Wisdom teeth are the third molars and are usually the last four to emerge. This often happens between 16 and 25 years of age, although this may vary for some people.
Do wisdom teeth have to be removed?
Typically in the teens, dentists begin monitoring wisdom teeth to determine if they are emerging well or are likely to cause problems in the future. With the help of X-rays, they can identify if the molars have partially erupted or if they are impacted under the gums. They also evaluate the shape of the mouth and the position of teeth. If needed, they will determine if one, two or all wisdom teeth need to be extracted or if there will be no problem.
