Wisdom Tooth Growth Period?
how long does it usually take for wisdom teeth to erupt?
Hello nadiap, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Wisdom teeth, also known as 3rd molars, are the teeth located at the back, which are the last teeth to erupt. The growth of these teeth varies from person to person, but on average these teeth will begin to grow at the age of 17-25 years. The length of time these teeth come out can also vary, if there are no disturbances (eg impacted teeth or crushed by the teeth in front of them), these teeth will come out within 1 month. If the implant is too narrow, the tooth may come out more slowly, even if the place is really narrow and not enough to come out, the tooth may only partially come out and not be able to come out again. This condition is known as tooth impaction. In the event of an impacted wisdom tooth that causes symptoms such as toothache, swelling of the gums, headache, pain when chewing, etc., it is usually advisable to have the wisdom tooth extracted.
If you experience problems with the growth of wisdom teeth, you can consult a dentist for further evaluation and management. Usually the dentist will ask for a panoramic x-ray of the teeth to see the condition and position of the wisdom teeth.
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
