What Are Wisdom Teeth?
In the very back of the mouth, a third set of molars called “wisdom teeth” typically come in between the ages of 17 and 25. The wisdom teeth got their catchy name because they herald the onset of adulthood. This last set of permanent teeth begins to grow as early as age 7, and we can usually spot them on X-rays in the pre-teen years.
