The Basics of Wisdom Teeth

Posted .

Wisdom teeth causing pain or discomfort can put a damper on anyone’s day. That is why, our team here at Chandler Dental Excellence in Chandler, Arizona, is happy to talk to you about wisdom teeth, so you understand what they are doing to you.

Your smile goes through several stages in your life. In most cases, you begin your life with no teeth above the gum line, then grow baby teeth, which is followed by your permanent teeth. In most people, wisdom teeth are another stage your smile goes through. Wisdom teeth, when they begin to grow above the gum line, can cause some pain and discomfort, which is why it’s important to see your dentist, Dr. Kerry Taylor as soon as you can.

Sometimes, your wisdom teeth can grow in flawlessly, while other times, they may not have room enough to grow, which causes serious problems for your teeth. In several cases, it is usually best to have your wisdom teeth removed in order to keep your teeth in their healthy, ideal alignment. It can also be very tricky to brush or floss your back wisdom teeth, making a great place for cavities to develop and grow. That is why it is vital to talk to your dentist, so you know which option is best for you.
