What are Wisdom Teeth?
The third and final set of molars erupt in the back corners of the upper and lower normal adult mouth. The problem with wisdom teeth is their close proximity to existing permanent teeth. This situation can cause a number of problems. Typical examples include crowding, improper bites, crooked teeth and other issues. Adult wisdom teeth have caused problems for years.
If you are experiencing problems with your wisdom teeth, chances are they have become impacted. This can be a very painful experience that you’ll want to address as quickly as possible. This can also be very harmful to your oral health. Symptoms you may experience are relatively easy to identify: pain, inflammation, and some kinds of infections.
It is not unusual for many adults to have their wisdom teeth extracted. This procedure will eliminate future problems and save patients a lot of aggravation and pain in the future. Getting rid of your four wisdom teeth has absolutely no longstanding effect on one's ability to properly bite down, speak or eat.
