Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars in the rear of your mouth, and usually begin to grow during your late teens. Generally, there are four; two in the upper jaw and two in the lower jaw. It is also common to have less than four wisdom teeth or none at all in some people.
In other cases, wisdoms can grow out slanted and start rubbing against your cheek. This will cause mouth ulcers and chewing problems too.
You may also need your wisdom teeth removed to assist in moving your teeth during braces(orthodontics).
For those with difficult wisdom teeth, we are fortunate to have oral surgeons visiting every month for your convenience so you will not need to be referred outside of the practice.
And, if that is not enough, sedation can be provided to you if you wish. This will allow you to have those wisdom teeth removed while you are fast asleep. Learn more at Sedation.
