When it comes to your oral health, it is important to know what is happening in your smile. Wisdom teeth can pop up as you age, and can cause problems for many. Here at Baxter Dental in Baxter, Minnesota, we are proud to offer you help and information about wisdom teeth.

Your smile goes through diverse stages in your life. Most begin your life with no teeth above the gums, then grow baby teeth, which is followed by your permanent teeth. In most people, the growth of wisdom teeth is another stage your smile endures. Wisdom teeth, when they first grow in, can cause some pain and discomfort, which is why it’s important to see your dentist, Dr. Scott Timmons or Dr. Justin Gangestad, as soon as you can.

Sometimes, your wisdom teeth can grow in seamlessly, while other times, they may not have room enough to grow, which causes serious problems for your teeth. In several different cases, it is usually best to have your wisdom teeth removed to keep your teeth in their healthy, ideal alignment. It can also be very tough to brush or floss your back wisdom teeth, making a great place for cavities to develop and grow. That is why it is so important to talk to your dentist, so you know which option is best for you.
