There are many misconceptions about what exactly Wisdom Teeth are, and why and when they may need to be extracted or worked on. In this blog post, we will explain exactly what Wisdom Teeth are, and what in what situations they would need attention from your dentist.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third and last molars on each side of the upper and lower jaws. They are also the final teeth to erupt; they usually come in when a person is in their late teens or early twenties.

When should your Wisdom Teeth be looked at by your Dentist?

Wisdom teeth that only partially emerge or come in crooked can also lead to painful crowding and disease. As teeth removed before age 20 have less developed roots and fewer complications, the American Dental Association recommends that people between 16 and 19 have their wisdom teeth evaluated to see if they need to be removed.
