Your wisdom teeth come in after you’ve had your adult teeth for a while–that’s why wisdom teeth are often called third molars–you already have two sets when they start to appear.) Unfortunately, that means your wisdom teeth often cause real problems for your oral health. They can start to push against your other molars, moving your whole smile out of alignment. They can also fail to fully come in, increasing your risk of gum disease and cavities.
Wisdom teeth are the topic of today’s video link from the American Dental Association. When you are finished watching the clip below, just contact us to schedule your next appointment at Appalachian Dental Care. Dr. Airey will find the best solutions for your current needs.
