Wisdom teeth are molar teeth that traditionally appear around 18 years, and sometimes there is no room in the jaw for them. When this happens, the wisdom teeth don’t have enough room and become stuck, or impacted. Impacted teeth often cause painful infections and can cause a lot of damage to the tooth in front of them.
Extraction is usually the solution to the problems caused by impacted wisdom teeth. Plan the extraction of impacted wisdom teeth for a time that is convenient to you, rather than have the surgery forced on you at a time when you would really prefer not to be swollen and sore.
