They are also called wisdom teeth, as they are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth and usually erupt between the ages of 16 and 20.

The bone surrounding the tooth is removed with the help of surgical instruments and the wisdom tooth is extracted. After the operation is over, stitches are placed on the operation area. Stitches are removed between 7 and 10 days.

  • If you smoke, you should not smoke for the first 24 hours. Smoking can cause bleeding in the treated area.
