Have you wondered if you have wisdom teeth? And how will you recognize when it’s the right time to extract them? There are a few things you can monitor to tell if you have wisdom teeth, but to really understand them, you should consult a professional like Dr. Thi Hoang. Try a couple of these identification means, and let us know if you find anything you’re curious about. We have gone through the training needed to remove wisdom teeth, and we’d love to help you if you need to have them removed.
The most obvious method to know if you have wisdom teeth is to look for a third molar in any of the areas where molars are situated. However, because wisdom teeth can be impacted (hidden) beneath the gums, you may not be able to find them. If you feel severe pain in any of the locations where a third molar would be set, this could be a signal that a wisdom tooth is coming out. This feeling usually manifests as a throb.
