What are wisdom teeth?


Wisdom teeth are the molars in the very back of your jaw 

Most people have four wisdom teeth, located the furthest back in their jaw.  Another term for wisdom teeth is "third molars" as they are the third set of permanent molars in adults, typically coming in between ages 16-21 years.
