    Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. They grow, most of time, under the gum during people's teens years. Although most people have four wisdom teeth, it is possible to have more or fewer. Wisdom teeth present potential problems when they are misaligned. Poor alignment of wisdom teeth can crowd or damage adjacent teeth, the jawbone, or nerves. He or she may take an X-ray periodically to evaluate for the presence and alignment of your wisdom teeth. Your dentist may also decide to send you to an oral surgeon for further evaluation.
