Wisdom Teeth Extraction

In a majority of patients, there are four wisdom teeth that are present. Many times, however, wisdom teeth do not have enough room to grow in properly and can cause problems for people. These erupting wisdom teeth can grow at various angles in the jaw, sometimes causing severe pain. Wisdom teeth that aren't able to emerge properly can become impacted or trapped within the jaw causing someone to feel pressure building up.

To prevent an impacted tooth, dentists often recommend removing the wisdom teeth before they emerge or grow too large. Many dentists believe it's better to remove the teeth when someone is younger and more likely to recover faster from surgery. This is why many teenagers or young adults have their wisdom teeth extracted before the teeth cause problems and become more firmly rooted in the jaw.
