If they do not erupt till you are 25, wisdom teeth surgery is something that you should consider. Many of us do not have enough space in the jaw for these teeth and will eventually remove them. In short, we can say: “If you have an impacted tooth, you should remove it. Sooner – the better.”
We can help you determine whether you should worry about your wisdom teeth, which treatment you should take and what are the costs of the treatment. With the help of a local anesthetic you will see that the whole treatment about impacted teeth is much less dramatic than you might have heard from a friend.

No, if they shoot up and set in in the normal dental arch, they can be very useful. If you brush them regularly can last a lifetime.
What are impacted (ingrown) wisdom teeth?
Because spring up the last, often there is not enough room in the jaw for them, and they occur in the mouth only halfway or not at all. These are called impacted teeth.
