what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, our third set of molars, typically appear between the ages of 17 and 25. They're called "wisdom" teeth because they come in at an age when we're becoming adults and presumably, wiser. It's in our genes whether or not we develop wisdom teeth. So yes, you can thank - or blame - your ancestors for your wisdom teeth. However, not everyone gets them, and fewer people are being born with wisdom teeth in more recent generations.

How do they remove wisdom teeth?

By using local anesthesia, we ensure you're comfortable as we carefully cut into the gum tissue, revealing the wisdom tooth. Effort is then taken to gently remove it, sometimes requiring the tooth to be divided for smoother extraction. In general, the procedure may take around 45 minutes, though it varies based on individual complexities.

In the meantime, stick to prescribed medications, stay hydrated, and most importantly, avoid strenuous activity. Supporting your recovery is as important to us as it is to you, and while everyone's experience is unique, these tips should aid in a speedy recovery.
