Wisdom teeth are also known as third molars, they mostly come in between the ages of 17 and 25 and are more often, misaligned and require removal. Approximately 85 percent of people need to have their wisdom teeth extracted during their lifetime.
Getting your wisdom teeth extracted is a routine procedure, especially if done in your late teens or early twenties.
Reasons To Get Your Wisdom Teeth Removed:
What To Expect:
Wisdom teeth are the most commonly missing teeth in adult mouths and are definitely easier to remove when the patient is younger because their roots are not fully formed and the tissues are soft and flexible.
There are several ways to make sure you don’t experience pain during the procedure. Most of the time local anesthesia or your dentist would give you oral sedation or intravenous sedation. Your surgery should take 45 minutes or less. If the teeth are not impacted and there is no infection, the procedure would take 15 to 30 minutes to remove all four wisdom teeth.
