Wisdom teeth

Specialty of Oral & maxillofacial surgery

The wisdom tooth is the name with which the third molar is commonly known. This molar usually appears between the ages of 16 and 25. There may be up to four wisdom teeth, one for each buccal quadrant. Wisdom teeth often affect other teeth when growing as the mouth becomes crowded, causing severe pain. When this occurs the only current remedy is having the tooth removed.
