Positioned at the extreme back of your mouth, third molars also known as wisdom teeth erupt when you are in your late teens or early 20’s. These are the last set of teeth to come in your mouth in your entire lifetime. As these teeth get very less space to erupt and grow, these may become misaligned or impacted, leading to pain and infections for many people.

How Wisdom Tooth is removed?

After the procedure, you may feel pain, swelling and difficulty in swelling for two or three days. Depending on alignment and positioning of your third molar, you may take as long as 7-10 days to recover completely.
