Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to come in. Because of this, sometimes there’s not enough room to accommodate them.
On average, wisdom teeth erupt during the teenage years or early twenties. Not everyone develops all four wisdom teeth; some may have fewer.
If you notice swelling, tenderness, pain, abscess, or infection in your gums around your wisdom teeth, that may be a sign that something’s wrong.
Inform your dentist right away so they can examine the area and recommend appropriate treatments.
Complications involving wisdom teeth vary. Here are some of them:
If your wisdom teeth are causing you problems, it’s best to get them assessed immediately. When symptoms persist and the infection gets worse, your dentist or oral surgeon may recommend removal. The longer you wait, the more issues may arise, causing the extraction to become more difficult.
Sometimes wisdom teeth come in without any issues. In this case, extraction isn't necessary. Wisdom teeth evaluations are part of routine dental checkups.
