What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the third molars. Normally, people have three permanent molars that develop in each quadrant of the mouth: upper, lower, right and left. The first molars usually grow into the mouth at around six years of age. The second molars grow in at around age 12. The third molars usually will try to grow in at around age 15 to 21 years. Since that is considered to be the age when people become wiser, third molars gained the nickname wisdom teeth.

Actually, they are no different from any other tooth, except that they are the last teeth to erupt, or grow into the mouth. They are just as useful as any other tooth if they grow in properly, have a proper bite relationship and have healthy gum tissue around them. Unfortunately, this does not always happen

Wisdom Teeth Extraction Explained

Wisdom teeth extraction can be done for teeth that have erupted or for teeth that are impacted. Our oral surgeon or your dentist at Bassett Creek Dental will provide you with guidelines about what to do before and after your wisdom teeth removal. And while your friend or family member waits for you, they can enjoy a complimentary beverage, free Wi-Fi or one of our many entertainment options in our comfortable reception area.

At Bassett Creek Dental, we offer comprehensive family dental care, including wisdom teeth extraction. Please call our office at 763-546-1301 for an appointment.
