When Should You Get Your Wisdom Teeth Removed.
Most people find themselves getting their third set of molars, or wisdom teeth, when they’re between 17 and 25 years old.
Not everyone gets wisdom teeth, and even for those who do, they may not end up with all four of them. Evolution has given us smaller jaws, which means that when we get wisdom teeth, they often cause several oral problems including crowding or they become impacted, making it necessary for them to be removed.
On each dental visit, your dentist will check your wisdom teeth and may make a recommendation that they be removed. If they are forcing changes in your mouth, such as pain, infection, damage to other teeth, gum disease, cysts or tooth decay, it could be best to have them surgically removed.
Wisdom teeth removal is often recommended to prevent problems or as part of a restorative orthodontic treatment plan.
With careful monitoring at each dental visit, you may be able to keep your wisdom teeth intact. Regular dental visits are critical so your oral health can be monitored over time to help detect even subtle changes before they cause serious problems.
