The wisdom teeth removal in some cases is due to the jaw of adults is not big enough to accommodate all 32 teeth people usually have.

Potential problems caused by grown-in wisdom tooth include infections, which can happen on regular basis and cause great pain to the patient. Other reason why wisdom teeth can complicate a person’s life is crowding of teeth, which can result in severe malformations of the entire jaw.
Usually, this procedure may be performed by a regular dentist under local anesthesia. However, if more than one wisdom tooth is removed at one time or there is a higher risk of possible complications, it is recommended for the procedure to be performed by an oral surgeon. A person needs to be completely healthy when the procedure is performed in order to avoid infection in the mouth. Also, a general anesthesia may be recommended if all or several of person’s wisdom teeth are removed at the same time.
