Wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure where one or more wisdom teeth are extracted.
A lot of people require wisdom teeth removal, whether it is for preventive reasons, or perhaps there is pain and infection. As your wisdom teeth are the final set of permanent teeth to develop, there is an increased chance that there won’t be enough room in your mouth for them to erupt correctly.
