Your average adult obtains three molars over time -- these are the back teeth. This third set of molars is known as the wisdom teeth
, which are the last set of molars to come in. Many times, these teeth do not grow and align properly within the mouth and can cause pain, discomfort, swelling and possible infection. To correct this problem, removal of the wisdom teeth is often recommended. Performing this removal sooner, rather than later, is important for reducing overall risk and minimizing discomfort. If you suspect your wisdom teeth may be growing in improperly, or are experiencing pain in the areas of the wisdom teeth, call Seitz Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
