what are wisdom teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth we develop, often appearing in our late teens to early twenties. They're called 'wisdom' teeth because they come through at a mature age, when we've supposedly gained wisdom. However, due to size and positioning, they can sometimes lead to complications, making their 'wisdom' moniker feel a bit ironic.

Is it necessary to remove wisdom tooth?

As we observe wisdom teeth surfacing, we might experience discomfort, swelling, jaw pain, or infection. However, it's not always necessary to remove them. On the other hand, if they've resulted in pain, issues with surrounding teeth, or potential for future problems, we might consider advanced surgical wisdom tooth removal in Tinley Park.
