In brief: Gum tissue growth

Your gum tissue is thinly covering your wisdom teeth.
Every now and then it thins out to the point of exposing the tooth. Then, it grows back over. you can certainly have them extracted. In fact, it is probably the prudent thing to do. It is possible to develop a gum infection in the area if the situation continues.
