Wisdom teeth removal is not something that most people look forward too, and we have had extensive experience in assessing and dealing with wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth are the very back teeth on either side of the upper and lower jaws, and are more correctly described as the third molar teeth. They are the last teeth to erupt into the mouth, usually between the ages of 17 and 21.
It is quite common for there to be insufficient space in the jaws to allow wisdom teeth to take their correct position, and consequently they remain partly or completely below the surface of the gum. Sometimes they may be deeply buried inside the jawbone. Wisdom teeth, which have failed to develop into a normal position, are commonly referred to as being “impacted”. If it is necessary to have these teeth removed, the first step in the assessment process is a full mouth radiograph called an OPG (Orthopantomogram), followed by a consultation with your referring dentist to discuss this further, and provide you with the best course for dealing with these problems.
