The wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars to emerge, typically arriving between the late teens and early twenties. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth don’t always have enough jaw space to erupt properly. In fact, they are known for causing more harm than good. When the wisdom teeth attempt to grow in sideways or only partially erupt above the gumline, serious complications can occur. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to painful jaw cysts, infection and other issues. To avoid this, wisdom teeth removal is suggested.
