Though it has nothing to do with wisdom, people refer to this issue as Wisdom Teeth because they are the final and third set of molars that one gets in their late teens or early twenties. Actually these are just misaligned teeth, which don’t have any function but can emerge at the most unlikely of places in the mouth like above the tongue or even at extreme corners of your molars. The signs here include extreme tooth pain and fever.
HOW IS WISDOM TEETH DIAGNOSED?
The dental team will usually take x-rays to see the position of the root, and to decide whether there is room for the tooth to come through into a useful position.
HOW IS WISDOM TEETH TREATED?
Usually treatments for wisdom teeth include their removal through minor surgical procedures. If it is too small and is not bothering you then you can also leave it. Medicines are given for pain relief and fever.
DID YOU KNOW?
However, doctors prefer removal of teeth to ensure they don't cause trouble later on, especially with risk of teeth falling off.
