Wisdom Teeth Extraction


Third molar teeth, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, consist of the upper and lower third molars. They are called wisdom teeth because they usually grow in when a person is between age 17 and 25 or older—old enough to have supposedly gained some wisdom.

Wisdom teeth are commonly extracted when they affect other teeth, become painful, decayed or infected, or when they become impacted. Most adults have four wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have more or less.

A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to prevent restoration. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.
