What is Wisdom Tooth Extraction?

If you have healthy gums and the wisdom teeth are well-aligned then you do not have to get them removed. Unfortunately, this doesn’t happen. Most people face dental problems when their wisdom teeth don’t have enough space to grow hence, they usually

  1. Grow sideways
  2. Partially emerge from the gum
  3. Remain trapped below the gum and the bone.
    So, the impacted teeth erupt successfully taking different positions in the bone. The poorly positioned impacted teeth can cause many problems and hence one needs to undergo wisdom tooth extraction. It is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth that help to relieve you from severe pain and infection.


Most problems associated with wisdom teeth can occur between the age of 15 to 25. People older than 30 can have problems with their wisdom teeth that require extraction. Here is a list of symptoms that you can face with your wisdom teeth.
