Wisdom teeth have no impact on your ability to chew food or to speak correctly. Wisdom teeth, located at the back of your mouth on the upper arch and lower jaw, don't always erupt correctly, may crowd adjacent teeth and can cause pain and discomfort. 

We invite you to book an exam if your wisdom teeth are causing problems. 

*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner
