Wisdom teeth are the last set of permanent teeth to erupt, and often appear sometime between the ages of 15 and 25. While some wisdom teeth come in straight, most people have teeth that come in sideways or become impacted with the gums. This is often because by the time wisdom teeth erupt there is simply not enough room left in the mouth to accommodate them.

Impacted wisdom teeth can pose significant risks to your oral health, including:

  • Infections of the Gum & Abscesses
  • Headaches & Jaw Pain
  • Damage to the Jaw Bone
  • Shifting of Permanent Teeth
  • Since removing risky wisdom teeth early can avoid significant problems to the alignment and health of your permanent teeth, Dr. Sherberg will evaluate the status of your wisdom teeth with a thorough exam and X-rays. If he finds that the teeth are not erupting properly, he will thoroughly explain your options for removal and design a treatment plan that addresses your needs. It is important to have wisdom teeth removed earlier rather than later to avoid other dental issues such as damage to the permanent teeth or infection. The American Dental Association strongly endorses that wisdom teeth be removed before a person reaches young adulthood in order to prevent future problems and to promote optimal healing.
