what are wisdom teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to make their appearance in our mouths. Typically, they start to come in when we're between 17 and 25, a phase referred to as the "age of wisdom", hence their name. However, space in our mouths can be limited, and sometimes, not all the wisdom teeth have enough room to break through the gums fully. In fact, you may have none, or more than 4 wisdom teeth. Furthermore, their position in the back of the mouth makes them the most difficult teeth to clean. This is essential knowledge because understanding your wisdom teeth can help you manage their impact on your overall dental health.

How does wisdom tooth removal work?

We'll first have to create an opening into the area where your wisdom tooth is lodged. That's done by gently cutting the gum tissue covering the tooth. Once the tooth is exposed, we extract it—sometimes in pieces if it's easier than getting it out whole. It might sound frightening, but rest assured, we'll do our utmost to ensure your comfort throughout this necessary procedure. And remember, after it's done, you're free of a potentially troublesome tooth. Now, don't worry about it too much - focus on the relief you'll feel post-surgery. Any questions? You're not alone in this, we're here to help.
