Wisdom Tooth Extractions

What are Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Wisdom teeth are the final set of molar teeth, and they appear in the back of the mouth.

We have four wisdom teeth and they break through the gum normally when the patient is 16-18 years old.

They usually don’t cause a problem, but they have to be removed from the mouth if they get infected, impacted, decayed or misaligned.

However, they do not have to be removed if they are healthy, fully erupted, able to be cleaned properly, and biting properly with their opposing teeth.
