Wisdom Teeth Growth At The Age Of 22 Years?
Good night, I am 22 years old Ninging, at my age my wisdom teeth can still grow, and to what age wisdom teeth will stop growing, thank you
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Wisdom teeth are the third molars, which can appear in their twenties. In its growth often experience problems, including:
1. The position of growth is not straight up, thus pushing the next tooth. This results in the emergence of pain in the teeth. In addition, wisdom teeth growth also becomes stunted, this condition is called tooth impaction. Impaction of teeth occurs due to the jaw being too small so that there is not enough space for the growth of wisdom teeth.
2. Because of its back position, making it difficult to reach the toothbrush when cleaning teeth, so it is easy to form plaque, which later becomes caries, which over time will damage the dental components underneath causing cavities.
For that, it is necessary to check the teeth to the dentist at least once every 6 months or more if there are problems with the teeth. Even more important is daily dental care, which can be done alone at home. The trick is to brush your teeth 2 times a day after breakfast and before going to bed. You can also gargle with an antiseptic solution to improve oral hygiene.
Thus, hopefully useful.
