Wisdom teeth are the last teeth that erupt within the mouth at the age of late teens or early twenties. For some people, they align properly and gum tissue will be healthy. Unfortunately, for some people they do not align properly and block the adjacent teeth. These poorly positioned teeth often cause many problems such as bacterial infection (pericoronitis), a higher risk of developing cavities, and cyst formations which can damage bone and gum tissue.
Most people’s mouths are too small to accommodate the final set of molars. A thorough examination will help us track the position and progress of wisdom teeth throughout development. Having regular dental exams can help you and your dentist to prevent wisdom teeth from causing problems beneath the surface of your gums. If the wisdom teeth start growing sideways, we recommend getting it removed. For wisdom teeth diagnosis and removal options in Winnipeg, Integral Dental, Ellice Dental, and Pearl Dental can help you.
