The removal of wisdom teeth or third molars is one of the most common dental procedures carried out world wide.
The wisdom teeth grow at the corners of your jaws and usually and the last teeth to come in your mouth.Most people have four wisdom teeth - one in each corner.
Wisdom teeth usually grow through the gums during the late teens or early twenties. By this time, the other 28 adult teeth are usually in place, so there isn`t always enough room in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to grow properly.
Because of the lack of space, the wisdom teeth can sometime emerge at an angle or get stuck and only partially emerge. Wisdom teeth that grow like this are known as impacted and hence cause multiple problems like reduced mouth opening,pain and swelling,inability to eat and hence are advised to be removed surgically or non surgically.
