Wisdom teeth are third molars that typically make their appearance between the ages of 17-25. They are normally the last teeth to surface in the mouth. Wisdom teeth are located towards the back of the mouth, with two on the top row of teeth and two on the bottom row.
Most people don’t have enough space for these “extra” teeth, which can cause infections, cysts, tumors, and harm to other teeth. For this reason, it is very common for wisdom teeth to be extracted after they have surfaced in the mouth. Have you had your wisdom teeth taken out? Platinum Dental Care Logan is committed to straight forward, painless process. Call today to prepare for your wisdom teeth!
Does everyone have wisdom teeth?
Although most people need to have their wisdom teeth removed, some do not even have them. Studies suggest that each person has at least one wisdom tooth present, but it is not impossible to have none. Your dentist can tell you if you have wisdom teeth and help you plan needed steps personally for you.
