Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of the upper and lower normal adult mouth. Problems with wisdom teeth are quite common. In most cases, this is because the teeth come in too close to existing teeth, causing improper bites, crowding, and other problems.
Tthe lack of the four wisdom teeth does not affect your ability to properly bite down, speak or eat. Impacted wisdom teeth can be extremely painful, as well as harmful to adjacent teeth. Many people need to have their wisdom teeth extracted to avoid future problems.
