Wisdom teeth removal is an extremely common dental procedure, as most people will need to have these “third molars” extracted at some point in their lives. That said, not everyone has to have their wisdom teeth removed, and those who do may not need all of them extracted. For those without enough space for these molars or who are already experiencing symptoms associated with their growth, removing them is fairly straightforward and can address potential complications that tend to develop.
For instance, wisdom teeth can align irregularly or even become stuck, a condition that is typically painful and can cause infection. By removing the teeth causing these issues, the ongoing complications or potential for some down the line are eliminated. Wisdom teeth removal is most often performed as people reach their late teenage years or early twenties, which is when this extra set of molars typically begins to show.
