Checking your wisdom teeth is part of a regular dental visit.

Your dentist will examine your wisdom teeth to check that they are healthy and properly positioned.

Based on the condition of your mouth, your dentist may:

  • recommend removal of one or more of your wisdom teeth
  • refer you to an oral surgeon or other specialist to provide appropriate treatment.

Wisdom teeth may need to be removed when any of the following occur in the mouth:

  • pain
  • infection
  • tumors
  • cysts
  • gum disease
  • damage to adjacent teeth
  • tooth decay (when restoring the tooth is not possible or desirable)

Your dentist or specialist may also recommend removal of teeth for others reasons.  This might include removal as part of an orthodontic, restorative or periodontal treatment plan.

The condition of your mouth changes over time and all teeth, including wisdom teeth, should be checked regularly.

Wisdom teeth should be monitored because the potential for developing problems later on still exists.

As people age, there is a greater risk for health problems including problems with their wisdom teeth.
