, or Third Molars, are usually the last teeth to develop and appear in the mouth. They are called “Wisdom Teeth
“? because they usually appear during a person’s late teens or early twenties, which has been called the “age of wisdom
“?. The normal position for developing wisdom teeth
is behind the upper and lower second molars. However, oftentimes the mouth does NOT have enough room for these extra teeth and they become impacted
. This can lead to very serious dental health and medical problems such as pain, infection, crowding of teeth, cyst development, loss of other teeth, or development of pathologies that could lead to more serious surgery. In fact, for nine out of ten people, at least one wisdom tooth remains under the gum tissue due to lack of space in the mouth. Proper treatment of wisdom teeth involves their removal using special surgical techniques appropriate for each individual case. Wisdom teeth
are best treated by a specialist, like an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon
