Are your wisdom teeth bothering you or someone close to you? If so, our team can help. Sadly, wisdom teeth removal is something that almost everyone goes through, but can you recognize the symptoms of a problematic wisdom tooth? Similarly, do you know why some wisdom teeth need to be removed?

Luckily, there are a few signs you can watch for. One of the most common indicators of a problematic wisdom tooth is pain. Generally, this discomfort is caused by your wisdom teeth growing beneath your molars. The pain can also be caused by a tooth erupting from your gums. This discomfort should not be ignored because your wisdom teeth can damage your other teeth and even shift the position of your teeth.

Clearly, if your wisdom teeth grow beneath your molars, you should have them removed. Similarly, your wisdom teeth will need to be removed if they grow in sideways or only erupt partially. Still, please remember that not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed. When you visit us for your six month appointment, we’ll be able to give you specific advice about your wisdom teeth.
