Wisdom teeth extractions

Wisdom teeth are the third molars, and the last teeth to develop. In many cases these teeth remain trapped in the jawbone and gums, usually because there is not enough room for them to erupt. In these cases, wisdom teeth can do more harm than good. Food can become trapped causing caries to the tooth in front. Sadly the damage may have already occurred before you notice any pain or swelling.
