During the teenage years or early twenties, wisdom teeth start emerging. For some people, wisdom teeth are never a problem because 35% of people never develop wisdom teeth. However, wisdom teeth present major issues to a person’s oral health if the wisdom teeth are misaligned. Misalignment can damage nearby teeth, the jawbone, or nerves. Impacted wisdom teeth, wisdom teeth that come in sideways, can majorly affect other teeth and the shape of a person’s smile. Wisdom teeth can lead to other problems down the road if not extracted.
