Wisdom teeth removal
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to break through the gum or “erupt” at the back of your mouth. Wisdom teeth usually appear between the age of 17 and 25, a period of time which is referred to as the “Age of Wisdom”. There are various reasons for which your dentist and/or oral and maxillofacial surgeon may recommend that your wisdom teeth be removed such as in the case of Impacted wisdom teeth.
“Third molar surgery (wisdom teeth removal) can help prevent later problems in the mouth and teeth.” (AAOMS)
