One of the most common treatments we offer at Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center is wisdom tooth removal. And this time of year, high school and college students tend to plan their third molar extraction to fit around school breaks, summer vacations, jobs/internships, or even to get in before they age-out of their parent’s insurance.
What Are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third and last set of molars to erupt in teens and young adults. Because of their location, partially and fully erupted wisdom teeth are more susceptible to frequent infections. Removal is typically the best solution to prevent the spread of disease or unwanted discomfort.
Most people have four wisdom teeth, but it’s not uncommon to have fewer or even extra teeth in those locations. And while most teens will start to notice their wisdom teeth coming in during high school, these molars often continue developing well into your late 20s.
