Is There a Correct Age to Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?


In simple terms, no. Some people get their #wisdomteethremoved at a young age, while some others get them in adulthood. The average mouth has inadequate room for #thirdmolars, also known as wisdom teeth. Because of this problem, wisdom teeth usually are not able to erupt properly into the mouth.


If your wisdom teeth need to be remove, it would be better to take them out younger because the healing process would be a bit quicker. If you’re in your 40s with all your wisdom teeth and they cause no oral health complications, taking them out is not necessary. If you’re unsure, you should schedule an appointment to get a proper wisdom tooth examination and treatment plan.


According to the ADA, wisdom teeth that are not removed should continue to be monitored because the potential for developing problems later on still exists. As people age, they are at greater risk for #healthproblems—and that includes potential problems with their wisdom teeth. Be sure to, floss around your wisdom teeth and visit your dentist regularly. Regular dental visits allow your #dentist to evaluate your wisdom teeth and your overall dental health.
