Have you wondered if you have wisdom teeth? And how will you understand when it’s the right time to extract them? There are a few things you can take note of to tell if you have wisdom teeth, but to really understand them, you should consult a medical professional like Dr. Spear. Try a couple of these identification means, and give us a call if you find anything you’re curious about. We’ve been working with wisdom teeth for a long time now, and we’d love to help you if you need to have your wisdom teeth removed too.

The most obvious way 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 under the gums, you may not be able to find them. If you feel intense pain in any of the locations where a third molar would be set, this could be an indicator that a wisdom tooth is pushing through. This feeling often manifests as a dull throb.

Dr. Spear and the Brent A. Spear, DDS staff are here to assist you! Phone their Fort Worth, Texas, location at 817.920.1488 to schedule your next checkup. We’ll work with you to give you the help you deserve.
