Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, get their name by being the last teeth to come in during young adulthood. As part of your general dental visit, our dentists at Southside Family Dental Brisbane and Toowoomba will examine you to determine if your wisdom teeth are healthy and properly positioned.

Important facts

  • Wisdom teeth usually erupt between 18-20 years of age.
  • Removal of wisdom teeth is very common procedure.
  • They are commonly associated with becoming impacted when the jaw is crowded and there is no space to erupt successfully.
  • It is best to have wisdom teeth removed while the patient is young, as in younger people the roots have not formed totally and the bone surrounding the tooth is softer.
