How do you know if I have wisdom teeth?

During your dental health check at Hello Dental, Colchester, we check for signs of wisdom tooth eruption using radiographs and checks inside your mouth.

For most people wisdom teeth erupt around the age of 17-21, although uncommon people 30+ may experience their wisdom teeth coming in.

There are some signs you can look out for if you believe you may be receiving your wisdom teeth:

  • Do your gums feel tender?

  • Is the gum or jaw swollen or bleeding?

  • Have you noticed a bad taste or smelly breathe?

  • Is it uncomfortable when opening your mouth?
