What are wisdom teeth and when should they be removed?

Wisdom teeth are the four teeth that are formed the farthest back portion of the jaws. Basically, they are a third set of molars.

Usually, wisdom teeth begin to appear during a person's early 20s. However, many people choose to have their wisdom teeth surgically removed before they begin to break through. Others have their wisdom teeth pulled after they have already come in.
