No! You can have your wisdom teeth if they develop in the right position and do not cause any problem to the nearby teeth. However, wisdom teeth are usually removed, whether they cause a problem or not. Your dentist is the right person to determine whether you can have your wisdom teeth or not.

Why is wisdom teeth removal necessary?

An adult has 32 teeth, including wisdom teeth. But, most adult’s mouth can only accommodate 28 teeth. For some, all four wisdom teeth may erupt in a straight and comfortable position, generating no discomfort and posing no threat to surrounding teeth. However, it doesn’t happen the same way for some individuals. Often, wisdom teeth have only a little room to erupt on the jawline and fail to grow in at a proper angle and get trapped under the gum. This condition is referred to impaction. An impacted wisdom tooth can push surrounding teeth out of place and lead to a lot of dental problems, including pain and discomfort. This is why wisdom teeth are removed even if they do not cause any trouble.

The wisdom teeth Sydney may grow at an angle toward the second molar, the back of the mouth, grow straight or down but trapped in the gum and right angle to the nearby teeth.
