Wisdom tooth?


Wisdom tooth.. just had my wisdom tooth removed two months ago by surgery of course.. and you know what.... from what I can say it is the most excruciating moment of my life back there in  that operation room...( though ive been numbed by the local anaesthetic) so what is widom tooth actually...?

The wisdom tooth also known as gigi bongsu as my mother said.... actually I do not know the exact name of wisdom tooth in malay as I studied this tooth in english.. so I just ask my mother... apa nama gigi yang paling ujung sekali tu....? and she said its gigi bongsu because it only erupted at the age of 18-25 years old... so in medicine the wisdom tooth is the 3rd molar.. the 3rd molar is the last teeth to be erupted in a human life.. its easy to find the 3rd molar as it is situated at the last position in your jaws... basically a normal person has about four wisdom tooth: 2 on the lower jaw (mandible) and the other 2 is on the upper jaw (maxilla)... but usually not all wisdom tooth will be erupted or even exist in many people... as I my case I only got 2 wisdom tooth on my mandible...
