Wisdom teeth treatments for children
What you need to know
Wisdom teeth often erupt later in life – sometimes not until someone is 30 or even more. As adults, we often don’t pay too much attention to our wisdom teeth unless a caries develops or we feel discomfort.
With children, however, wisdom teeth should be monitored closely. Improper eruption of a wisdom tooth can cause the entire smile to shift, become wonky, and can even affect the bite. If your child’s wisdom teeth are erupting, book an appointment to begin the monitoring progress and help your little one’s teeth remain healthy and their jaw development – correct.
Maintaining perfect hygiene is quite important for the wisdom teeth which are generally difficult to reach. In-clinic, professional hygiene can be your kid’s best ally!

Treating caries on wisdom teeth as early as possible will protect the teeth and extend their life.
If a wisdom tooth is causing trouble such as pain and discomfort or pushing the teeth and changing their alignment, sometimes the best option is to have it extracted. We do this gently, with the greatest care on your kid’s experience, making sure it doesn’t change their desire to visit the dentist.
