Wisdom teeth won’t make you smarter or wiser. They’re called that because they usually come in when you’re older. These teeth are in the very back of your mouth. You get two on top and two on the bottom as part of a complete set of 32 adult teeth.
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that usually come in specifically between ages 16 and 24 Wisdom teeth also can be impacted — they are enclosed within the soft tissue and/or the jawbone or only partially break through or erupt through the gum. It’s important to note that wisdom teeth are not always troublesome. It is, however, important to learn as early as possible whether your wisdom teeth are coming in sideways or otherwise impacting your other teeth.
