They are called Wisdom Teeth and they are not cute at all. Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties.
Sometimes these teeth can be a valuable asset to the mouth when healthy and properly aligned, but more often, they are misaligned and require removal.
When wisdom teeth are misaligned, they may position themselves horizontally, be angled toward or away from the second molars, or be angled inward or outward. Poor alignment of wisdom teeth can crowd or damage adjacent teeth, the jawbone, or nerves.
Yesterday afternoon, my dentist recommended the removal of three of my wisdom teeth. There is nothing worse then knowing that your wisdom teeth have to be removed, or else your smile will be affected for life.
