Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to erupt into the mouth, generally between the ages of 16-25. Some wisdom teeth erupt normally and become functional. Far more often, one or more wisdom teeth fail to erupt properly; when this happens, the affected teeth are said to be impacted.

Problems Caused by Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth problems are very common. For most people, the jaw bone is not big enough to fit all 32 permanent teeth. Since wisdom teeth are the last to develop, they are often tilted, crowded out of position, or blocked by the overlying bone or gums. More than 90% of people have at least one impacted wisdom tooth. Erupting wisdom teeth cause crowding in other areas of the mouth potentially ruining a successful orthodontic treatment.
Impacted wisdom teeth
When the wisdom teeth begin to erupt, usually in the late teens or early 20s, a recurrent cycle of infection of the gums can occur, especially in impacted teeth. This causes dull pain near the teeth or in the jaws. Sometimes the pain projects up into the ear and side of the face or down into the neck. The swollen tissues often cause accidental cheek biting, that becomes painful and irritating.
Ideal Time for Wisdom Teeth Removal
The ideal time for removal is at about age 16. When the roots of the teeth are still immature, surgical removal is rather simple and a young person is capable of optimal healing. Wisdom teeth can be removed as early as age 11-12.
Dental Implants: The Solution of Choice
Dental implants are the most important advance in dentistry of our generation. They are a quantum leap forward compared to bridgework or removable teeth. These prior technologies only covered up for missing teeth, whereas dental implants are long-term replacements that actually restore the missing tooth and root structures.
Dental implants are the best treatment choice in nearly every situation where teeth are missing – no painful dentures, no metal prongs, and no grinding down of healthy teeth. The implants act as replacement roots, renewing stimulation of the jawbone to maintain its strength. The dental implants success rate, about 98% for most situations, is far superior to other treatments. Their longevity has been proven for over 45 years, and they can be expected to last about as long as natural teeth.
Nearly everyone is a candidate for dental implant treatment, even those who have chronic dental problems, decayed teeth, or have been missing teeth for decades. Dental implant procedures involve minimal recovery time and can be painlessly performed while asleep.

How Dental Implants Work
The actual implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jaw. After healing, the implant will completely fuse with the jawbone to function as a new root.
The abutment attaches to the implant and serves as a connector between the implant and the crown.
The crown, which is custom fabricated by your restorative dentist, is fitted onto the abutment to recreate the natural shape and appearance of your tooth.
Depending on how many implants are placed, a single tooth, a segment of several implant-supported teeth, or even an entire set of new teeth can be made.
Problems Caused by Missing Teeth
When your tooth is lost (or never developed), the jawbone in the area begins to melt away – a process called atrophy. This progressive bone loss weakens the jawbone, and may complicate eventual implant placement. Missing teeth also allow adjecent teeth to drift out of position.
When back teeth are lost, the more delicate front teeth quickly wear down. They get shorter and shorter until they are lost altogether. The shape of the face also becomes short and more square. Missing back teeth can also cause clicking, pain, or arthritis of the jaw joint. That is why it is always best to have missing teeth replaced, even if they are in the back of the mouth.
Teeth In A Day
A New Smile in Just One Day
If you have trouble with your teeth, you are not alone. Many adults suffer from severe tooth decay, gum disease, or lots of broken or missing teeth.

The problems of missing teeth, ugly teeth, bad breath, or lousy chewing may seem overwhelming, in addition the treatment can be costly with uncertain results. Not any more.
