WISDOM Teeth

More about
the problem

Before the wisdom teeth start erupting, we can provide professional advice after a simple X-ray if the teeth are going to cause problems and if they are even going to erupt at all. Usually, the time of their eruption is between 15 and 25 years.

where it comes from

Sometimes, when their position is correct and there is space for them, they do erupt and become a functional part of the dental arch. Other times, there is no space for them in the dental arch and they can cause orthodontic problem since they start growing and pressuring the adjacent teeth.

general treatment

Firstly, it is important that a thorough dental consultation is to be made in order to establish the current condition of the wisdom teeth.

what is
the solution

Usually, in our clinic we do the best we can to save teeth, rather than extract them. However, wisdom teeth could be an exception to this rule, especially when they cause problems.

Other times, there is no space for them in the dental arch and they can cause orthodontic problem since they start growing and pressuring the adjacent teeth. If they are pointed to the adjacent tooth, they can also cause a caries to develop. Furthermore, often they form periodontal pockets, which get inflamed and can cause pain from time to time.
