Information on Wisdom Teeth

At Aesthetic Dental Center of Bergen County, we want our patients to be fully informed about their teeth and what is involved with all of our procedures so that you can make informed decisions about your oral health. To this end, we have put together some information for you regarding wisdom teeth.

Also called third molars, typically emerge between ages 17 and 21. Unlike our ancestors who relied on them for chewing tough foods, modern diets and cooking practices have made them less necessary. Identifying wisdom teeth is simple by examining the mouth, but a radiograph is needed for impacted cases. Panoramic X-rays help dental professionals assess positioning and potential impact. Eruption of these molars can cause pressure or throbbing sensations in the jaw.

Complications emerge, including difficult cleaning, gum disease, and discomfort such as jaw pain or headaches. Removal is often necessary to address these issues. Insufficient space can lead to impacted wisdom teeth, which can cause problems even without noticeable symptoms. Some may experience immediate problems, while others may encounter difficulties later in life.
