Most people require their wisdom teeth to be removed because they will shift the alignment of their other teeth, however if the wisdom teeth will not affect the other teeth they will not often be removed. Also 35% of the population will not develop wisdom teeth.

To prevent such problems impacted wisdom teeth are often removed.
