What We Can Do When Your Wisdom Teeth Come In Awkwardly


Posted on 1/20/2020 by Clackamas Oral Surgery Office
What We Can Do When Your Wisdom Teeth Come In AwkwardlyThere are teeth in your mouth that are supposed to make you smarter. If you are not sure what we are talking about, let us be the first to tell you- it's your wisdom teeth. Of course, wisdom teeth do not actually make you smarter. It is our way of telling you that wisdom teeth are the last set of teeth to come in.

Wisdom teeth represent your third set of molars, and because they come in so late, people think you are smarter when your teeth come in. Although this idea of wisdom teeth is a silly one, one thing that is not silly is the amount of trouble you can get into with wisdom teeth when they come in. If wisdom teeth do not come in correctly, they can cause pain and infection. Here is some more information about wisdom teeth.

Why Wisdom Teeth are a Problem


You don't really need wisdom teeth. Adults can make it just fine without wisdom teeth. They are still able to crush or grind food with the other two sets of molars. In fact, many adults have to have their wisdom teeth removed. That's because wisdom teeth don't always come in the way they should.

Sometimes, they come in crooked. Wisdom teeth can also come in too close to other teeth. There are also wisdom teeth that don't come in at all. When wisdom teeth come in awkwardly, or not at all, they may become infected. They can become impacted as well, which means they are stuck in one place and will not move forward. We usually remove wisdom teeth when they are impacted. Sometimes, we have to remove wisdom teeth when they are overcrowded as well.

Do you have questions about your wisdom teeth? Contact us today and let us help you with your wisdom teeth issues.
