Wisdom Teeth Removal
About 35% of people will never have to deal with wisdom teeth, and chances are that percentage does not include you. Wisdom teeth can erupt at any time during adulthood, and if that time has come for you or someone in your family, the dentist and the team at Dental Renaissance are here to help. Call 972-423-0880 for an appointment for wisdom teeth removal in Plano, Texas, with Dr. Kari Blankenship.
Wisdom teeth are the last molars on each side of the jaw. They are usually the last teeth to come in or erupt, usually between ages 16 and 20. Since they are the last of your permanent teeth to come in, there may not be enough room for them to grow in properly without becoming impacted or disturbing other teeth. Wisdom teeth that do not erupt properly can cause dental problems such as:
- Disturbance to the alignment of your teeth
- Damage to surrounding teeth
- Tooth decay
- Damage to the jawbone
- Tenderness, swelling and infection in the gums and other tissues in the mouth
