The last teeth or the third molars that erupt within the mouth, at approximately 17 to 19 years of age is the wisdom teeth. Some might get it early or late as well. If they get appropriately aligned and gum tissue is healthy, then the wisdom teeth don’t need to be removed. But unfortunately, this doesn’t gradually happen. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are unable to erupt within the mouth properly.
Symptoms for the impacted wisdom teeth
The wisdom teeth due to lack of eruption or partial eruption can produce various symptoms and issues that might require medical attention. It includes infection, neighboring bone, and soft tissue, agony and headaches, decay or cavities of a tooth, erosion into the second molars, shifting of adjacent teeth, bleeding of the gums, cyst formation surrounding the wisdom tooth, bone invading or encompassing adjacent teeth.
