Many people are unaware of why our wisdom teeth are so called. The answer is that they do not erupt in the mouth (erupt simply means grow and appear) until somewhere between the ages of 16 and 25. It is assumed that, by this age, we have learned some of life’s early lessons, and therefore gained some wisdom. (Get it?)
However, it is a fact that while a few people never have any trouble with their wisdom teeth, most of us do. They are the last molars to appear and they can cause several problems. Very often they do not have enough room to erupt fully or naturally and so they may only partially erupt. They can also grow sideways, or into other teeth and move them out of alignment. Partially erupted wisdom teeth will leave an opening around the teeth into which bacteria will find their way and cause an infection. This leads to soreness, swelling, pain, and illness.
Worse still, it is possible for cysts or tumors to form around partially erupted wisdom teeth which can result in destruction of the jawbone and other teeth. It follows that early removal of wisdom teeth can save a lot of trouble later on.
