Solana Beach Teens and College Students attention: Summer is the time to check your Wisdom Teeth

Solana Beach Dentist Solana Beach Orthodontics Wisdom teeth, also referred to as third molars, get their name by being the last teeth to come in during young adulthood, the time of life when you gain maturity or “wisdom.” Most people have most of their permanent teeth by age 13. Your wisdom teeth should come into your mouth between the ages of 17-21. Sometimes they do not have enough room to come in normally or are in the wrong position to come straight up. When that happens, your dentist may refer to them as impacted and they may have to be removed.

Not everyone’s teeth develop on the same schedule. That’s why it’s important to see your Solana Beach Smiles Dentist regularly so he or she can monitor the progress of your wisdom teeth. Every patient is unique, but in general, wisdom teeth may need to be removed when there is evidence of changes in the mouth such as:

pain

infection

cysts

tumors

damage to adjacent teeth

gum disease

tooth decay (if it is not possible or desirable to restore the tooth)

Your Solana Beach Dentist or specialist may also recommend removing your wisdom teeth to prevent problems or for other reasons, such as when removal is part of getting braces, treating gums or other dental procedures. Call us today at 858-481-7155

I was visiting CA when I cracked a molar. Dr Jesse was able to get me in on short notice. His staff are so friendly and he and his staff are also very honest. My situation was a challenge which he met going above and beyond. I was so grateful to my daughter for recommending him!
