Why Do I Need to Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Oral SurgeonBetween the ages of 16-20, most people’s wisdom teeth begin to grow. In most cases, the wisdom teeth do not fit properly in patients’ mouths. If left alone, this dental crowding can cause a host of issues with your teeth.

How Do I Know if My Wisdom Teeth Need to be Removed?

In many cases, wisdom teeth grow partially erupt or sideways. Often, they are impacted, meaning that they never grow out from under the gum and bone. These circumstances can adjust the alignment of your healthy teeth. When wisdom teeth grow incorrectly, this may also cause stiffness, pain, swelling and illness.

Especially with impacted wisdom teeth, the sooner they are removed, the better. Younger patients tend to experience fewer problems before and after the procedure. When performing your wisdom teeth extraction, your Castle Rock oral surgeon may use a local or general anesthetic, depending on which is best for you.
