what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, often the last to develop in our mouths, are our third set of molars. Most of us have four - one in each corner of the mouth. Interestingly, they even have a name rooted in maturity, since they typically appear between the ages of 17 and 25, commonly referred to as the 'age of wisdom'. However, just like our unique fingerprints, you might find some folks who've more or fewer wisdom teeth. It's quite a dental health curiosity.

How do they remove wisdom teeth?

When it comes time to remove your wisdom teeth, we ensure your comfort first by administering a local anesthetic. This numbs the area around the wisdom teeth, so you won't feel pain during the procedure. In the removal process, we gently loosen each tooth before extracting it. However, if a tooth is impacted or difficult to reach, we may make a small incision in your gums or even break the tooth into smaller pieces to remove it more easily. This procedure, while it's a bit more involved, is still completely routine and nothing to worry about. In either case, we take every measure to make the process as smooth and pain-free as possible, so you'll be in good hands through the entire procedure.
