Wisdom Teeth Do Not Give You Wisdom, Just Problems

A long-running joke about wisdom teeth is that they provide you with wisdom. However, people who have dealt with the unexpected guests in their mouth know that wisdom teeth only give pain and cause serious oral health issues. When they sprout at the back of your mouth, take it as indication to visit Rose Rock Dental.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars, which come out around the age of 17 to 25. Dentists recommend people remove their wisdom teeth if they are crowding other teeth or they are impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth are the most common problem we encounter at Rose Rock Dental.

By prolonging the wisdom teeth extraction procedure, the likelihood of a wisdom teeth infection increases. Impacted wisdom teeth create small pockets in your mouth, which become the ground for infections and bacteria to form. Additionally, wisdom teeth press on against the surrounding teeth, causing you discomfort and pain. Wisdom teeth extraction in Norman, OK is your best bet to eliminating the throbbing and damage caused by their unfortunate appearance.
