Wisdom teeth are the molars and they are the last adult teeth to erupt. There remains little space for them to grow properly, thus resulting in an impacted teeth, the third molars. If these teeth develop with proper alignment, they cause no difficulties. On the contrary if they happen to be misaligned, which is seen in most cases they cause damage to surrounding teeth, gums, jawbone and nerves. Since they are hard to clean via brushing and flossing, these teeth are more likely to get damaged. Hence, to prevent future teeth and gum problems, it is essential to remove impacted wisdom teeth through surgery. Postponing the process of surgical extraction leads to further growth of tooth roots that wrap around sensitive facial nerves, thereby increasing the risk of complications.
