The teeth that are referred to as "wisdom teeth" are teeth numbered, 1, 16, 17, and 32. They are located the furthest in the back of the mouth. However, do not get these confused with the molars. The wisdom teeth come in where the gums are located.

It is certain that humans get two full sets of teeth: "milk teeth" as toddlers and "adult teeth" in their late childhood. Most of the time 'wisdom teeth' are replaced by their adult counterparts - but because some wisdom teeth never break the gumline (referred to as impacted) it may appear as a second set when the milk set is pushed clear by the adult set.

Wisdom teeth start to erupt at about 18 years of age. Thus the term wisdom teeth.

Not necessarily. Teeth tend to become more crowed as we age, especially the lower front teeth. This happens in some people regardless of whether they have wisdom teeth or not. Therefore, removing the wisdom teeth, solely for the purpose of hoping to get naturally straighter teeth, won't work.

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.
