Wisdom teeth are the third molars and are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth, and they can cause some serious problems. In most cases, there is not enough room for them, so they can become impacted or stuck inside the jaw. In some people they cause pain, but in many cases they slowly and silently do damage and when symptoms finally show themselves some serious damage can already have been done.
It is difficult to clean partially erupted wisdom teeth, so what happens is that food particles can get stuck and bacteria can ensue which cause gum infection, and this can in turn lead to destruction of the jaw bone. The bacteria can also spread through the rest of the body, causing damage to organs. Infected wisdom teeth may also cause the decay of surrounding teeth and require them to be removed as well.
In short, you should always get your wisdom teeth checked, even if they are not presently causing any pain. In most cases they will need to be removed, and it is always best to have this done before they begin to cause trouble. However, not everyone is covered by insurance so if that is your situation you need to look at the practicalities of wisdom teeth removal without insurance.
