Wisdom teeth are the large teeth in the very back of your mouth that grow in during your late teens or early twenties. Not everyone gets wisdom teeth, but most people will get four in total. Sometimes wisdom teeth grow in straight, but more often than not, they can cause problems. Your dentist might recommend removing wisdom teeth if they are decayed, or are causing pain, infection, or crowding. Recovery from wisdom teeth extraction usually takes about 4 to 7 days. If the tooth is under the gum, then healing may take longer. We can help you decide if wisdom teeth removal is something you or your loved one should have done. It is best to do so sooner rather than later, before any problems arise. While it is best to remove wisdom teeth before their roots are fully developed, they can also be removed safely later in adulthood.
