Wisdom Teeth

This is the generic term for the set of 3rd molars. These “wisdom teeth” may or may not have to be removed. Factors such as decay, inability to keep them clean or not enough room in the arch for them to erupt normally, can all be reasons for extraction of these teeth. Wisdom teeth that only partially emerge or come in crooked can also lead to painful crowding and disease.
