Wisdom teeth, or the third molars, are the last to erupt, mainly for patients aged 17-25. Wisdom teeth aren’t always painful or disruptive to other teeth. But removal is the best option when they cause overcrowding, pain, and other health complications.
Not everyone has to deal with wisdom teeth and their problems. But if your third molars are giving you problems contact Manchester Dental for effective treatment. Dr. Abel Aguilar and the team offer gentle yet effective tooth extractions to restore oral health.
If your wisdom teeth are healthy, fully grown, properly aligned, and easy to clean, they don’t need removal. If your wisdom teeth don’t cause problems now and in the future, you can live a healthy life with them.
Wisdom teeth erupt late when other teeth have already grown. Since most jaws can only accommodate three molars on each side, an extra set of teeth won’t have enough space to erupt normally. Erupting wisdom teeth grow at various angles in the mouth, sometimes horizontally. In some people, wisdom teeth remain trapped (impacted) in the jawbone and can cause pain. Sometimes, your wisdom teeth can break through the gums and still cause problems, including overcrowding.
We advise wisdom teeth extraction if you experience the following:
If in doubt, always consult an experienced dentist like Dr. Aguilar. He will examine the state and location of your wisdom teeth to determine the best course of action.
