Principle of Wisdom Tooth Extraction in Djerba Tunisia by Dr. Ahlem Beltaief
Wisdom teeth, the third and final molars, once played a role in our ancestors' chewing of raw vegetables and meat. With evolution, the size of the skull has gradually increased, while that of the jaws has decreased.
Today, wisdom teeth persist in 90% of individuals, but dental arches are not always large enough to accommodate them.
Furthermore, eruption and positioning disorders can lead to alignment and overlapping problems of the anterior teeth, lesions of periodontal tissues, and roots of the 2nd molar, as well as cysts. In some cases, these indications may lead to preventive extraction of wisdom teeth.
