Gaining Wisdom on Wisdom Teeth | Dr. Esteban Parada

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, can often bring along a host of complications as they make their debut in your mouth. At SoFlo Dental, Dr. Esteban Parada and our team are dedicated to helping you understand the implications of your wisdom teeth on your overall health.

Between the ages of 17 and 25, most individuals will experience the emergence of their wisdom teeth. However, as reported by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), up to 90% of people may encounter issues due to impacted wisdom teeth, where there’s insufficient space for proper growth.

Impacted wisdom teeth pose significant concerns, including infection and damage to neighboring teeth. Because they are challenging to clean, they become susceptible to bacterial buildup, potentially leading to infections and gum disease if left untreated.

But the impact of wisdom teeth doesn’t stop there. Infections stemming from wisdom teeth can have broader health implications, potentially affecting vital organs like the heart and kidneys. This underscores the importance of addressing wisdom tooth-related issues promptly.

Regular dental check-ups are crucial for monitoring the health of your wisdom teeth, even if you’re not experiencing any pain or discomfort. Our trained team can assess their condition and recommend appropriate measures, including removal if necessary, to safeguard your oral and overall health.

Maintaining a diligent oral hygiene routine is also paramount in preventing complications associated with wisdom teeth. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing regularly can help minimize the risk of infections and other oral health issues.

If you have questions about your wisdom teeth or would like to schedule an examination, don’t hesitate to reach out to SoFlo Dental. Dr. Esteban Parada and our compassionate team are here to provide the guidance and care you need for a healthy, confident smile.
