“With time comes wisdom” is typically a phrase you hear and feel heartened by, knowing that with life experience comes knowledge. Sadly though, another thing that typically comes with age is wisdom teeth. These are the last set of molars that can erupt at the ends of your dental ridges. Typically, people don’t have enough space for these teeth to grow and erupt properly, which can lead to pain and dental issues. Don’t let wisdom teeth harm your smile. Visit your dentist as soon as possible.
If you don’t have the proper space for a wisdom tooth to erupt, either because of the structure of your jaw bone or a nearby molar, it can become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth will grow and develop at an angle and push against the nearby molar. This can cause extreme pain as well as damage and shift the rest of your teeth. Because of these issues, your dentist will recommend extraction as soon as possible.
Removing impacted wisdom teeth has many benefits besides alleviating the pain associated with it. Other oral health benefits include:
