Generally, most adults will develop their third set of molars between ages 17 and 25.
These teeth are most commonly known as wisdom teeth.
They are named ‘wisdom teeth’ because they are the last teeth to emerge and come during early adulthood when you are presumably ‘wiser.’
Everything you need to know about wisdom teeth
Located at the back of the mouth, wisdom teeth are molars and are useful for chewing and grinding food.
However, some people do not ever get wisdom teeth, and many believe we no longer need wisdom teeth since our diet has evolved so that intense cutting of meat and hard vegetables is no longer necessary due to cooking and cutlery.
Many people suffer from dental anxiety, fearing potential pain or general discomfort with the idea of having dental tools in their mouth.
Often, a common cause of dental pain is erupting wisdom teeth.
The removal of the teeth will of course target this pain, but if you are afraid of the dentist it can make the task of having your wisdom teeth removed seem daunting.
At The Perfect Smile, we strive to create a comfortable, inviting and relaxing environment so that your treatment is as anxiety-free as possible.
