Your wisdom teeth are the last of your adult teeth to develop and grow in. In most cases, these teeth begin to appear during teenage years or early adulthood and often come accompanied with pain and discomfort in the jaw. In most cases, there is not enough room in your jaw for all four of your wisdom teeth to grow in properly, causing them to become impacted and put a painful strain on your other teeth.
In many cases, your wisdom teeth can chip, crack, or damage the neighboring teeth or the root of the teeth which is also painful as they grow in. As your wisdom teeth grow in, they usually force your other teeth out of alignment, making it harder to brush and floss correctly and can lead to an increase in cavities and risk of gum disease. Furthermore, wisdom teeth below the surface can also lead to infections that can severely damage your oral health. That is why having them removed is always ideal to keep your oral health in tip-top shape.
