The Basics of Understanding Wisdom Teeth

Posted .

Wisdom teeth are common and can cause your smile some pain. That is why, our team here at Lee F. Peterson DDS in Hanford, California, is happy to help you understand your wisdom teeth, and what you can do if they begin to appear on you.

Your smile goes through many different stages in your life. You begin with no teeth, then grow baby teeth, which is followed by your permanent teeth. In most people, wisdom teeth are another stage your smile endures. Wisdom teeth, when they begin to grow in, can cause some pain and discomfort, which is why it’s important to see your dentist, Dr. Lee F. Peterson as soon as you can.

Sometimes, your wisdom teeth can grow in perfectly, while other times, they may not have room enough to grow, which causes serious problems for your teeth. In some cases, it is usually best to have your wisdom teeth removed in order to keep your teeth in their healthy, ideal alignment. It can also be very difficult to brush or floss your back wisdom teeth, making a great place for cavities to develop and grow. That is why it is so essential to talk to your dentist, so you know which option is best for you.
