Del Mar Teens and College Students attention: Summer is the time to check your Wisdom Teeth

Del Mar Dentist Wisdom Teeth Del Mar

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 Del Mar Highlands 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 Del Mar 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 858-350-1005

I have a great experience with Dr. Jessy Sidhu and the way their team sort my dental problem with their latest techniques. Such an amazing team with the focused aim to treat patients in best way. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is searching for the best dentist.

We just moved to the area and I have seen 2 other dentist for me and my children. Both were highly disappointing. By real estate agent happen to be who recommended I see Dr. Jessy, and so I did. I must say to help everyone out there searching for a family dentist. This is definitely the one for us. Thanks Dr. Jessy. The boys can’t wait for their next visit.
