1. What is wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. Wisdom teeth break partially through the gums. Erupting wisdom teeth can grow at various angles in the jaw. Sometimes, Wisdom teeth don’t have room to grow properly and cause problems. Some they can be entrapped within the soft tissue and remain completely hidden. Or wisdom teeth that lean toward the second molars make those teeth more vulnerable to decay by entrapping plague and debris. That’s why dentists often recommend removing the wisdom teeth before they cause problems and become more firmly rooted in the jaw.

1) When you have lots of pain due to partially erupted teeth.
2) When wisdom tooth make the other molars vulnerable to decay.
3) When you have swollen gums around your wisdom teeth.
4) When teeth get crooked and you have lots of pain
5) When wisdom teeth causes the cystic in the jaw bone and makes your face asymmetrycal

 

3. Types of wisdom teeth

2)Second, When a wisdom tooth is underneath the gums and embedded near the nerve in the jawbone.
3)Wisdom teeth partially emerge through the gums. This increases the chance of a bacterial infection called pericoronitis. Unerupted wisdom teeth are expected to grow crooked and damage other teeth. A fluid-filled sac develops around an unerupted wisdom teeth, which can damage surrounding tissues or bone.
