Wisdom Teeth 101
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that erupt in the back of the mouth on the upper and lower arch. They usually come in between the ages of 15 to 25. While some wisdom teeth erupt without causing any issues, it’s actually fairly common for wisdom teeth to not have enough room in the jaw or to erupt improperly.
