While sugar does contribute to the formation of cavities, it’s not the sugar itself that causes the problem. Rather, it’s the bacteria that eats the sugar.

Rinse and brush after meals to reduce acid and plaque buildup.
1) impaction - coming in at a funny angle or in an unexpected location. This poor positioning can cause pain and infection and would require extraction
2) Difficult to clean- As a result, can decay and infect nearby teeth and require extraction again;
3) Crowding adjacent teeth- undoing years of straight alignments created by braces.
For these reasons, dentists usually recommend removing wisdom teeth in young adults, before the teeth complicate treatments and extraction.
