Wisdom teeth are the back molars which erupt some time around late teens or early 20’s. Once a patient reaches mid-late teens, the presence and position of wisdom teeth needs to be assessed.
Wisdom teeth can cause various dental problems, including overcrowding of existing teeth and impaction. Impacted wisdom teeth may cause localised problems in the back of the mouth and ongoing changes to teeth.
