Wisdom tooth root. Close-up of the lower jaw showing a wisdom tooth root during the extraction of the tooth. 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.
