WHAT ARE WISDOM TEETH?
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars, the last teeth in the mouth. “Wisdom teeth” are called that because they are the last permanent teeth to erupt in the mouth, and it happens in early adulthood as you become “wise.” The average age for wisdom teeth to appear is between 17 and 25. Wisdom teeth actually start to form under the gums around age 7 and can be seen on X-rays usually at around 12.
