Wisdom teeth are also known as your third molars. They usually do not have enough space to grow in correctly, since they are the last teeth to emerge. Because of this, the teeth can often come in at the wrong angle or become impacted, which is when the tooth fails to completely break through the gum tissue and jawbone. When a wisdom tooth does not erupt correctly, it can result in dental issues such as:
- Alignment and orthodontic treatment disruption
- Cyst formation
- Damaged adjacent teeth
- Inflamed and infected gums
- Decaying teeth
- Jawbone damage
