Between the ages of 17 and 25, your wisdom teeth are going to start erupting. For many people, these teeth don’t cause problems. However, for some, it can lead to oral health issues, including crowding in your mouth. 

We’re sharing a video by the American Dental Association (ADA) that talks a bit about your wisdom teeth and why they can cause problems. If you are noticing signs yours are coming in, such as swelling behind your second molars, jaw ache, or tenderness in the back of your mouth, it’s important to visit us for an exam.

Dr. Wallin will discuss with you whether or not extraction is necessary. He’ll also review the process if it does appear necessary to extract them. To discuss your wisdom teeth, call Silver Leaf Dentistry today at 720-504-2539 for an appointment in Longmont, CO or request an appointment online.
