what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, often referred to as "third molars", are generally the last teeth to develop in our mouths. They're vestiges from our ancestors who had bigger jaws and needed tougher molars for coarse diets. Now, our smaller jaws typically don't have enough room for them and can compromise oral health. Not everyone has wisdom teeth, though - as a result of evolution, it's estimated around 45% of us don’t develop wisdom teeth at all.They're a little dental mystery.

Is wisdom tooth extraction a necessity?

Experiencing discomfort at the back of your mouth? It's likely wisdom teeth coming in, and symptoms often include swollen gums, painful jaw, and difficulty opening your mouth.

With advanced surgical wisdom tooth removal in Rochester, we ensure your comfort and peace during the procedure. There's no need for unneeded worry, we've got you covered.

How do they remove wisdom teeth?

To get those pesky wisdom teeth out, we make a small cut in your gum and, if need be, remove a bit of bone covering the tooth. Here's the creepy part—sometimes, we may even cut the tooth into smaller pieces to make it easier to take out. But don't fret. You're usually under sedation, so you won't feel a thing during the procedure. However, like any surgery, it's not without risks. You could have dry socket, that's when the protective blood clot in the hole where your tooth was disappears too soon. In other cases, you might face infection or damage to nearby teeth and nerves. But remember, these complications are rare, so don't lose sleep over it.
