Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are third molars and most commonly appear between the ages of 17 and 25 years. Most adults have four wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have less or more, and these commonly affect other teeth as they develop; becoming impacted or partially erupted causing risk of infection, or poor alignment damaging adjacent teeth, the jawbone or nerves. When this happens it is a common procedure to have wisdom teeth removed. At Kincorth Dental we understand how frustrating and painful wisdom teeth can be, and our specialist, professional team can offer you all the advice and information you need on treating any underlying issues your wisdom teeth may be causing you.
