What is Wisdom Tooth?

The wisdom tooth/teeth or third molars grow at the back of the gums. They are the last set of teeth that emerge when the other 28 adult permanent teeth have already emerged. Many people may also have four wisdom teeth with one in each corner. They usually grow through the gums during the latter part of an individual’s teenage years or in the early twenties.  They are also known as impacted teeth because they can sometimes emerge at an angle or they get stuck and emerge partially only due to lack of space.

Need to remove wisdom teeth

If the impacted teeth or wisdom teeth haven’t emerged fully through the gums, they can cause many dental problems.
·        Food particles can get trapped around the edge of the wisdom teeth and may result in growth of bacteria.
·        Due to lack of proper cleaning of teeth, it might also lead to the development of plaque and may cause gum disease, tooth decay or other problems.
If the wisdom teeth are not impacted and they do not cause any problems they need not be removed as they do not cause any complications. It is very important to see your dentist at the earliest if you’re experiencing discomfort or severe pain caused by the wisdom teeth.
