Wisdom teeth are the last molars on each side of the jaws. They are also the last teeth to emerge, or erupt, usually when a person is between 16 and 20. Since wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to come in, or erupt, there is often not enough room left in your mouth to accommodate them. This can lead to wisdom teeth that are impacted, teeth that are trapped beneath the gum tissue by other teeth or bone. If teeth are impacted, swelling and tenderness may occur.
Periodontal treatment is performed by a qualified dentist or hygienist.

Checkups are also good opportunities for the dentist to identify problems before they get more serious. Plus, these appointments allow for instruction from the dentist and questions from the patient.
