Are your wisdom teeth coming in? Do you feel like you might need to get them checked or removed? This is actually a perfectly normal feeling for most people at some point in their lives. As a matter of fact, most dental professionals prefer to remove wisdom teeth in almost everybody as they reach their late teens or early twenties. This is to avoid extra complications that can arise from leaving them in too long.
Wisdom teeth are your very back molars that are usually the last of your teeth to appear. They tend to start showing up in the late teenage years or the early twenties. They also have a tendency to become impacted or fail to emerge completely from the gums. This is because the gums and jawline usually don’t allow the wisdom teeth the amount of room or the angle of entry that they need to fully erupt.
If you have an impacted wisdom tooth, you most likely need to get it removed. This is because they often cause regular tenderness or swelling in the gums. If they get very irritated or infected, they can cause serious pain. If this happens, please don’t delay in getting your wisdom teeth removed. Feel free to contact us anytime at Loop Dental.
