WHAT ARE WISDOM TEETH?
Wisdom teeth AKA '3rd molars' are the teeth that are behind the second molar. Most of the patients develop this later on in life, the reason as to why most people also know them as 'wiser teeth'. Do you need to remove them? In the majority of the cases yes. But there's a lot of things that come in play before that decisions can be made, for example (how much space do you have?, how close to the nerve they are?, the patients age, etc.) that's why it is important to have a consultation before any procedure can be performed. How much does it hurt after the extraction? As we all know each patient has a different pain tolerance, so painwise it varies from patient to patient. After surgery we always provide our patient (if medical history allows us) with pain medication and severe pain medications.
