Also called third molars, wisdom teeth usually make their first appearance in young adults between the ages of 15 and 21. Because most mouths are too small for these four additional molars, an extraction (removal) procedure is often necessary. However, there can be many different reasons why wisdom teeth may need to be removed.

A few common reasons why wisdom teeth extractions may be necessary include:

  • Disease in the gums Infection
  • Crowding in the mouthn
  • Damage to nearby teeth
  • Decaying teeth
  • Cysts and Tumors
  • Pain

These are just some of the instances where wisdom tooth removal is needed. Sometimes wisdom teeth removal needs to be done within the context of a larger treatment plan.
