Prevention and treatment
There is nothing a patient can do to influence the eruption of the wisdom teeth. Your dentist will usually wait until the teeth have erupted or partially erupted before a decision on treatment is made and executed. Wisdom teeth which are not prone to infection, or do not threaten the other teeth, are generally left alone and monitored. If problems arise, or infection reoccurs, the management stage has past and the dentist will usually recommend extraction.
