What Are Wisdom Teeth And Why Do People Need To Get Them Removed?

Most people know of wisdom teeth as being the last third set of adult permanent teeth to erupt in the mouth. They may be found on the top and bottom of the mouth, far back below the second set of molars. Although there are few exceptions, wisdom teeth typically emerge between your late teens and mid-twenties. Others don’t have any wisdom teeth at all, while others acquire them sooner or later. Although there are numerous reasons why wisdom teeth should be removed, wisdom teeth may sometimes erupt without posing any immediate difficulties. On the other hand, wisdom teeth can cause various issues if they are left in the mouth.

When Should Someone Get Their Wisdom Teeth Taken Out?

  • When the wisdom tooth is crooked or has gotten caught up against a neighboring tooth.
  • When the wisdom tooth is affecting the space in the gums and crowding the rest of the teeth.
  • When the wisdom tooth is positioned incorrectly and is trapping food or is difficult to clean.
  • When the wisdom tooth is causing you pain or discomfort while eating or drinking.
