Wisdom teeth should be extracted when they push and damage the 7th tooth while they grow, also when they develop a cyst or cause an infection, and wisdom teeth are removed if they're causing problems with prosthesis. Here's an interesting video about wisdom tooth extraction.

no it will make your teeths upsidedown and it will wisdom forever

I am 75 1/2 and had a wisdom tooth that was trying to come through and had to have it extracted. My dentist said he had a man last year who was in his eighties.

Do not smoke after having your wisdom teeth extracted. The sockets could become infected, and at the very least, it will slow the healing process.

I just had all of my wisdom teeth extracted with a class 3 underbite but it has not changed my profile at all.

Wisdom teeth are your third set of permanent molars, and they are the last to arrive - usually around age 18 (when you are an "adult"...hence "wisdom"). In a lot of people there isn't space for them to come into, so they get extracted. If they do come in, they are so far back that a lot of people get cavities in them because they are hard to clean.

They are located in the back of your teeth after the second molar being the third molar. Wisdom teeth start to grow out around the ages of 17 to 25 and are often extracted due to complications.

Not as far as i know. I had all 4 of wisdom teeth impacted and i wasnt having facial spasms. If your wisdom teeth are impacted, you need to get them extracted as soon as possible

$1400-$1500 depending on if you have good insurance

according to, it is perfectly fine!

No. The pain - and a whole lot of it - comes afterwards.

They need to be extracted, your jawline does not have enough room for your wisdom teeth and therefore behind your wisdom teeth, food is getting trapped and pus is oozing. Go to the dentist soon.

Sometimes when teeth are crowded, the wisdom teeth come after aging has caused teeth to narrow and make space, and then they come out! (Like my mum)

32 if she hasn't had any extracted. 28 if she's had her wisdom teeth out.

No. Wisdom teeth should only be taken out if they are a problem.

Theoretically, 32. But almost all adult human beings have their wisdom teeth - or at least some of them - extracted, reducing the number of total teeth accordingly (there are four wisdom teeth).

Eventually, yes. I probably wouldn't do it the same day.

You can eat prior to having a tooth extracted as long as you are only having a local anesthetic. Usually patients will opt for I.V. sedation for all four wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth begin to come in between the ages of 17 into the mid twenties. Many people must get their wisdom teeth removed due to lack of room in their mouth.

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.

not everyones wisdom teeth come in at age thirteen just like how some peoples teeth fall out before others

An adult that had they're wisdom teeth pulled or not come through then you have 32 teeth. But if you still have your wisdom teeth you have 36.

Most people say wisdom teeth come in when your 17-25 or 15-25 either one

It is one of the four teeth at the back of either side of the upper and lower jaw of a person. It is usually the last one to come out.A wisdom tooth, in humans, is any of the usually four third molars, including mandibular third molar and maxillary third molar. Wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Most adults have four wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have more, in which case they are called supernumerary teeth. Wisdom teeth commonly affect other teeth as they develop, becoming impacted or "coming in sideways". They are often extracted when this occurs. About 35% of the population does not develop wisdom teeth at all.

I just had my two remaining wisdom teeth extracted at a cost of $220 per tooth and a $65 consultation fee. That seemed excessive but I needed it done.
