Though named wisdom teeth, it is often “unwise” to keep your third molars if they can cause you further harm. Although a select portion of the population can maintain their third molars, a large portion also requires their removal for the following reasons:
Deep decay not able to be restored.
Recurrent decay due to position of tooth preventing proper hygiene.
Impaction with exposure to your oral environment leading to.
Bone disease around the third molar or the 2nd molar next to it.
Decay on root of 2nd molar due to food impaction.
Infection or inflammation of the tissues around the third molar (pericoronitis) from chronic food impaction.
