Everyday Habits That Can Ambush Your Teeth

You brush and floss twice a day, visit the dentist regularly and keep your dental hygiene appointments, what more can we ask of you? It’s not that we don’t appreciate that you are looking after your dental health, we just want you to know about some “teeth traps” that might be derailing all your good work.

Why Are They Called Wisdom Teeth?

Most of us have them, some of us keep them and some of us don’t. Wisdom teeth are your rearmost molars, on each side top and bottom. What do you know about them?

You may have heard the explanation that wisdom teeth come in when we are older and wiser rather than when we are young and foolish, hence the name. Actually, the origin of the name is a little more complicated.
