Wisdom teeth are your third molars and typically the last set of permanent teeth to emerge in the back corners of your mouth. It’s possible for some people to have fewer or even no wisdom teeth, however, most people have four, with one located in each quadrant of your mouth (upper right, upper left, lower right, lower left).
Wisdom teeth typically start to emerge between the ages of 17 and 25, although this timing can vary from person to person. Some individuals’ wisdom teeth will emerge fully and properly aligned with the rest of their teeth, while others may encounter various issues related to the growth and positioning of their wisdom teeth.
We often recommend that patients see us during their late-teen years for a wisdom teeth evaluation to determine the condition of their wisdom teeth. While some people go through life with no wisdom teeth complications, it’s a good idea to see a dental professional who can analyze your mouth and take steps to prevent oral health issues from occurring down the line.

Proper aftercare is extremely important following an extraction. To reduce the risk of infection and improve recovery:
Once the wound is fully healed, patients have a wide variety of tooth-replacement options to choose from, such as dental implants, bridges, or dentures.
