If you’ve had dental work done recently or are planning to have work done soon, you may be curious about issues that can arise during the recovery period. There are a few items to be aware of after having a dental treatment done, such as what to do if your mouth gets infected, how to handle any residual pain, and how long you should follow the post-treatment instructions your doctor or surgeon gave you.
Wisdom teeth are the molars in the far back of your mouth and usually emerge in late teens or early twenties. In the past, they were useful for our more basic diet of meat and hard foods, but now they serve little purpose. Wisdom tooth removal may seem daunting but it is a common procedure.
Have you ever had a serious dental emergency? We’re talking about more than just a chipped tooth or bleeding gums, however traumatic those may seem at the time.

Wisdom tooth removal is one of the most commonly performed dentistry procedures. Your wisdom teeth are four large molars that emerge at the very back corners of your mouth, and they will normally come through when you are between 18 and 25 (though they can appear earlier or later). Wisdom tooth removal may be recommended if the teeth they fail to come through in the proper way, or if they begin to cause problems. It is important to note that wisdom tooth removal may be necessary even if a tooth is not causing any pain, so the potential need for wisdom tooth removal is one of many reasons why you should regularly see your dentist for a check-up.
Wisdom teeth coming in and developing in your mouth is extremely common. Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth that grow into your mouth, generally between the ages of 17-25.
