What are wisdom teeth?

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to develop, at the very back of our mouths, and usually come through between the ages of 17 and 23. The modern mouth is usually not large enough for the wisdom teeth to come through properly. When this happens the teeth are known as 'being impacted' which means that they are trapped by a tooth or bone from assuming a normal position in the mouth. A special x-ray known as an OPG (orthopantogram) takes an image of the jaws, all of the teeth, and shows exactly where the wisdom teeth are and what angle they are positioned in.
