Wisdom teeth are molars that typically come in during the late teenage years or early twenties. If they come in correctly, they can aid in chewing. But if they come in crooked, without enough space, or become impacted, problems may arise and extraction may be necessary. Watch this video from the American Dental Association to learn more.
