Wisdom teeth are the third molars. As you develop from a child to an adult, you get your first molars around the age of 6, your second molars around the age of 12 and your third molars around the age of 18. Most wisdom teeth have enough room to accommodate one’s bite but sometimes, there is not enough room or the wisdom teeth come in at different angles, get impacted, have no room or there may be some eventual decay in the tooth. Dr. Pat Rabot, a board-certified oral surgeon at the North Scottsdale Center for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, treats facial fractures, does TMJ surgery, extractions, implants and correction of development deformities.
