Wisdom teeth or third molars typically start to grow between the ages of 17 and 25, and oftentimes, these wisdom teeth do not fit into the mouth. Because of this, dental professionals recommend removing them as soon as possible in order to avoid potential dental problems and tooth decay. As they are the last teeth to fully mature, it is best to get them removed as soon as possible.

What's the definition of impacted wisdom teeth?
Impacted wisdom teeth are third molars that fail to break through the gum tissue or only partially emerge. This condition occurs when there is not enough space in the jaw for the tooth to grow. Impacted wisdom teeth can be painful and cause swelling, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth. They can also cause problems with chewing and can lead to gum disease if not removed.
How do you prepare for wisdom teeth extraction?
Before having your wisdom teeth removed, it is important to prepare for the procedure. Your dentist will likely provide you with pre-operative instructions, such as eating only light meals the night before and avoiding certain foods and drinks. You may also be instructed to take certain medications before the procedure. Additionally, you should plan to have someone drive you home after the surgery, as you will likely be drowsy and unable to drive on your own. Lastly, it is important to have a plan for the recovery period, such as acquiring the necessary pain medication and soft foods to eat while you heal.
