Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are typically not necessary to maintain optimum dental health. In fact, they can actually be a detriment to your oral health, and here's why:
- There is often not enough room for wisdom teeth, and they may crowd other teeth causing them to move and shift.
- Some wisdom teeth don't erupt at all and remain stuck beneath the gum line (impacted). An impacted tooth can result in an infection.
- It can be challenging to brush and floss wisdom teeth because they are so far back in your mouth. Plaque or tartar buildup can result in problems with gum disease or tooth decay.
