Wisdom teeth have been outed by years of evolution. Humans do not necessarily need this set of molars anymore, and though more teeth wouldn’t necessarily hurt in theory, they often do because the human skull has shifted in shape to accommodate a larger brain. As a result, there is less room left for wisdom teeth, the last molars to develop. This is also why wisdom teeth often experience difficulties developing and need to be removed. Here at the offices of Lens Schwarzbaum DDS, you can get your wisdom teeth out if you need. Call us or visit if you need care for wisdom teeth in Upper East Side and Dr. Schwarzbaum will provide you with the care you need.
Because human skulls no longer have room for the wisdom teeth, they often develop crooked or impacted. This often means that these molars come in sideways or grow towards your other, already-developed teeth. This can cause a number of problems, including incredible pain and excessive teeth crowding. Wisdom teeth are called such because they do not develop until later on in life, usually around the ages of 18-21 or so but some people may develop them earlier or later than others. Routine dental x-rays can tell where the wisdom teeth are and how they are developing, identifying any impacted teeth early on. If a person has impacted wisdom teeth, they may be removed before they truly begin to develop to avoid major dental trauma. Here at the offices of Lens Schwarzbaum DDS, you can get remove the wisdom teeth in Upper East Side. Sometimes, wisdom teeth are removed for other reasons. In some cases, they come in just fine, but are difficult to clean and may be prone to cavities, in which case they may still need to be removed.
