Wisdom teeth usually emerge from the gum between the ages of 17 and 24. They are the last of the large grinding teeth at the back of the mouth. Wisdom teeth can often cause problems and require removal. Often there is not enough space for them to grow at the back of the mouth and they can come through impacted causing pain, swelling or infection.
Having impacted wisdom teeth surgically removed can help relieve your symptoms.
At the Octagon Dental Suite we have a visiting dentist with a special interest in Oral surgery that can remove impacted and troublesome wisdom teeth.
