Wisdom Teeth

Arctic Oral Surgery, Dr. Rios-Andersen, Anchorage & Eagle River AK

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.
