Wisdom teeth are molars. They erupt in the back corners (top and bottom) of the mouth. Unfortunately, most people experience problems from wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth usually erupt too close to existing permanent teeth, causing crowding, improper bites, and other problems.
Impacted wisdom teeth cause issues. Impacted wisdom teeth can be very painful, as well as harmful to your oral health. Symptoms are easy to spot: pain, inflammation, and some kinds of infections.
Many people have their wisdom teeth extracted to avoid future serious problems. The lack of four wisdom teeth does not hamper the ability to properly bite down, speak or eat.
