Signs Of Wisdom Teeth
The wisdom teeth are usually located in the front of the mouth, just behind the front teeth. They are six permanent teeth that help us chew and speak well. The first four wisdom teeth (baby teeth) are usually replaced by adult teeth around the age of 18-24, but the last two (molars) may remain until you reach the age of 50 or even 60.
Wisdom teeth are generally acquired in stages between ages 12 and 18. In most cases, one tooth is lost at a time, as they grow inwards. Occasionally one or more come in late. When this happens, your dentist may refer to them as impacted wisdom teeth.
There are six main signs that wisdom teeth are present:
- You experience pain when chewing with any of your lower front teeth missing.
- . You have difficulty opening wide your mouth because of overcrowding of your upper front teeth.
- . Your dentist has detected an increase in tooth decay due to an adjacent impacted tooth’s effects
- . There is inflammation along the gum line where the wisdom tooth is anchored
- . You detect an abnormal odour from within the mouth which is often perceived as anise like
