Wisdom teeth typically begin to grow in between the ages of 17 and 25 in most cases, but they can become problematic at any age if they are not removed. While it is more common for younger patients to require wisdom tooth extractions, adults of any age can begin to experience the symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth if they are not treated in a timely manner. As we age, any remaining wisdom teeth can become increasingly anchored in the jawbone and can be more difficult to extract in the future.
