If you are in your early 20s and have friends that recently had their wisdom teeth removed, you may wonder if yours should be extracted. While there are no exact guidelines for the age at which you should get your wisdom teeth removed, there are certain factors that make it ideal to have them removed before the age of 24. Here are a few things you should understand about wisdom teeth.
If one of your front teeth is broken or chipped, you may feel self-conscious about it. You may not like smiling or letting anyone else see your teeth. You can talk to your dentist to see what can be done for the problem. Your dentist may refer you over to a cosmetic dentist so that they can give you the options that are open to you.
Your dentist can use a bonding process.
When you hear "root canal procedure," you are probably like most other adults; cringing in fear and hoping to avoid it. Avoiding it when it is needed would be an all-around bad idea, because the dentist is attempting to save the remaining living part of the affected tooth before it dies completely. In fact, you probably have more pain now than you will during the procedure or even after the procedure is complete.
