Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to come into the mouth, usually during adulthood. If you have space and your gums are healthy, they can erupt without needing attention.

However, wisdom teeth can become impacted or stuck under the gums and bone if there is not enough space. This can lead to pain, bleeding, swelling, infection and damage to your mouth.

A dentist can assess wisdom teeth before or after they erupt and consider the pros and cons of removing them. Removal can lead to temporary bruising, dry socket, and numbness. If the benefits outweigh the negatives, removal will be recommended.
