Wisdom teeth are the last teeth that grow and develop in our mouths, usually appearing, or “erupting,” between the ages of 17 and 25. Problems can arise when the wisdom teeth don’t properly erupt through the gums. An impacted wisdom tooth is one that fails to erupt — a condition that can cause problems with your gums, jaw, and other teeth.
Have you been experiencing pain in the back of your jaw or mouth? This could be a sign that your wisdom teeth aren’t growing in the way they should.
If your wisdom teeth have been bothering you, call San Marcos, TX family dentist clinic The Dental Space today. The Dental Space provides safe and painless wisdom tooth extraction to patients in San Marcos, TX, and nearby communities.
Wisdom Teeth Can Be a Serious Problem
Wisdom tooth problems require immediate attention. Left untreated, these problems often result in :
- Recurrent pain
- Tooth Decay
- Pericoronitis and other infections
- Structural damage to the jaw
- Damage to surrounding teeth and their roots
Because of their location in the back of the mouth, wisdom teeth require special attention to ensure they receive the proper care when brushing.
