Wisdom Teeth Removal Reviews
The average human mouth has enough room to accommodate 28 teeth, which accounts for all of your adult teeth up to your second set of molars. In the mid- to late teens, however, a majority of people have their third set of molars, more commonly known as wisdom teeth, begin to grow in, and because of the lack of room in their mouth, this growth can cause a host of oral health issues. When wisdom teeth don't have adequate space to erupt into their proper position, they can grow in at an angle and become stuck, or impacted, in the gums. Once this happens, they can cause infection and can even force the misalignment of your healthy teeth.
Avoiding the issues caused by wisdom teeth is as easy as visiting an oral surgeon to have their position examined; the oral surgeon will determine if your wisdom teeth threaten your oral health and will then recommend a treatment plan for removal. Early detection and removal are key for the best possible results.
