What’s The Story On Wisdom Teeth?

Basically, wisdom teeth are your third set of molars. Usually they first show up when you are a teenager. That said, many patients won’t have to deal with these troublesome teeth until they are in their college years or even later than that.

These teeth used to have a function that has long since ceased to matter for humans. Over the course of our evolutionary journey, our mouths have changed according to our needs.

Unfortunately, wisdom teeth do still try to come in, but many people simply don’t have enough room for them in their mouth any longer. As you can probably guess, multiple problems can result from these teeth pushing their way through.

Are Wisdom Teeth Always Extracted?

There are some cases in which they wisdom teeth are nondisruptive and can be left alone, but generally speaking, if you would like to avoid pain, tooth decay, oral infections, gum disease, and cysts, you will want to let us remove your wisdom teeth.

In the modern era of dentistry, wisdom teeth removal is a common and easy procedure.
