Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth are the third and last molars on each side of the upper and lower jaws. They are also the final teeth to erupt. They usually come in when a person is in their late teens or early twenties. It is better to have wisdom tooth extraction evaluation at that age.

Wisdom teeth can only partially emerge or come in crooked. They can be enclosed within the soft tissue and/or the jawbone. Or they can only partially break through or erupt through the gum. This can also lead to painful crowding and disease. The partial eruption of the wisdom teeth allows an opening for bacteria to enter around the tooth and cause an infection. This can result in pain, swelling, jaw stiffness, and general illness. Partially erupted teeth are also more prone to tooth decay and gum disease. Their hard-to-reach location and awkward positioning makes brushing and flossing difficult. As wisdom tooth extraction before age 20 has fewer complications due to less developed root. Thus, the American Dental Association recommends that people between 16 and 19 have their wisdom teeth evaluated to see if they need to be removed.
