Wisdom teeth are the third molars and the last teeth situated in the very back of the jaw. In the past, when man mostly ate raw meat, they were relied on. But with evolution and by cooking the meat we consumed, our jaws became smaller. When they come out, usually between the ages of 16 and 19, wisdom teeth remain impacted or partially impacted in most individuals. They can cause a multitude of problems, such as:

The dentist won’t systematically extract a wisdom tooth. However, if it is considered problematic, the dentist will recommend an extraction as soon as possible, between the ages of 16 and 20. As the roots haven’t yet completely formed, the risk of complications is minimized. Additionally, the younger the patient, the faster they will recover after their surgery.

Dr. Marie-Ève Costisella will proceed with a thorough dental examination to better recommend a treatment plan adapted to your situation.
