  • You have to visit a dentist and get an xray done. From xray you will come to know whether they are coming straight  and have space for their growth in jaw or not. From xray will come to know whether they are impacted and if impacted then whether they are soft tissue or bony. If that is the case then you have to go for surgical extraction. Wisdom tooth have now no role left in our mouth as they are no more used in mastication of food. So go ahead and schedule an appointment to see whether the wisdom tooth will be coming out normal and how to avoid complications. For more info on wisdom teeth you can read this
