Wisdom Tooth Removal in Gonzalez
What Are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars behind the 12-year molars. They typically appear in your late teens or early twenties, if they come in at all. For many people, wisdom teeth are problematic. If they come in properly and don’t cause any problems, they may be able to stay in place. But wisdom teeth often don’t come in at all or come in sideways and become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth push against the 12-year molars, causing damage and possibly orthodontic issues.
Dentists typically recommend having your wisdom teeth removed before they can cause problems. Wisdom tooth removal is a fairly common procedure that most young adults will require.
Signs You Need Your Wisdom Teeth Removed
- Pain. The most common symptom of impacted wisdom teeth is pain in the back of the jaw where the wisdom teeth are. It can also lead to headaches and ear pain.
- Crowding. If the rest of your teeth are crowded in your mouth, having your wisdom teeth removed will create more space.
- Your wisdom teeth have not come in. If your wisdom teeth have not come in by your mid-twenties, they are likely impacted under your gums. This means they can push up against the roots of your 12-year molars and do serious damage.
- Your wisdom teeth came in incorrectly. If your wisdom teeth came in crooked, sideways, or incorrect in any way, they need to be removed.
