Most people are aware of the four major types of teeth: incisors, canines, molars and premolars. But have you ever heard about the fifth type .i.e. third molars. Third molars are also identified by the name of wisdom teeth. Third molars are called as wisdom teeth because they come out as the person, matures, .i.e. by the age of 20. Like all the other teeth, third molars also need to be taken care of. Visit your Newmarket dentist regularly for healthy wisdom teeth.
If proper attention is not given when the third molars come out through the surface of your gums, following problems can take place:
>> If they don’t appear at the correct place or are misaligned, food can get stuck between them and eventually it will result in cavities.
>> If there is not enough room for the wisdom teeth to come out, it can cause overcrowding between the teeth.
>> If a wisdom tooth comes out very close to the molars, then flossing between them will become a difficult task, and gradually the collected tartar will lead to tooth decay.
>> When a wisdom tooth ascends, it opens up the gums. If proper cleanliness is not assured, it can lead to infection in gums.
>> Wrong alignment of wisdom teeth can cause cyst in the gums.
Dentists in Newmarket believe that wisdom teeth also have a lot of benefits, which are as follows:
>> They can act as a stem cell in future for new teeth.
>> They provide a base support for bridging
>> They can fill up the space for lost molars.
Some people don’t acquire wisdom teeth for the whole of their lives. But if you have, they should be monitored continuously to avoid future problems. Some people resort to their removal too for avoiding the problems related to them. Visit your dentist Newmarket regularly for proper care of your wisdom teeth.
