Wisdom teeth are the very back set of molars that emerge as a young adult. And in most cases, there isn’t enough space in the jaw for them to come in.
Other times, wisdom teeth come in sideways or become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can be painful, develop infections, or may even damage the adjacent molars or their roots. At Westover Dentistry in Arlington, VA we typically recommend wisdom teeth removal in the teen years which often results in a faster recovery from surgery and can prevent dental issues that cause bigger problems as an adult.
