Wisdom Teeth Denistone
Wisdom teeth are the back molars, the very last teeth to emerge in the mouth. Most of our permanent teeth are in place when we reach our early teens. But wisdom teeth will not emerge until we are in at least our late teens or early twenties. In some individuals, the wisdom teeth either never develop, or never emerge from the jaw.
Unfortunately, wisdom teeth can cause problems. Often there is not enough room in the mouth for these extra teeth, and they either punch other teeth out of alignment or do not fully emerge from the jaw. In some cases, the wisdom teeth are partly overgrown by gum, and become prone to infection because they are so difficult to clean. Often the wisdom teeth are removed.

Wisdom teeth will be removed if they are causing problems. This is an awkward procedure, but it is often necessary, and the discomfort will not last forever. It should take 6 to 8 weeks for the jaw to completely recover.
The main issue with wisdom teeth is the lack of room in the mouth, the extra molars simply do not have enough room. we might question why the human body has such a disfunction.
Some research suggests that young human babies that chew hard food will develop slightly larger jaws. This allows slightly more room for the wisdom teeth later on. Our culture, which tends to encourage softer food at a young age, maybe inadvertently cause problems later on by not allowing the jaws to develop correctly.
Other research has suggested that injections in the jaw at a young age, usually for anesthetic, will prevent wisdom teeth from developing later on. This is still not fully understood and is open to further research.
Braces will give us straighter teeth and jaws. If we have braces as teenagers we can benefit from the improved teeth for the rest of our lives. Unfortunately, this can be compromised by the wisdom teeth, which will come through long after the braces have been removed.
If we suspect we have wisdom tooth issues we should have the situation examined by a dentist. Immediate treatment will prevent the emerging wisdom teeth from causing too much damage.
Invisalign is a way to straighten minor to moderate tooth alignment problems without braces. This is sometimes used to fix issues caused by wisdom teeth.
