Wisdom teeth typically start growing in when a child enters their later teenage years. These teeth aren’t necessary for chewing function and can cause a lot more harm than good. To prevent overcrowding of the mouth (which can lead to greater complications) it’s recommended to have the wisdom teeth removed as soon as possible.
Letting wisdom teeth grow in can cause a variety of problems. Sometimes the teeth grow in sideways, causing a compaction or a partial eruption which allows bacteria to get into the gum tissue. They can also push existing teeth together, making them crooked and wearing down the enamel quickly.
