Why do wisdom teeth need to be pulled out?

Wisdom teeth do not always require removal. Many people have wisdom teeth that have erupted normally and have not caused any problems. In some cases, however, wisdom teeth may be impacted. This means that there is not enough space in the jaw for the teeth to come in normally or to come in at all. Impacted wisdom teeth can become infected or interfere with other teeth. To prevent such problems impacted wisdom teeth are often removed.

What age do wisdom teeth grow into your mouth?

Wisdom teeth (permanent 3rd molars) most often make their appearance between the ages of 16 and 20. However, they can grow in much earlier, much later, or not at all. For many people, the jaws are too small to accommodate the 3rd molars, and they either become impacted (stuck in the bone) or they become infected and decayed. This why wisdom teeth are often removed.

Wisdom teeth get pulled out to prevent pain and discomfort.
