What are you aware of about wisdom teeth? Do you know about their other name? Do you have any? Find out about wisdom teeth by reading this information we’ve amassed, and note any extra questions you have concerning wisdom teeth and ask them on your next appointment in our office.

Wisdom teeth, also referred to as third molars, are any of the four third molars set in an adult set of teeth. Wisdom teeth make the last pearly whites in the dental arches, and a few people don’t have all four or even any of the wisdom teeth develop in their mouth. In rare cases, an individual can progress more than four wisdom teeth. Since wisdom teeth can become impacted under the gum tissue, they aren’t always noticeable, and people with them might not realize they have them; it might take a dental practitioner to evaluate whether or not you have wisdom teeth. If you do have wisdom teeth and they are hurting you, your dentist may recommend getting rid of them.
