Wisdom teeth are the third molar teeth. These teeth are usually the last teeth to develop in your mouth, and usually come through in late teens or early twenties, or they may not come through at all, depending on the position of the wisdom teeth. Your dentist may advise you to remove your wisdom teeth in some circumstances such as when it is difficult to clean wisdom teeth, when there is pain in the wisdom teeth, and when there is absence of opposing wisdom teeth, and so on.

At Sydney Smiles Dental, we can assess your wisdom teeth on an OPG X-Ray or 3D Cone beam Scan and make a recommendation as to whether the wisdom teeth will successfully erupt into your mouth, or will require removal.
