EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WISDOM TEETH

Wisdom teeth may need to be extracted if they affect other teeth – often referred to as “coming in sideways” or “impacted wisdom teeth”.

Wisdom teeth begin to appear in adults in their late teens and early twenties and sometimes even in their thirties.

Wisdom Teeth Problems

In most people, wisdom teeth grow normally without causing any problems.

However, in some people, the wisdom teeth grow abnormally causing pain and discomfort.

This could happen because of a lack of space in the mouth, resulting in the wisdom tooth pushing into the teeth around it and causing pain.

Misaligned wisdom teeth can not only damage the alignment of the surrounding teeth but also result in damaging the jaw and the associated nerves.

It is more likely that people have 28 teeth before their wisdom teeth begin to erupt. So when the wisdom teeth do erupt, there may not be enough space in the jaw for all 32 teeth.

Due to this lack of space, a wisdom tooth may not erupt fully. Such a case is called an ‘Impacted Wisdom Tooth‘, causing pain and in some cases, infection. Removing the wisdom teeth can prevent impaction and overcrowding in your jaw.

Some of the problems associated with impacted wisdom teeth include bacteria and plaque build-updevelopment of cystsdevelopment of tumoursinfection and jaw & gum disease.

In most cases, your Melbourne CBD dentist will recommend a wisdom tooth extraction, which is the easiest and quickest way to relieve you of the pain.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third molars located in the back of your mouth. They usually are the last to erupt.
At what age do people grow wisdom teeth?
Most people grow their wisdom teeth in their late teens or early twenties, but it is also possible to develop them as a pre-teen or as an older adult.
Why do wisdom teeth need to be removed?
If they are impacted and or cause crowding in your mouth, we recommend removing them to avoid damaging the neighbouring teeth.

If they grow in a correct position, are healthy and function properly, it is not necessary to have them extracted.
