Wisdom Teeth and problems it causes

Wisdom teeth is a common term in Asian countries like Pakistan and India. They believe that the ending and final set of teeth which grows between 17 to 25 are called wisdom teeth.


The name is given so because this set comes at a very mature age. And people usually get more mature than teenagers.


From our very early age to the mature age, we lost our teeth and then regrow them over time. But a very last edge or set is not grown until the maturity age arrives.


Most of the time, these teeth don’t grow but there are 70 to 75% chances that every young man or woman gets these sets. These could be either one to three teeth in the above jaw and lower jaw.


These teeth may become problematic and most of the time plucked off to ease the chewing. This reason is about to explore in this piece of writing;


Highlighted problems with teeth

The last teeth set usually erupts by finding extra space in the mouth. If there is enough extra space and the other teeth are not crowded then there is no issue.


But if the newer set disturbs the other supporting teeth, it may cause certain types of ambiguities. It could become serious by damaging the jawline and bones.


Also, it invites certain types of bacteria that can create different diseases and problems. The end result could be gum infection and there are different signs which starts feeling like;

  1. Difficulty in swallowing food.

  2. Headache and jawline pain.

  3. Swelling in gums with redness

  4. Taste changing

  5. Swelling in mouth


How to cater to these signs?

If you are feeling all these signs, thoroughly consult your dentist. He will help you by making a quick observation of your teeth. He might ask you for an X-ray report of your jawline to determine if the wisdom teeth are growing or not.


If it is growing, they might devise a special plan for you either you need to remove it or grow with braces.


Also, it is recommended to keep brushing on daily basis. Get the pain killer and don’t ignore it if it gets extreme. The dentist may remove it to let your life calm from this pain.
