Hi, I’m Marketing Specialist Kirk Peery, and today in the Taylorsville dental blog we will be discussing the often misunderstood subject of wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth are sometimes called the third molars because they are even farther back in the mouth than the two sets of regular molars we all have. These four teeth usually erupt when a person is eighteen or nineteen.
Many dentists in the Herriman, Riverton, and Taylorsville area recommend that wisdom teeth be removed to prevent misplacement in the mouth.
If a wisdom tooth doesn’t fully erupt, it may cause an opening in the gums that can attract bacteria and become infected. Some wisdom teeth are so misplaced that they can actually cause problems with the jaw bone. Both of these conditions can cause severe pain.
If you are in the Salt Lake City area and are wondering if your wisdom teeth need to be removed, call us today at 801-870-0623 to schedule an appointment. We can assess the condition and placement of your wisdom teeth and discuss a treatment plan.
We can also answer any questions you have about smile makeovers. Because there are so many quick and effective cosmetic dentistry procedures available, such as invisible braces, veneers, teeth whitening, and dental implants, anyone in Salt Lake City can have a perfect smile. I love giving my Taylorsville patients the smiles they’ve always wanted.
