Wisdom teeth can cause problems when there is not enough room in the mouth for them to come in properly. The best way to know when to get wisdom teeth removed is to see a dentist regularly, especially during the young adult years when wisdom teeth typically come in.
A family-friendly dental professional can track the progress of your teen’s wisdom teeth and recommend removal if necessary.
Wisdom teeth are the last molars to grow and usually begin to come in between the ages of 17 and 25. Many people do not have enough room in their mouths for wisdom teeth. As a result, it is best to have wisdom teeth pulled before they cause serious crowding or alignment issues.
Many times, only a dentist will be able to know if the wisdom teeth need to be removed or not.
Wisdom teeth are easier to remove when their roots are less than two-thirds formed, usually in the teenage years. Wisdom teeth may not cause any noticeable problems until complications arise. You can prevent these complications by paying attention to these signs that wisdom teeth need to be pulled:
If your child experiences any of these symptoms, he or she should visit a dentist immediately.
