Questions & Answers

Wisdom Teeth Removal

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third molars and the last teeth to erupt. They are nearest to your throat in the back of your mouth. It is common for them to erupt between the ages of 15 and 20.

Why is wisdom teeth removal necessary?

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come in, and there is often not enough space in the mouth for them to fit properly. This can cause crowding and misaligned teeth. It is common for wisdom teeth to become impacted, trapped and unable to erupt, causing a variety of oral health problems.

There are a few signs to watch out for when it comes time to have your wisdom teeth removed. Some of the symptoms are:

  • Jaw pain and tenderness
  • Swelling and redness in the gums
  • Discharge from abscess or infection
  • A visible tooth coming through in the back of your mouth
