What are Wisdom Teeth or 3rd Molars?
Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.
Often, wisdom teeth can crowd other teeth, or create other impaction issues. Your dentist or an Oral Surgeon can examine your mouth and look at x-rays to determine if wisdom teeth removal is needed.
