The Importance of Wisdom Teeth Removal
There’s simply not enough room in your jaw for your wisdom teeth to erupt without pain and discomfort. If they do begin to erupt without removal, they’ll only be able to come out about halfway. This makes them impossible to clean properly and can lead to serious oral health issues. Getting rid of your wisdom teeth as soon as possible can save you a lot of issues later on in life.

How Old Should You Be To Remove Your Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth typically begin to erupt in your late teens or early twenties. However, this timing is going to be different for everyone and it all depends on your specific situation. Other oral health issues may postpone the process or speed it up. Consult with a professional to find out if right now is the time for you to have your wisdom teeth removed.

The Issues of Erupting Wisdom Teeth
Your mouth doesn’t have enough room for your wisdom teeth. They never grow in at the right angle and will cause serious issues in the future.
Your wisdom teeth can grow in:
at an angle towards another tooth
at an angle toward the back of the mouth
at a right angle to the other teeth
straight up or down but stay trapped within the jawbone
