Be Wise and Pay Attention to Your Wisdom Teeth

Most of us want to get wiser as we get older. Maturing and developing as a human being is generally wise owlthought of as a good thing, except when it comes to your teeth. And wisdom teeth especially. After we turn 17, the issue of wisdom teeth becomes this dreaded, looming issue that we often put off addressing.

Wisdom teeth don’t always need to come out, but often times, they do. Putting off getting your wisdom teeth examined by your dentist can lead to issues down the road. If you are 17 years of age or older schedule an appointment with Jordan Dentistry in Cumming, GA. Here’s why:

  • Impacted – They might not be able to come in properly because they are so far back in the mouth. They can become impacted in the jaw bone or gums, which can be extremely painful and uncomfortable.
  • Cavities or Gum Disease – If your wisdom teeth are able to come in, you still might not be able to brush or floss them properly. This can lead to complications like cavities and gum disease.
  • Come in at wrong angle – If this happens, the wisdom teeth can press against the others and cause issues like pushing the others out of line.
  • Mouth isn’t big enough – A mouth can simply not be large enough for the teeth to come in.
