The Normal Age for Wisdom Tooth Eruption and Other Wisdom Tooth Facts

Wisdom teeth are something of a mystery to most people. They know very little about them, but have a lot of misconceptions that go with them. It is important that you know what to expect when it comes to handling wisdom teeth.

This can help you be better prepared when they begin to come in. Here are a few things that are important to know prior to your wisdom teeth erupting.

What to Know About Wisdom Teeth

Typically, wisdom teeth start to come in between 17 and 22 years old. They occasionally show up outside this window, but this is when the vast majority of them show up. Not all wisdom teeth that come in, require extraction, either.

This is one of the biggest misconceptions that people tend to have about wisdom teeth. Many people need them extracted, but some people actually have enough room to safely have them in their mouth forever.

Some wisdom teeth only come in part of the way, or come in and push other teeth around. This is why the majority of wisdom teeth get extracted. If your wisdom teeth came in partially, or came in facing the wrong way, such as the roof of the mouth, then they will need to come out. That is where we can come in to help. We have a lot of experience extracting teeth in general, specifically wisdom teeth.

If you have issues with your erupting wisdom teeth, or even have problems with wisdom teeth that you have had for years, call us. We can have you come in, take some x-rays, and perform a full examination. From there, we can determine what the next steps would be, no matter if it is maintaining a close eye on them or extracting them.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at (775) 430-5355 today.
