Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop and appear in your mouth. They are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties, a time of life that has been called the “Age of Wisdom.”

Why You Should See a Lake County Dentist for Wisdom Teeth Problems

Healthy, properly aligned wisdom teeth can be an asset to your mouth; however, when they grow in poorly positioned or unhealthy they can cause problems and may require removal.

Recognizing Impacted Wisdom Teeth

When wisdom teeth do not fully erupt, an opening is created around the tooth allowing bacteria to enter and this area can become infected, causing pain and swelling. The area may also become a food or plaque trap, causing decay on the wisdom tooth or the tooth in front of it. If a wisdom tooth grows in sideways it may become trapped in between the bone and gum – this can cause infection and intense pain. During an examination, your dentist will assess the health and position of your wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop and appear in your mouth.

Extracting Impacted Wisdom Teeth

To prevent potential infections your dentist may recommend removing your wisdom teeth – a very common dental procedure.
