Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars in the rear of your mouth; usually grow in the late teens or later. Generally there are four wisdom teeth; two in the upper jaw and two in the lower jaw. It is quite normal to have less than four wisdom teeth or none at all in some people.
Wisdom Teeth Problems
Due to lack of room in the jaw, they can be trapped in your jawbone or gums, which can be painful. You may find it challenging to reach your wisdom teeth for brushing and flossing. Food and bacteria can get stuck between the wisdom tooth and the adjacent tooth, leading to tooth decay and gum infections.
Wisdom teeth in the upper jaw can grow often slanted, rubbing against the cheek. This may cause mouth ulcers and chewing problems. Wisdom teeth if growing at the wrong angle, may press against the other teeth and affect your bite.
