Wisdom Teeth Removal
Why Take Them Out?
Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars in the back of your mouth. Typically
they come in between the ages of 17 and 25, and your Dentist can spot
them on X-rays. You may need to have them removed for one of these reasons:
They’re impacted. Because they're so far back in your mouth, wisdom teeth may not come
in normally. They can be trapped in your jawbone or gums, which can be painful.
They come in at the wrong angle. This can cause pressure against your other teeth.
Your mouth doesn't have enough room. Your jaw has isn't big enough for an extra set of molars.
You have cavities or gum disease. You may not be able to reach your wisdom teeth when you brush your teeth or floss.
It can be very important for your oral health to have Wisdom Teeth removed
at the right time. Please call West County Dental today to see if how
