Wisdom Teeth can easily be viewed as a rite of passage for many high school and college aged students, as most kids will begin to feel theirs popping up from 17 to 21 years old. However, the ideal age to have them removed can often be between the ages of 15-17 and can be younger in some cases. 

There is often inadequate space for wisdom teeth. Oftentimes, wisdom teeth grow incorrectly leaving damage and bone loss to adjacent teeth. In some cases, wisdom teeth become impacted with nowhere to grow, leaving your child with pressure (and pain) in their jaw, other teeth, and sinuses. This can be worrisome and painful.

Some other signs that indicate it is time to have your child’s wisdom teeth removed are tender or swollen gums, jaw pain, headaches, sinus issues, teeth infections, or difficulty and pain when eating. If your child has any of these symptoms, it might be time to see a specialist.
