Wisdom Teeth

What are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are third molars that usually appear between the ages of 16 and 25 at the back of the mouth. They are commonly extracted when they affect other teeth - this is known as “impacted wisdom teeth”. Wisdom teeth can grow unnoticed until they start to cause issues in the mouth.

The Wisdom Tooth Surgical Procedure

Wisdom teeth are extracted either because they have already become impacted or because they are potentially problematic. The extraction of wisdom teeth can be a troublesome procedure. It should only be performed by a dentist with proper training and experience. He will recommend using local anesthesia, a mild sedative, or a general anesthesia.
