What's The Difference Between Wisdom Teeth And Molars?
Wisdom teeth are often called the third molars. The primary difference between molars and your third molars is that wisdom teeth are the last to develop and often do not grow in properly.
These are the last set of teeth to erupt, if they do at all. Many times, wisdom teeth never crown above the gumline, or do so in much later than other teeth, which is part of why adults and teens often require their removal.
Wisdom teeth can develop normally and become a healthy, functional part of your oral cavity. Other times, the teeth may become impacted, become infected, or cause other oral health issues.
