What Is a Wisdom Tooth?

Your wisdom teeth are the molars at your upper and lower third gums, towards the back of your mouth. We call them wisdom teeth because they emerge during adulthood. They are the last teeth to come in during the teeth growth process. Wisdom tooth eruption usually occurs during the late teens and early adulthood.

What Are Problems Associated With Wisdom Teeth?

The reason that wisdom teeth cause issues is that we no longer need them. Wisdom teeth occurred millions of years ago in our early ancestors, who needed them to consume coarse diets comprising raw meats, roots, and leaves. As our ancestors evolved, so did their diets, and wisdom teeth became obsolete. However, modern humans still grow wisdom teeth and experience pain and discomfort yearly because our mouths cannot sustain them anymore. Wisdom teeth need large jaws to accommodate them, and our mouths aren’t as big as our early ancestors’ mouths. Many wisdom teeth erupt partially, causing gum breakage that is highly susceptible to buildup and eventual decay. Some of the most common complications caused by wisdom teeth include:

  • Crooked or misaligned teeth.
  • Infected gums.
  • Cysts.

Signs of an Impacted Wisdom Tooth

The most significant sign that your wisdom tooth has been impacted is pain and discomfort in the upper and lower thirds. Please schedule an appointment if you experience the following symptoms where wisdom teeth typically grow:

  • Pressure on the upper or lower third part of your mouth.
  • Stiffness in the jaw where wisdom teeth occur.
  • Persistent and severe headaches.
  • Overcrowded or crooked teeth due to the wisdom teeth’s growth path.
  • Sharp, agonizing in the back of the jaw or gums.

Wisdom Tooth Removal and Care

If a wisdom tooth causes pain and suffering, we recommend scheduling a removal. Getting rid of the tooth is the best way to alleviate pain and begin recovery. Besides, wisdom teeth are outdated and no longer serve a purpose for humans, so it’s never a bad thing to eliminate them before they cause significant problems. Our team is thoroughly trained to remove wisdom teeth before and after they’ve erupted, and we maintain exceptional care from beginning to end and ensure patient comfort. Our team can fulfill all wisdom tooth removals ranging from simple to complex.
