Wisdom Tooth Removal

Experiencing discomfort at the back of your mouth? It could be that your wisdom teeth are starting to come in. If you’re in pain, we’ll take an X-ray to check the development and position of your third molars.

When Do Wisdom Teeth Erupt?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last set of permanent teeth to develop. They start forming in late childhood, usually making an appearance by the late teenage years. However, it’s not uncommon for them to continue developing well into your mid-20s. By age 30, wisdom teeth are usually completely developed.

Providing an Evaluation With X-rays

Our dentists can predict whether or not your wisdom teeth will cause problems for you by taking X-rays. If there’s a lack of space or they’re turned at an angle, your wisdom teeth are at a much higher risk of causing complications which can include:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Pain
  • Damage to adjacent teeth
  • Infection
  • Cysts
  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
