Wisdom Tooth Removal & Extractions for Impacted Teeth

Wisdom teeth are are also called the third molars. This set are the last teeth to develop and usually occur between the ages of 16 and 26. They get their peculiar name “wisdom teeth” as that age is the time of life for adolescents that has been called the “Age of Wisdom.”


Anthropologists noticed that early humans’ rough diet caused the excessive wear of their teeth. Regular floating of the teeth to compensate for this wear ensured that space was accessible for most wisdom teeth to erupt by adolescence. The modern diet, which is considerably softer, and the popularity of orthodontic tooth straightening processes create a more total dental arch, which fairly generally does not make room for the wisdom teeth to erupt, thus setting the stage for issues when the closing four molars enter the mouth.

Wisdom Teeth Removal in Thailand

By the age of 17 or 18, the typical adult has about 32 teeth. Usually there are 16 teeth on the top and 16 teeth on the underside. Each tooth in the human mouth has a very specific name and function. The teeth in the front of the mouth:

  • Incisors
  • Canines
  • Bicuspid teeth

These front teeth are ideal for grasping and biting down food into smaller bits. The back teeth are known as the molar teeth. For some the trouble begins when these teeth try to fit in an already full mouth. These wisdom teeth or “impact teeth” are the persons third set of molars. These teeth often collide with the last set of molars causing significant pain.

Why Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Extracted?

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to form within the mouth. When they align correctly and if the gum tissue is healthy, they will not need to be removed. Sadly, this doesn’t always usually occur. The extraction of wisdom teeth in Thailand becomes essential as the teeth may have started growing sideways, or partially emerged from the gingiva, or remain trapped beneath the gums and bone.
