When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Removed?
At What Age Should Your Wisdom Teeth Be Removed?
The rate at which wisdom teeth develop varies from person to person. Many people never need them removed. Those that do will begin to notice problems, such as pain and or swelling, in their late teen years or early 20's. They do not have to be removed until they become a problem. However, some people don’t want to wait until problems raise their ugly heads and so they take preemptive measures to have them removed before-hand.
One major advantage of removing wisdom teeth early is that the roots are not fully in place and, in some cases, that means a faster and less painful recovery.
You should consider removal of your wisdom tooth/teeth if they are causing the following:
- You have a buildup of pain in your jaw
- Infection of the soft tissues of the mouth develop
- Tooth decay is significant
- Tumors or cysts develop in the mouth
- Your Wisdom teeth are causing a misalignment or some other type of damage to the other teeth
