Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the third molars of adult dentition. They only exist in permanent dentition, and they usually erupt at 18-21 years of age.

In certain situations, the extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary to alleviate pain and prevent potential dental problems.

Wisdom teeth pain arises when these molars start to erupt and exert pressure on the surrounding tissues and teeth. It can cause symptoms such as mild comfort to intense throbbing, jaw stiffness, and difficulty in opening the mouth.

In some patients, wisdom teeth may become impacted, unable to fully emerge into proper position due to its limited space. When this happens, it can lead to tooth decay, infections, or gum disease.
