The wisdom teeth are the last molars in each corner of the mouth. They usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Our ancestors had larger jaws with more teeth to grind down coarse plants, but with evolution jaws shrank and wisdom teeth sometimes have no room to grow. These teeth can push horizontally or also not pierce through the gums, resulting in several problems such as dental caries, tooth or gum infections, gingivitis or periodontal diseases. To avoid any future complications, our dentists may recommend extracting them.
