Over the course of your lifetime, your mouth goes through several changes. At one point, your wisdom teeth make an appearance. These teeth are the third molars that come in at the back of your mouth, but dentists sometimes end up removing them. Watch this video to learn more about wisdom teeth.
When they come in properly and with enough space, wisdom teeth can be helpful for chewing. However, if your dentist tells you that your wisdom teeth are impacted, it means that they are stuck beneath the gum line or in your jaw. Problematic wisdom teeth can cause issues for your mouth, and your dentist may advise their removal.
