Wisdom teeth are the set of teeth that appear between the ages of 18 and 24. For some, wisdom teeth grow a lot sooner. It has been assumed that these teeth were needed for our ancestors when they were consuming raw meat as a part of their diet.
When these teeth grow in, it can be quite painful. Many people decide to have their teeth removed instead of dealing with the uncomfortableness they cause. The procedure is normally done in a dentist office and the patient is given the anesthesia that’s best for them. Over the counter medicine is given to ease the pain once the teeth are removed.
