Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth.  They are usually the last teeth to develop ad 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.

Although most people develop and grow 32 permanent adult teeth, many times their jaws are too small to accommodate the four wisdom teeth.  When inadequate space prevents the teeth from erupting they are called impacted wisdom teeth.  This indicates their inability to erupt into the proper position for chewing and cleaning.  

Call our office at (703)566-1990 to schedule your wisdom teeth consultation!
