what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also common as third molars, are the last set of teeth we develop. Generally, they start showing up between the ages of 17 and 25, a period referred to as the "age of wisdom", hence the name. An oral surgeon often checks these new entrants in our mouth during regular check-ups. We know it could make you anxious, but rest assured, it's just a normal part of the process our bodies go through as we mature.
