The problem with wisdom teeth

October 9, 2019

The wisdom tooth (or 3rd molar) is usually the last tooth to erupt into the mouth, any time after 16 years of age.

Frequently there is not enough room to accommodate wisdom teeth and as such they do not come into the mouth normally. When this happens, the wisdom teeth are said to be ‘impacted’.

Wisdom teeth are usually either impacted forwards into the tooth in front, or backwards into the lower jaw bone.
