The third molars located at the back of your upper and lower jaw line are commonly known as your wisdom teeth. They usually start to appear between the ages of 17-25 and are often the last teeth to come in. By the time they come in, there often isn’t enough space for them and they can become impacted. When this happens, you will need a dentist to remove them.
Extraction usually happens for one of two reasons: the teeth are already impacted before they come in or if leaving them in could lead to more serious health problems. During the wisdom teeth removal procedure, you will be sedated. One of our Burlington dentists will then open the gum covering the tooth, separate any connecting tissue and remove the tooth.
