Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt and will typically appear in people during their late teenage years or early 20s. Sometimes, wisdom teeth fill in correctly and will not require extraction. In other cases, wisdom teeth may become impacted and push into other teeth. The issue can be painful and harmful to your teeth and gums, thus requiring a need for an extraction.
Board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons Dr. Prabh Grewal and Dr. Arthur Kilkuts at Corona Oral Surgery and Implant Center have performed many wisdom tooth extractions for Corona, Norco, and Eastvale, CA area patients. Our expert team is dedicated to helping people who need assistance in removing these teeth that might be impacted and could harm other healthy teeth.
Do I need to have my wisdom teeth extracted?
Most people will see their wisdom teeth come in before they turn 30. It isn’t common for wisdom teeth to erupt in those over 30, but it is possible. Many people who develop their wisdom teeth after 30 might not have to worry about any issues. The teeth could be straight enough to where no further action is needed. Sometimes, you might be able to live with all your wisdom teeth without having to extract anything, but this would depend on how well they develop and how they are aligned with the rest of the teeth.
How can I tell if I need my wisdom teeth extracted?
If your wisdom teeth are presenting with problems, then it could be a sign that they need to be removed. The maxillofacial surgeons at Corona Oral Surgery and Implant Center in Corona, CA recommend you look at these points if you’re in your 30s and are dealing with wisdom tooth issues:
- Watch for how well you can clean your teeth. Wisdom teeth that are difficult to clean or maintain may need to be removed, as they could make it easier for you to develop dental issues.
- Note any pains you experience in the wisdom tooth areas and if the pains can be easily treated. Teeth that are consistently painful and cannot be treated through some medicines may need removal.
- You may also notice pains when chewing or moving your mouth. The wisdom teeth might push their way into the other teeth at this point.
- You could also experience bleeding issues around your teeth. The wisdom teeth might puncture parts of the gums and cause bleeding in the area.
Wisdom teeth can be a worry for anyone in Corona, CA to note, especially as you get older. While your wisdom teeth aren’t as likely to appear in your 30s, it could still happen. They may also become more noticeable at this point, as they might produce immense pain that requires extraction.
