Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars in the back of the mouth and usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25.
They may be removed for the following reasons:
- They are trapped in the jawbones or gums, which can be painful;
- They come in at the wrong angle and push the other teeth;
- The mouth isn’t big enough and the jaw has no room for an extra molar tooth;
- It is not possible to reach the wisdom teeth due to cavities, cystic structures or gum diseases
After a surgical procedure by an experienced dental surgeon, you will not feel severe pain, as you will be given an appropriate painkiller.
