Impacted Wisdom Teeth: Diagnosis and Treatment

“Wisdom teeth” are classified as molars. Molars are the chewing teeth found furthest in the back of the mouth. Most humans have first, second, and third molars.

A person’s third molars are their wisdom teeth. These teeth come in behind the 2nd molars (if there is necessary room for them and they are aligned properly) usually during a person’s late teens or early twenties. In most cultures, this is the ages of maturity, hence the term “wisdom.” Usually there are four wisdom teeth: upper left, upper right, lower left, and lower right.

In dental terminology an “impacted tooth” refers to a tooth that has failed to arise completely into its expected position. This unfortunate failure to erupt precisely may occur either because there is not space enough in the jaw for the tooth, or because the tooth’s angulation is improper. The impacted wisdom teeth often partially erupt at the later ages (45-55). Not only they are difficult to extract at that age, the healing time is much longer. Continue reading…
