Wisdom Teeth

Did you know that wisdom teeth get their name because they usually arrive between the ages of 17 and 25, once known as the age of wisdom?

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to appear in your mouth, and are often removed before they actually grow in.

You should visit your local Universal Dental Clinic to see if your child requires a tooth extraction for his or her wisdom teeth. Extractions remove a tooth from your mouth, and are most commonly required if your wisdom teeth will cause problems by coming in, or if one of your teeth is damaged beyond repair.
