They are the 3rd molars that erupt in the back of the jaws on both sides of the jaws, on average, between the ages of 18-25. It is also called the wisdom tooth.
In which cases should wisdom teeth be extracted?
Tooth Decay: Bacteria and food particles accumulate in the gap opened by the newly erupting tooth, threatening both the wisdom tooth and the adjacent molar.
Gum Disease (Pericoronitis): An infection occurs when bacteria and food residues are stored in the gums of a partially erupted wisdom tooth. The infection can spread to the cheek and neck with the help of lymph.
Tooth Pressure Pain: During the eruption of the wisdom teeth, a pressure applied to the neighboring teeth may occur due to the lack of space and pain may be felt in the tooth due to the compression. In some possible cases, this pressure can cause edema and swelling.
