Wisdom teeth are an inevitable discomfort for many individuals. These teeth are the last four teeth that emerge, typically emerging between the ages of 17 and 25. Even though they usually emerge at this time, they can nonetheless emerge earlier or later. Because the jawbone has fully developed in adults, it results in a distinct lack of space for these teeth to properly emerge.
The need to get them removed quickly is often paramount – if wisdom teeth are not able to emerge properly, they become impacted. This means that other teeth interfere with the wisdom teeth emerging, which can be very painful, and can also result in inflammation or infection in the gum area.
