Wisdom teeth X-ray

X-rays of teeth before and after wisdom teeth removal

Wisdom teeth are the upper and lower third molars, located at the very back of the mouth. In some people, wisdom teeth are crowded and difficult to clean properly. They may also push against other teeth. In the "After" image, the wisdom teeth have been extracted (removed).
