Causes for Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth are common concerns for a vast majority of the population. In fact, over 85 percent of people need to have their wisdom teeth extracted at some time in their life. Wisdom teeth begin to grow in the back of our mouths around the age 18, but for the majority of people, there is not enough room for them to erupt properly. After extraction and a brief recovery period, most patients will not have to worry about their wisdom teeth affecting their oral health or jaw again.
