Wisdom teeth typically erupt when people are in their late teens or early 20s. For most people, removing their third molars is the best way to avoid decades of oral health problems.

If your jaw isn’t big enough for your wisdom teeth to erupt, then they can become impacted. This can put pressure on your other teeth, push them out of position, and increase your risk of cavities and gum infections.

You or someone you love may benefit from having your wisdom teeth extracted.
