Most everyone in the world needs to have their wisdom teeth checked and removed at some point in their lives, usually around their teen years. But for many people, this can also happen into their later adult years. Wisdom teeth are the last to erupt in the mouth and most mouths simply do not have room for them. Often this crowded state triggers a tremendous amount of pain, leads to infection of the jawbone or other teeth, and can cause abscesses. Often times when they erupt, they push your existing teeth, causing additional crowding, ruining your smile and much worse–can lead to gum disease and tooth decay.
MINT recommends removing wisdom teeth as early as possible to avoid the complications that wisdom teeth cause.
This is where you need to select your doctor carefully. Many wisdom teeth doctors are not oral surgeons! And for this procedure, you definitely want one.
