Wisdom tooth prepared for extraction. This lower wisdom tooth has been sawn to the roots for easier removal. Wisdom teeth are the third and last set of molars to emerge in the mouth. In many cases wisdom teeth are unable to emerge fully from the gum due to lack of available space. This may cause severe pain and usually results in their removal.
