Wisdom Teeth also known as the third molars generally begin coming into the mouth between the ages of 17 to 25. Wisdom teeth are recommended to be removed for several reasons: they can cause crowding and misalignment to your front teeth, cavities, infections and resorption of teeth in the area of the second molars. In addition a very small risk of forming a cyst. Wisdom teeth do not provide a lot of benefit and only account for 1 to 3% of your chewing. Contact Dr. Benjamin Yagoubian at Torrance Oral Surgery Center and Dental Implant Center to have your wisdom teeth evaluated with a panoramic x-ray.
