Wisdom tooth removal is a surgical procedure where your dentist extracts one to four permanent adult teeth that are located at the back of your mouth. These teeth generally cause complications when they begin to appear (erupt) in your mouth. When wisdom teeth grow at odd angles and cause issues they are referred to as impacted wisdom teeth.
