Wisdom teeth are four additional teeth located at the back of the mouth, two in the lower jaw and two in the upper part of the mouth. In most cases, wisdom teeth grow without any problems and do not require treatment. However, when wisdom teeth do not have enough space to grow, they can cause dental problems, including pain, swelling, infections, and damage to adjacent teeth.

Common symptoms associated with impacted wisdom teeth include jaw pain, swelling and redness of the gums, difficulty opening the mouth, difficulty chewing and swallowing, headache and earache, and bad breath.

In some cases, dentists recommend extracting wisdom teeth before they cause problems. The extraction is performed under local or general anesthesia and is a routine procedure in dentistry. After extraction, it is normal to experience some swelling and pain for several days, and painkillers and mouthwashes may be prescribed to help reduce discomfort.

In summary, while wisdom teeth can grow without any problems in many people, they can also cause dental complications that require treatment. If you experience pain or inflammation in the area of your wisdom teeth, it is important to seek dental attention to evaluate whether wisdom teeth extraction is necessary to avoid future complications.
