Wisdom teeth are the 3rd and final set of permanent adult teeth to come in. They appear far back in the mouth on the top and bottom behind the second set of molars. Wisdom teeth usually erupt sometime between your late teens and mid-twenties but there are exceptions. Some people get theirs sooner or later and yet others don’t have wisdom teeth at all. Sometimes wisdom teeth come in without causing any immediate problems but there are many reasons why these teeth should come out.

When should wisdom teeth be removed? :

  • They may be coming in crooked or become stuck against the neighbouring tooth.
  • There might not be enough room and crowding can be painful and cause complications.
  • In the wrong position, wisdom teeth can trap food or be impossible to clean, leading to decay.
  • Impacted wisdom teeth become infected much more easily.
