Due to the lack of space in the mouth, the third molars, also known as the wisdom teeth, tend to totally or partially appear into the mouth, possibly causing problems such as pain, inflammation, caries and resorption on the neighboring teeth. Their removal is usually recommended when there are recurrent infections, when it is difficult to keep them clean and free of plaque, or when they are damaging other teeth. Early detection of malposition and removal can avoid serious complications. If you have just had your wisdom teeth removed, see the post-operative instructions.
