The Consequences of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

woman at the dentist

Your wisdom teeth are the last to arrive in your mouth; they are the final four teeth to erupt after all of your adult teeth have already emerged. When your preexisting teeth do not leave enough room for them to come in normally, they are impacted. Keep reading to learn about the consequences of impacted wisdom teeth.

When your wisdom teeth try to grow into an already crowded mouth, they become impacted. This can lead to a multitude of complications. Other teeth may be damaged and you may experience pain. Sometimes their impact is not immediately noticeable; impacted wisdom teeth that do not damage other teeth or cause pain may still be difficult to properly maintain, and therefore they are more prone to gum disease and tooth decay. Talk to your dentist to find out if you have impacted wisdom teeth and if they should be removed.
