Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars. Most people start to get their wisdom teeth when they are teenagers, though some teeth don’t come in until you are in your early twenties. Wisdom teeth have a purpose. They are another set of molars, but more often than not cause more problems than they are worth. Wisdom teeth can come in misaligned, facing any direction. They can even try to come in horizontally, growing into your other teeth.
There are also times when your wisdom teeth can become impacted and are not able to come through the gums. They can also come in partially, allowing food to catch in the area and cause plaque to build up. This can lead to bacteria and infection, which will only get worse.
Since there are more bad than good in keeping your wisdom teeth, we recommend having them removed before discomfort kicks in. Surgery and recovery are also easier when you are younger. At Aloha Dental, we are committed to ensuring that our patients are well-informed of the procedure they are getting and equipped with the necessary know-how to recover well. In addition to a follow up visit to our clinic, our friendly staff will also check-in with you regularly to ensure that everything is going well.
