Third Molars, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, are the back teeth in the mouth. Third molars can be removed for various reasons including: disturbances in their eruption, food traps, pain, infection, decay, damage to adjacent teeth, and other reasons. Typically, the best time to have third molars removed is when the roots are not fully developed, around two-thirds root development. This commonly falls in a patients age group of 16-25. Wisdom teeth can be extracted under local anesthesia (previously referred to as Novacaine), Nitrous oxide (laughing gas), or IV sedation (moderate to deep sleep sedation).
