Wisdom Teeth • McKinney • Frisco

What are wisdom teeth?

Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.

Most young adults need an exam to see if their wisdom teeth will cause impaction or teeth crowding. Some may already be experiencing tooth pain. Early assessments can prevent complications later on.
