The major reason for the requirement of wisdom teeth removal turns out to be the lack of room in the dental area. Wisdom_teeth are the third molars which erupt after all of the teeth are fully erupted. After the eruption of second molars, most of the people find out that their mouths do not have enough of the room to welcome their wisdom teeth. As a result, the wisdom teeth start erupting in an awkward angle, causing problem for the neighboring teeth. In many situations, this eruption can result in misalignment of teeth in the mouth. Dentists analyze your oral cavity to check whether or not you need to get your wisdom teeth removed. In many situations, the dentist may suggest removal of wisdom teeth before they erupt. And in many situations, the removal may be necessary after the teeth are fully erupted.

Your dentist will tell whether your wisdom teeth are erupting vertically or in an angled position. This analysis is usually done with the help of dental x-rays.

You need to visit the dentist in order to know if you need your wisdom tooth pulled out. It is also important because you will be able to ask some questions from the dentist. Asking these questions will help you get prepared for the procedure and the complications involved in the procedure. These questions include:

•The number of wisdom teeth which you need removed from your oral cavity.
•Any general and specific risks involved in the procedure of wisdom teeth removal
•Everything involved in the recovery process after the tooth is pulled out.

Impacted wisdom teeth is a disorder where the third molars (wisdom teeth) are prevented from erupting into the mouth. This can be caused by a physical barrier, such as other teeth, or when the tooth is angled away from a vertical position. Completely unerupted wisdom teeth are usually asymptomatic, although they can sometimes develop cysts or neoplasms. Partially erupted wisdom teeth sometimes have a pathology associated with them, such as caries or pericoronitis.

Removal of impacted wisdom teeth is advised in the case of certain pathologies, such as nonrestorable caries or cysts.
