Wisdom Tooth Extraction
The average person has 32 teeth by age 18. However, in today’s world, most people do not have enough room for all 32 teeth. On average, our mouths can accommodate up to 28 teeth. If you do not have enough room in your mouth for your third molars, otherwise known as wisdom teeth, to fully erupt, several problems can happen. Impacted wisdom teeth should be removed before their root structure is fully developed. In some patients it is as early as 12 or 13, and in others it may not be until the early 20s. Problems tend to occur with increasing frequency after the age of 30.
Some of the possible problems related to not removing your wisdom teeth may include:
Damage to Neighboring Teeth
