Generally Speaking About Wisdom Teeth
Certain individuals will never have to remove their wisdom teeth even though the growth patterns can be somewhat irregular. However, patients who do need their wisdom teeth removed but ignore the procedure for any period of time run the risk of several health complications. It is common for wisdom teeth to negatively impact adjoining teeth along with various other conditions such as infections and even tumors, not to mention the impact on general overall health.
Wisdom Tooth Formation
In almost all cases, wisdom teeth are completely formed at 18 years of age. It is therefore recommended that the removal take place anywhere between the ages of 15 to 18. But not all cases are the same, and through further analysis, the right time would be determined on a patient to patient basis. Often, a general or family dentist will be the first to discover an issue with your wisdom teeth - typically through x-rays during routine dental check-ups.
