Wisdom teeth are the last molar teeth to develop which usually grow at the very back of the upper and lower jaw bones, one at each back 'corner' of the mouth.
They usually appear when people are aged 18 to 28 years old, and they are called wisdom teeth because by that age people become 'more mature and wise'.
Frequently wisdom teeth erupt only partly or they don't erupt at all. They are then called impacted wisdom teeth and they are usually a cause of many problems that makes it necessary for them to be removed.
A general anaesthetic may be used, especially if more than one or all of your wisdom teeth will be removed at the same time. A general anesthetic prevents pain in the whole body and will cause you to sleep through the procedure.
