What exactly are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the last of the teeth to appear – they generally appear (erupt) at the very back of your bottom and top jaws between about 17 to 22 years of age. That’s why they’re called ‘wisdom’ teeth – we are meant to be wiser at this age than when we are children!
Some people will never have their wisdom teeth erupt, some people will experience no problems with their wisdom teeth when they do erupt, while some people will experience issues with their wisdom teeth when they appear.
Regular check-up appointments with your dentist will highlight any problems with wisdom teeth early. Attending these appointments means your dentist will be able to act on them quickly. These regular check-ups will help to eliminate any issues which can occur with wisdom teeth.
Why you might need your wisdom teeth removed?
Our skilled and caring Mornington Peninsula dentists recommend patients undergo wisdom teeth extraction for any of the following reasons:
- Ongoing gum infections (gingivitis) at the site of the wisdom teeth
- If the wisdom teeth start to decay because their deep location doesn’t allow access for proper cleaning
- Pain at the site of the wisdom teeth
- Evidence of impaction (where the wisdom tooth grows at an angle) which can increase risk of damage to adjacent teeth.
