Even though wisdom teeth removal is a standard procedure, no one looks forward to experiencing it.  But what if your dentist breaks it to you that you need to have your wisdom teeth pulled out? Don’t worry! You will be fine after extracting your wisdom teeth.

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth also called as third molars are the last set of teeth to emerge. It usually erupts in the ages between 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth were helpful for our ancestors who ate diets that consisted of hard foods like sticks, plants and raw meat. As teeth fell out, the third molar was useful for them.

Nowadays, with advancements in oral health and softer diets, we don’t need these third molars, but they still grow in because our jaw size was reduced but not the size and number of teeth. So when there is no adequate space in the jaw-line, the wisdom teeth get trapped under the gum and become impacted.
