Tooth #1 is an upper right wisdom tooth or third molar. Most of us humans do not have enough room in our mouths for thirty two teeth. Many of my Palm Harbor dental patients have their third molars removed when they are in their late teens or twenties, usually while they are sedated.
I had my wisdom teeth removed while I was attending Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery. My son, Mathew, had his wisdom teeth removed this past summer at the age of 18. People have asked my “Why do we have Wisdom Teeth?”, I have not idea to tell you the truth. Does any one know?
