Such malpositioning may also cause pain, swelling, bone loss and damage to adjacent teeth, among other concerns. Wisdom teeth typically begin the eruption phase in the mid-teen to early adult years. This is the most ideal time to perform wisdom teeth extractions, as patients in this age group tend to experience faster healing and recovery.
