Your wisdom teeth are the third set of molars and the last of your teeth to grow in. They normally start to grow in your teens, although they can come later for some people. If the wisdom teeth are crooked when they grow, they can only partially erupt or they can put your other teeth at risk of impaction. We check your wisdom teeth during dental examinations, and if we see that they are crooked we’ll recommend having them extracted.
How we extract wisdom teeth
Your wisdom teeth are surgically removed by your dentist or by an oral surgeon. To remove the teeth your dentist makes small incisions in your gums and removes the teeth through them. After each tooth is removed we close the incision with sutures.
