Many times, when wisdom teeth start to come in, they will not have enough room to properly fit in the mouth. This can make it necessary for the wisdom teeth to be extracted to keep them from shifting the existing teeth out of place or becoming impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth only grow in partially and then cannot grow in anymore, causing infection and other complications. Wisdom teeth typically start to appear sometime in late teen years or early adulthood.
