Location: Wisdom teeth are regular teeth-- they're just the ones in the back- the 3rd molars.

More difficult: Wisdom teeth are the ones on the back- 3rd molar. Due to the location- many time, it is not easy to remove them -especially if the teeth are not coming out properly as supposed to- then it will give a bit more difficulty in pulling them out.

Location/difficulty: Wisdom teeth are just teeth! there are times that they are very difficult to do and need to be surgical exposed to get them out. They have a higher risk of difficulty however erupted/partially erupted wisdom teeth in my experience have been easier than other molars.
