Wisdom teeth usually come in between ages 16 and 24. They aren’t always troublesome, but they often are. We extract wisdom teeth at The Dental Design Center in White Plains NY.
Wisdom teeth are sometimes called “third molars.” That’s because they really are: the molars furthest back in the mouth. For some people they never present a problem. Unfortunately, such cases are in the minority.
Wisdom teeth have a tendency to grow in crooked or sideways. Sometimes they don’t break through the gums, but instead grow into them, or even into the jawbone. They can let in bacteria and cause infection.
These and other complications can be very painful. That’s why we often recommend extraction. When it comes to wisdom teeth extraction, the younger you are the better. By middle age they could have fused with the bone. Extracting them is still possible, but more involved.
If you’re having issues with wisdom teeth or any other teeth, please give us a call at The Dental Design Center in White Plains NY. People from Scarsdale, Westchester County, and New Castle also come to us for cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
