Wisdom Teeth Management In most cases, third molars or wisdom teeth fail to erupt properly because there is simply not enough room in the jaw for the teeth. Wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 17 and 24, and may or may not cause us any problems. If the growth of wisdom teeth is normal, then there will be no need for extraction. But, if the wisdom teeth grow sideways and become impacted, they may need to be removed.
Potential problems with Wisdom Teeth Some of the problems associated with impacted wisdom teeth include:
Bacteria and plaque build-up
Cyst development (a fluid- filled sac)
Jaw and Gum Disease
Decay of adjacent teeth
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, please make an appointment as soon as possible:
Intense pain and soreness in the mouth
possibly radiating to the ear and/or throat
Infection in the mouth
Swelling of the gum line in the back of the mouth
