Wisdom Teeth | Palo Alto CA

What Are Wisdom Teeth?


Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom. 
Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars.

Wisdom teeth can cause complications such as tooth crowding, impaction, or infections. It is therefore important to have an exam and consult to diagnose the unique condition and discuss a treatment plan.
