Preventive examination and x-ray

As a preventive measure, it is strongly recommended to undergo an examination at the age of 15 or 16 in order to assess the progression of wisdom teeth and to know their probable orientation. If removal is necessary, it is much easier between the ages of 18 and 21 while the roots are not yet fully formed.

If root formation is already completed and the teeth positioned, we might recommend to keep or to remove your wisdom teeth, depending on the situation.

Even in the absence of pain, do not underestimate the importance of this monitoring because it is very likely that your wisdom teeth will cause you problems at some point in your life. If you already show signs of infection or damage to adjacent teeth, surgery will surely be recommended.
