Wisdom Teeth

Is Your Mouth Getting A Little Too Crowded?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often need to be removed or extracted. They start forming as early as age 14 and come into the mouth at about age 18 to 21 years. Oftentimes, wisdom teeth may come in crooked or at an angle and can cause crowding of adjacent teeth. They may also become impacted and remain under the gum and bone.


Wisdom teeth extractions are a fairly common procedure. Impacted wisdom teeth can crowd your moth and eventually become painful, which is why Dr. Beauchamp recommends coming in immediately before you get an infection and are overcome with oral pain.
