The wisdom tooth is the last tooth erupting in your jaws after the age of 18 years. This tooth is often “impacted” which means it fails to erupt properly in the jaw like other teeth. Moreover, it erupts in different directions and at an angle sometimes, damaging the other teeth. There are more chances of these teeth getting cavity and dental infection. Once infected this gives pain and swelling in the jaws. You need to get such a tooth removed to cure pain, swelling, and damage to the surrounding teeth. The procedure of removal of such a teeth is called ‘Wisdom Teeth Removal Surgery’.

Complications due to impacted wisdom teeth
Without sufficient space in the jaw, the wisdom teeth try to erupt by giving pressure to surrounding teeth and tissues. They damage the surrounding facial structure and usually erupt in different directions. Most of the time a wisdom tooth surgery is performed before age 20 as at this time the roots of a tooth are not fully formed and it is easy for surgical removal as well as for post-operative healing. At the latter ages, the tooth is formed completely roots are developed, curved, and make removal complicated.
