Wisdom Teeth


What are they?

Dents de sagesse

Wisdom teeth are what the third molars are normally called. They usually appear at the beginning of adulthood (between 17 and 25 years old).

Most people have four wisdom teeth, though it is possible to have more, less, or none. Extra wisdom teeth are called supernumerary teeth.

Wisdom teeth extraction: Why?

Extraction des dents de sagesse

There are many reasons why wisdom teeth have to be removed. Following their eruption, there is often a lack of space in the mouth. This can deform the teeth, damage them or cause a wide range of problems like headaches, toothaches, and gum infection and inflammation.. Wisdom teeth are extracted to avoid all these unwanted complications, even though they do not always arise.
