Wisdom teeth often fail to erupt and become impacted, causing infection and possible damage to adjacent teeth and bone. This is usually a problem for young adults, but adults of any age may experience problems from impacted wisdom teeth.
It’s best to remove wisdom teeth in the teen years to prevent future problems and while there’s a lower risk of complications.
