Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth that come into the mouth in the adult dentition. Usually, there are four of them located far behind in the ultimate position of your jawbones. For years now, they have been called wisdom teeth because they first appear during the wisdom age, between 17 and 25.
Having good oral health is essential at any stage of your life. However, there are some aspects to be aware of when taking care of the elderly. Just as with children, the elderly are a vulnerable population that requires our attention and special care. As your body grows, it starts developing some conditions and circumstances that weren’t there as young. Your tissues, cells, and systems decrease their effectiveness and response to threads. Thereby, it is easier to develop some diseases if the right measures are not taken into count.
