Do you have WISDOM teeth?


Wisdom teeth also called third molars.

(This is an x-ray of any impacted tooth)

Impacted wisdom teeth are extremely common.

Wisdom teeth usually become impacted when your jaw doesn’t have enough space to accommodate your teeth. Sometimes, a tooth may erupt at the wrong angle, which can lead to impaction. They usually erupt between the ages of 17 to 25.

Fully impacted wisdom teeth aren’t visible. They’re completely hidden underneath your gums. A partially impacted wisdom tooth is slightly visible because part of it has erupted. Non-impacted wisdom teeth have erupted and are completely visible above your gum line. It’s important to note that non-impacted wisdom teeth can still cause problems.

Common problems caused due to wisdom teeth:

    Pain or swelling of the jaw.

    Red, swollen or bleeding gums.

    A bad taste in your mouth.

    Bad breath (halitosis).

    Difficulty opening your mouth all the way. 

    Problems to the adjacent tooth.
