You've probably heard of your friends and family extracting their wisdom tooth. Your dentist might have even recomended this procedure to you at some point. Have you ever wondered why?
For most people, their wisdom teeth tend to erupt at a region where there's a lack of space. These wisdom teeth are often misaligned or angled horizontally. When that happens, they are considered to be impacted. That leads to common symptoms like aching jaws, pain, headache, and swollen gums.
There are also other reasons why your dentist would recommend removing a tooth for the good of your dental health.
