Wisdom Teeth Worries?

Thursday, October 02, 2014

Wisdom teeth are one of those things that people always seem to have questions about. They can be annoying, painful or sometimes unnoticed. Wisdom teeth are the 3rd molars in the mouth that usually erupt between the ages of 17-25. Here are some common things to look for that can let you know when it is time to see the dentist and discuss getting those suckers out!

Tenderness in the gum tissue behind the last teeth
Swelling of the gums and/or cheek
Pain when biting down
Food consistently getting stuck behind your last teeth
Shifting of the front teeth

The thing about wisdom teeth is that you should take care of them on YOUR terms. Ignoring minor symptoms can lead to major problems occurring at an unexpected time, like on vacation or before an important event. You do not want to wait until you have an infection that makes you look like you have a golf ball in your cheek. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or have any questions regarding your wisdom teeth, give us a call and we will be happy to make an appointment for you!
