FACT: Wisdom teeth got their nickname from the age when they typically grow in.

Wisdom teeth are actually called third molars. So why do people call them wisdom teeth? The third molars do not grow in until the dental arch becomes larger, which generally occurs around the age of 17-25, a time also referred to as the “age of wisdom.”

 

Do I Have To Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

You may have wondered why we have to have wisdom teeth removed in the first place. The main reason has to do with a lack of space for these teeth. By the time wisdom teeth grow in, most adults already have a full complement of teeth and there isn’t much room left in the dental arch to allow for 4 more large teeth to grow into a healthy position and alignment. The wisdom teeth begin to erupt and are blocked by the back molars, or the jaw, or both. When the erupting wisdom teeth encounter these blocks or barriers, the wisdom teeth get trapped in an awkward position, sometimes referred to as impacted teeth.

 

Our Philosophy On Tooth Removal

DentArtistry has a dream team of experienced, talented, knowledgeable dentists who know how to evaluate wisdom teeth and whether or not they should be removed. Even if the wisdom tooth isn’t causing pain it should be evaluated, as by the time pain is present there may already exist severe and irreversible damage. In the case of wisdom teeth, the infection can spread to adjacent teeth and gum tissue. Waiting to extract your wisdom teeth can cause cavities in other teeth along with the periodontal disease. DentArtistry recommends removal of wisdom teeth before they cause damage to the rest of your mouth.
