The wisdom teeth are the last molars to erupt in our mouth, and they're way in the back upper and lower corners. Most people don't have room for them, so when they start erupting, they're painful. It can make your other teeth crooked. If they're angled a certain way, that will give problems in the future.

And if they decay, they're very difficult to treat. So you're better off removing your wisdom teeth early on when you're younger. You heal faster than when you're 50 years old. The best solution is to remove them.
