Have you wondered if you have wisdom teeth? And how will you understand when it’s right to extract them? There are some things you can monitor to tell if you have wisdom teeth, but to really recognize them, you should consult a medical professional like Dr. Preston Hansen. Try a couple of these at-home identification methods, and get in contact with us if you find any problems. We’ve been identifying wisdom teeth for a long time now, and we’d be thrilled to help you if you need to have your wisdom teeth removed too.

The most obvious method to find out if you have wisdom teeth is to look for a third molar in any of the spots where molars are situated. However, because wisdom teeth can be impacted (hidden) under the gums, you may not be able to view them. If you feel intense pain in any of the spots where a third molar would be placed, this could be an indicator that a wisdom tooth is pushing through. This feeling normally manifests as a throb.
