What Are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth are your third and final set of molars that erupt at the very back of your mouth. While they don’t actually bring you more wisdom, they are commonly known to bring many issues with them that can potentially harm your oral health. Wisdom teeth usually erupt between the ages of 15 to 25 and our team can even remove them before they hit the surface. We use X-ray imaging to see if patients have enough room for their wisdom teeth and if they look like they are going to grow in straight or at an angle. For example, if your wisdom teeth are crooked underneath the gums, they will most likely grow in that way and crowd your existing teeth.
