When Would you Keep Your Wisdom Teeth?
If you have a wider mouth, your wisdom teeth are more likely to erupt without fully interfering with your other teeth. But it is always advised to consult with your dentist first to make sure that they are functional and not affecting your bite. Your third molars should also be cavity-free, surrounded by healthy gum tissue, and not causing any pain.
To protect and keep your full smile, you'll need to have a good oral hygiene home routine - brushing your teeth regularly with fluoride toothpaste, giving extra special attention to the back of your mouth, and flossing or cleaning between your teeth. You can also use an antibacterial mouthwash to help reduce lingering bacteria in your mouth.
Remember to visit your dentist to help you avoid wisdom teeth issues, and take x-rays during regular checkup appointments to protect your smile!
