Named for their relatively late appearance in a person’s life (17-25 years old), wisdom teeth often develop unnoticed. However, each person is different, and some people’s wisdom teeth may impact, which means to develop sideways. When this happens, it may affect other teeth, causing a change in bite, crowding of teeth, cavities or gum problems. Wisdom tooth extraction is usually recommended by dental professionals in order to prevent the mentioned problems, and also because wisdom teeth are generally non-functioning components of the mouth. A wisdom tooth removal usually requires 2 visits: one visit for the removal of the tooth, and one courtesy check of the extraction site.
