MOST OF US HAVE HEARD AT LEAST ONE TALE OF A WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTION and the recovery process. Wisdom teeth are different for everyone. Some people can end up with two, four, or even none at all. They can grow in perfectly straight, slightly crooked, or completely sideways under the gums. A lot of times, even if they grow in straight, our mouths doesn’t have quite enough room for those extra molars back there and they can cause the rest of your teeth to move out of place in compensation. They can also be quite hard to reach with a toothbrush and floss, resulting in infection and decay.
Consequently, most people need to get them removed at some point in their lives.
