Wisdom Teeth Removal

oral surgery los angelesWisdom teeth usually erupt in one’s late teens or mid twenties; this is considered the age of wisdom. They generally appear as the last teeth behind the upper and lower second molars. Described as a “vestigial trait” or function that is no longer relevant; wisdom teeth are more problematic than anything else.

Your mouth is made to accommodate 28 teeth, so when those extra third molars (wisdom teeth) arrive bacteria can get into the area around them, causing infection which leads to swelling, sometimes an unpleasant odor and pain which may affect the jawbones or neck.
