Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. It is possible for them to erupt and become useful, healthy teeth, but usually they become impacted and need to be removed.

Wisdom teeth that have fully come through can function like any other teeth in your mouth. They have the same purpose as your other molar teeth, and have a large, flat surface that is used for chewing food.

Not everyone will get the usual number of four wisdom teeth. Some people will develop only a few, and some will get none at all. In rare cases, people can get many more than the usual number of wisdom teeth.
