If the wisdom teeth are inflamed or not positioned correctly, it can lead to several unpleasant complications. Often, removing them can be the only solution for patients.
Wisdom teeth often develop in an incorrect position, usually erupting in a lower position and pushing against the molars in front of them. These teeth emerge fully at the age of 18-24, and the final position does not change later. It is also possible that the wisdom teeth become trapped (impacted) so they are not able to break through the gum. As a result, purulent nodules may form and occasionally become inflamed. They often go unnoticed, however, other symptoms such as hair loss or redness of the skin may appear. The cause is revealed by screening examinations for nodules.
In terms of chewing, these teeth are completely unnecessary, so there is no need to replace them once they are removed. Normally, patients do not even notice the absence of these teeth. Wisdom teeth may be removed in two ways: it can be a “simple” or surgical removal.
