Wisdom teeth are the last to emerge and are prone to causing or developing issues. Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure that removes one or more wisdom teeth, which are the four permanent adult teeth at the top and bottom corners of your mouth.
If there isn’t enough room for wisdom teeth to come in, they become impacted under the gums. Wisdom teeth that have been impacted can cause a variety of issues, including damage to the surrounding dentition.
