Teeth that don’t have enough room to erupt into the mouth or develop normally.
Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth.
If a wisdom tooth doesn’t have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, you’ll likely need to have it pulled. Wisdom tooth extraction may be done by a dentist or an oral surgeon.
Wisdom teeth are usually only removed if they cause problems, or are likely to in the future. There are no scientifically proven health benefits of pulling wisdom teeth that don’t cause any problems.
Wisdom teeth can come anytime between the ages of 17 and 25 and even well into your late 20s. You should+n't expect to see your wisdom teeth come past the age of 30, as this is highly uncommon.
