Being a teenager is stressful enough. Between the ages of seventeen and twenty-one wisdom teeth begin to grow in. These teeth are the last four molars in the back corners of the mouth. When these teeth have enough room to grow in properly, they present no cause for concern, however this is not often the case.
Wisdom teeth usually do not have adequate room to grow, which can cause the teeth to become impacted, fractured, or trapped under the gum and bone, all of which can cause severe pain and discomfort. Improperly aligned wisdom teeth can cause a host of oral health issues, including infections, which result from wounds that the teeth that open on the gums. Infection can cause swelling, irritation, and further pain which can interfere with eating, talking, and many other aspects of everyday life.
