Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth Come in Between the Ages of 17 and 21

Perfect Smiles is Your Trusted Moore Family Dentist

Did you know wisdom teeth got their name because they typically come in at a mature age? While wisdom teeth can grow into your smile naturally if there’s enough space, your dentist must monitor them throughout the process. Wisdom teeth can grow crooked, partially, or not have enough room at all. There are many reasons to have your wisdom teeth removed, like pain, the risk of cysts or infections, and damage to neighboring teeth. Often it’s easier to remove wisdom teeth than expose patients to further health risks down the road.
