Wisdom Teeth 101

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that erupt in the very back of the mouth between the ages of 15 to 25. It is believed that wisdom teeth helped our ancestors chew tough meats and other course foods.

However, our modern diet of softer, more tenderized foods and the creation of culinary tools such as forks and knives, have reduced the need for wisdom teeth. Since our need for extra teeth has diminished, our jaws aren’t as large as they once were. Because of this, it’s common for people to not have enough room for their wisdom teeth.

Do I Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Great question. There are a variety of circumstances in which wisdom teeth removal is the best course of action. Here are some of the most common reasons for wisdom teeth removal:

Impaction

Wisdom teeth can get trapped underneath the gums, which can cause a plethora of dental issues.

Crowding

If there isn’t enough room in your jaw, wisdom teeth can crowd your other teeth and cause damage.


Erupting at Angle

Wisdom teeth can erupt at an angle and run the risk of harming the surrounding teeth and gums.

Inflammation & Infection

If wisdom teeth aren’t erupting properly, they can cause inflammation, gum disease, and many other health problems.
