Wisdom teeth

Located at the very back of the mouth, wisdom teeth require sufficient room in order to grow out properly. While not everyone has wisdom teeth, the majority of people who do will have either partially impacted (visible) or fully impacted (below the gum line) wisdom teeth.
To avoid complications, most dentists opt to extract these teeth before their roots become fully developed. Your dental professional at Centre dentaire familial Ste-Dorothée will inform you if such an intervention is needed to avoid problems in the future.
