Learn More about Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are another name for the third molars that are the final four teeth that come in for most people between the ages of 17 and 25 years. Dentists theorize that this third molar was necessary in the past, but is no longer as useful to us in modern day. In fact, many people’s mouths cannot accommodate the erupting wisdom teeth and this causes them to come in crooked or impacted, which can cause a variety of unwanted oral health problems like gum disease, crowding, and damaged adjacent teeth. When a wisdom tooth does not have sufficient space in the mouth, an impacted wisdom tooth and the related dental problems can typically be entirely avoided by extracting them before they can cause any problems.

Dr. Goehring of Goehring Dental, has been proudly serving the wisdom tooth needs of their patients living in and near the Austin, TX area. It's common for the wisdom teeth to become impacted which can cause pain and swelling of the gums, shifting or migrating teeth due to crowding, and can even cause structural damage to adjacent teeth. Dental problems from wisdom teeth can range from mild to severe, but they will never be resolved without treatment from a highly trained wisdom tooth expert such as Dr. Goehring. There are cases in which wisdom teeth settle into the mouth in a healthy manner, but there are many more instances of wisdom teeth causing problems later on down the road which could have been prevented by removing them altogether. Dr. Goehring has the experience and know-how needed to make the important decisions regarding wisdom tooth extraction for his Austin, TX and neighboring area patients.
The first step of the wisdom tooth examination
performed by Dr. Goehring involves a visual inspection of the oral cavity to check for signs of infections, decay, gum disease, and impacted or crowded teeth. Dr. Goehring will then take x-rays of the patient's mouth and will then evaluate the positions of the wisdom teeth before he makes his diagnosis. Generally, even if it seems like wisdom teeth may have enough space to grow into the mouth, wisdom teeth are capable of causing serious oral health problems that can be avoided by removing them.
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, usually erupt and grow into the mouth during a patient's late teens or early twenties. For many, this period marks a transition from adolescence into adulthood and the wisdom that comes with age. Ironically, it is true that removing wisdom teeth before they have an opportunity to wreak havoc on one's oral health is one of the wisest decisions that a young adult can make!
