Wisdom teeth often develop in young adults around ages 17-25. In most cases, wisdom teeth can cause future dental problems such as gum disease, tooth decay, or infection if they are difficult to keep clean or if there is not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow. On the other hand, some wisdom teeth never erupt and stay impacted below the gums. It is common that as wisdom teeth erupt, they often cause pain. If you are experiencing any tooth pain due to wisdom teeth, please call our office. We will schedule an examination to X-ray your wisdom teeth to identify the placement and if any problems are being caused by your wisdom teeth. If necessary, we may recommend wisdom teeth removal to completely remove your wisdom teeth.
