We've all heard of wisdom teeth, but many of us have no idea what they actually are or why so many people have them removed. Your wisdom teeth are the third set of molars in the back of your mouth (the ones closest to your throat). Most people have four of them (one on each corner of your jaw) but not everyone does. They usually tend to grow in between the ages of 17 and 25, but your dentist can spot them in an X-Ray before then.
Most people have room for a maximum of 28 teeth, meaning there's no room for those extra 4 to grow in. Sometimes people will feel the effects of their wisdom teeth even before they start erupting into the mouth (causing pressure or throbbing in the back of the jaw).
We are fully equipped to do any major dental procedures on location, including wisdom teeth. We even have laughing gas (we love to see you smile!).
