  Wisdom Tooth Extraction:
 
     
 
Wisdom teeth extraction is a common procedure that most people have the good fortune to experience. The wisdom teeth (the last of the molar teeth, which are the large grinding teeth at the back of the mouth) are usually the last teeth to emerge into the mouth usually after about 16 years of age. There is often not enough room to accommodate these wisdom teeth and this usually results in them coming into the mouth abnormally. When they don’t come through normally they may become crowded or crooked. When this happens, the wisdom teeth are said to be “impacted”. Impacted teeth can sometimes cause pain, swelling, infection, or damage to other teeth. In some cases, they can make it difficult to open the mouth. Because cramping makes it difficult to keep the teeth clean, there is also a high probability that bad breath and a bad taste in the mouth can set in. The surgical removal (extraction) of one or more wisdom teeth can relieve these problems. The extraction of wisdom teeth is a commonly performed and normally safe procedure. For most people the benefits of reduction of the pain, decay and infection far outweigh any disadvantages.
