What are wisdom teeth?

-3. The molars are popularly known as wisdom teeth. Because these teeth usually last around the age of 20.

– Since the wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt, they usually start to appear in the mouth after the other teeth take their place in the jaw. For this reason, most of the time, these teeth cannot find a place for themselves in the mouth and they become what is called impacted teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth, especially in the lower jaw, are usually extracted with a minor surgery under local anesthesia. This situation is not much different from an average tooth extraction for an oral, dental and maxillofacial surgeon.

During the shooting, swelling may occur on the patient’s face as the bone is also intervened at some times. After the extraction, stitches are usually placed and it is recommended that these stitches be removed by the maxillofacial surgeon 10 days later.
