You can expect wisdom teeth, or third molars, to arrive somewhere between age 16 and 25. Of course, Dr. Matiasevich can see them coming using dental x-rays. It is best to have wisdom teeth removed as early as possible before their roots have a chance to become established.
Why is it even necessary to extract wisdom teeth? Modern human mouths usually do not have sufficient room to accommodate these dental latecomers. Therefore, wisdom teeth can disrupt the alignment of your bite and cause your other teeth to become crooked.
Wisdom teeth are also very subject to infection because they are prone to gather food particles. Additionally, wisdom teeth may destroy the bone underlying other teeth during their eruption in a process known as impaction. As you might imagine, impaction can be quite painful as well.
If you’re concerned about your or your child’s arriving wisdom teeth, schedule an appointment with Mililani Dental and Implants at (808) 625-6223 for efficient and effective treatment.
