Wisdom tooth extraction is a dental surgical procedure that requires removal of one or more permanent wisdom teeth in both the upper and lower back part of our mouth. Also called third molars, these are usually the last set of teeth to develop in your mouth, and they generally appear between the age of 17 and 25.
Some dentists or surgeons would advise wisdom tooth extraction especially if they are impacted and have no room to grow. The procedure is generally performed by an Oral Surgeon under sedation. If there is an infection present this will need to be cleared up before extraction of the wisdom teeth.
