Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars. The wisdom tooth refers to the last tooth in every arc of the jaw, which usually grows between the ages of 17 and 25, and dentists call it the third molar. Usually, everybody has two wisdom teeth in the upper jaw, and two wisdom teeth in the lower jaw.

Why might they need to be removed?

Sometimes wisdom teeth grow in and cause no problems. Often however the development of wisdom teeth can present a series of complications.Wisdom teeth can put pressure on the other teeth and damage them over time, and in some cases, the wisdom teeth can pressure the jawbone.

It is hard to brush wisdom teeth, and get decayed and damaged sooner than the other teeth, so it is better to be extracted. The symptoms of wisdom teeth are toothache earache, painful swallowing, painful lymphatic glands, bad breath, and limitation of opening the mouth.


Wisdom teeth don’t need to be removed unless they are causing pain,this is not entirely true. In most of the cases,extraction is not always required.Besides pain,many serious oral health problems such as tooth decay, gingivitis, infection, and other problems may arise especially in the early stages.The only way to accurately evaluate a wisdom tooth is with a dental examination and diagnostics.


  • If the tooth has caused tissue damage, it should be removed as soon as possible to avoid further harm.
  • In some cases, preventive extraction is recommended, because it is apparent that the tooth will get affected.
  • If the tooth is not removed, your dentist will closely monitor its development, in case extraction is needed later on.
