Wisdom Teeth

When wisdom teeth decide to grow (usually between ages of 17 and 25) it can cause some distress and pain.

They are the last teeth to appear in the mouth and normally consist of two in the upper jaw and two in the lower jaw.

Some people may have less and some may have more!

Many wisdom teeth will not cause problems at all and may not need to be removed. A special x-ray called OPG will need to be performed in order to determine this.

Associated problems with wisdom teeth include:

  • Red, inflamed and swollen gums
  • Localized infection and pus around the gum
  • Swollen lymph glands
  • Fever
  • Difficulty swallowing

Antibiotics may be used initially for treating the infection however a consultation with a dentist is required to review your condition.

Wisdom Teeth can often lead to many other dental issues such as teeth crowding, infections, ulcers and difficulty brushing.

While you cannot stop your wisdom teeth from growing, regular check-ups and visits will allow us to monitor their progress and provide advice.
