Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth usually appear in young adults between the ages of 15 and 25. Some wisdom teeth will grow in normally; others are "impacted." An impacted wisdom tooth allows no room for the rest of your teeth to grow. Dr. Currey uses X-rays to evaluate whether your wisdom teeth have any chance of coming in properly and can advise you on the best time to have wisdom tooth removal.

When there is no room for wisdom teeth to come in correctly or when the teeth haven't reached their permanent location by age 25, then they're considered to be impacted wisdom teeth. Dr. Currey recommends removing the tooth early, before wisdom tooth and other dental complications can develop.
