Why Get My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

If wisdom teeth erupt properly and grow in straight, they usually don’t need to be removed. Unfortunately, all too often, wisdom teeth can cause a host of oral problems, including pain, infection, tooth decay, misalignment, and even jaw and nerve damage. In fact, up to 85% of wisdom teeth will eventually need to be removed.

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Nicknamed “wisdom teeth” because they usually erupt between the ages of 17 and 25, wisdom teeth are a third set of molars at the back of your mouth.
