Wisdom teeth are medically termed as third molars. They are the last teeth developed and are located at the back of the oral cavity. Many a time your dentist might recommend you to extract it, in case of an impacted third molar or severe pain, which can cause infections, damage to adjacent teeth, decay, etc. In order to maintain overall dental health, you might have to get the tooth extracted. The recovery period usually lasts for a few days. Doctors prescribe painkillers and other medications, if required. However, in some cases, the extraction can lead to some complications as well.
