If your wisdom teeth, or third molars, came in problem-free, you are very lucky! Most people have at least one wisdom tooth that’s impacted, or not able to fully grow in. Problems with your wisdom teeth can cause:
• Damage to neighboring teeth
• Disturb the position of other molars
• Decay and infection
• Gum disease
Because wisdom teeth are in the very back of the mouth they often do not have enough room to grow in properly. We will monitor your wisdom teeth both before and after they erupt by taking X-rays during regular checkups.
