Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are located in the very back of your mouth and usually come in when you’re older (around age 17 to 21). You have two on top and two on the bottom. They are often taken out because they may cause problems for surrounding teeth.

Why are wisdom teeth often removed?

There are several reasons why but one of them is the lack of adequate space in our jaw to support our wisdom teeth. This may cause issues of concern such as:

  • Infection or cavities
  • Damage to nearby teeth
  • Bone loss around roots

Depending on your personalized treatment plan, our dentists may also recommend removing them as a precautionary step to prevent problems in the future, such as:

  • If the tooth is on its side under your gum, it can destroy your nearby teeth and your roots
  • If there is not enough room to brush and floss around the tooth, bacteria and plaque can build up around it
