Each person normally develops two necessary pairs of molars in the back of their mouth. Quite often, a third set of molars, otherwise known as wisdom teeth, surface the gums in people between the ages of 17 and 25. These teeth erupt closer to the throat and usually cause problems if they are not removed.
Wisdom teeth can cause your other molars and teeth to move around, causing bite problems, mouth pain, and damaged teeth. Having your wisdom teeth removed is a common procedure that includes making an incision in the gum tissue and removing the wisdom tooth.
Our team at Platinum Dental Care West Jordan is trained and educated to provide our patients with the most seamless oral surgeries possible. Call us now and get your consultation today!
Does everyone have wisdom teeth?
Although it is most common to have at least one wisdom tooth, some people are fortunate not to have any at all. Most people have 2-4 wisdom teeth and need wisdom teeth removal surgery in adolescents or early adulthood since the recovery s easiest and safest within that time frame. If you haven’t had yours removed yet, you will probably need to at some point. It’s important to know if you have wisdom teeth. Ask your dentist if you have wisdom teeth and if you will need to have them removed. You can schedule an appointment specifically for a wisdom teeth consultation today!
