'Your mouth goes through many changes in your lifetime. One major dental milestone that usually takes place between the ages of 17 and 21 is the appearance of your third molars. Historically, these teeth have been called wisdom teeth because they come through at a more mature age.'
'When they come through correctly, healthy wisdom teeth can help you chew. It’s normal to feel a little discomfort when your wisdom teeth appear, but if you have pain, see your dentist immediately (mouthhealhty.org)."
Take a look at this brief and informative video from the ADA (American Dental Association) and Mouth Healthy to become wise about your wisdom teeth, all in less than 2 minutes!
If you think you are having pain or problems with your wisdom teeth, or aren't sure if yours have come in fully yet, come visit Dr. Mansfield for a quick evaluation! He can help you assess your oral health and come up with a plan of action. Learn more by visiting: www.germantowndentalcare.com!
