Did you know
…wisdom teeth are the last set of molars. They usually come in when you are a teenager, though many start to come in when you are in your twenties.

Common Problems

Wisdom teeth can be very useful, but more often than not, they are misaligned. Wisdom teeth can come in facing many different directions. They sometimes come in horizontal, or they can grow into the second molars. These misaligned wisdom teeth can damage your other teeth if they grow into them, and they can cause damage to your nerves and jawbone.

Another common problem is when wisdom teeth become impacted. Impacted teeth have trouble coming through the gums. Sometimes, wisdom teeth only partially come through, which allows bacteria to grow around the tooth and gums. This can cause a lot of problems, which is why it is necessary to have impacted wisdom teeth removed.

Many dentists recommend the removal of wisdom teeth. Most prefer to take them out before you have any problems, as the surgery and recovery can be smoother. Surgery and recovery are also always easier the younger you are.
