Wisdom Teeth Removal Applecross
The wisdom teeth are the third molar teeth. In most cases, they are the last teeth in the dental arch.
Wisdom teeth start to form around our preschool years and may come through the gum at any time from your late teens to early twenties. In some cases, they will never erupt through the gum at all.
Wisdom teeth can be clearly seen in a diagnostic OPG X-ray if they are have not erupted. In this OPG X-ray, it is easy to see the four upper and lower wisdom teeth on the outer edge of the jaw growing out of alignment to the other teeth.
