What are Wisdom Teeth and Why Do You Need to Take Them Out

Related imageThe removal of wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, is among the most common procedures carried out in Singapore. Wisdom teeth are the 3rd, and final set of molars people grow in their late teens or early twenties. Sometimes they can be a valuable piece for the mouth when healthy and properly aligned, although many times they may appear misaligned – hence need removal. This poor alignment of wisdom teeth is the primary cause for their removal because they can crowd and easily damage other surrounding teeth. The jawbone and nerves are also at risk as well.
