Complete Care for Your Wisdom Teeth

Are you experiencing a dull but persistent pain toward the back of your mouth? If so, and if you have not yet had your wisdom teeth removed, then they are probably to blame! Most people must get their wisdom teeth removed. That is because the average person simply does not have adequate space for them in their mouth. Some dental offices must refer patients to an outside specialist for wisdom teeth extractions in Hamden. At New Haven Dental Group, though, we are able to perform this procedure right here in our Hamden dental office.

What Are the Wisdom Teeth?

The most popular theory on wisdom teeth states that due to the extremely rough diet of our earliest ancestors, they needed an extra set of molars — the wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop, normally appearing when a person is in their late teens or early 20s. As cooking techniques have improved and foods have become easier to eat, the human jaw has become smaller over time, meaning that the wisdom teeth literally do not fit in most people’s mouths. Thus, these third molars can cause all kinds of problems as they struggle to erupt from the gum line, including pain, teeth crowding, and even infection. Our team always checks on the wisdom teeth during routine exams so we can spot even the earliest signs of trouble and hopefully remove them before they cause any serious issues.
