Wisdom Teeth Directory

Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that most people get. When properly aligned, they are beneficial, but they often require extraction. Wisdom teeth are removed for several reasons.

Your dentist will use X-rays to determine if you have wisdom teeth that need to be removed.
