenties, filling the final spots on the upper and lower sets of teeth. If these late molars do not emerge correctly or press against the other teeth, they can cause issues with your oral health. In some cases, it is better to seek dental treatment to have these molars removed to protect existing teeth and your health.
While many people get their wisdom teeth without issues, others are not as lucky. Those with smaller jaws may have little room left for these large molars, which can cause a shift in teeth to make room. This can cause misalignment of the teeth, undoing expensive orthodontic treatments. Others may have wisdom teeth that become impacted in the gums, not emerge at all or grow the wrong direction. Even if wisdom teeth come in without a problem, they are difficult to keep clean and often are subject to decay and other issues. Removal can be the best solution to protect your oral health.
