Danger of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Contributed by DentalROI

Wisdom Teeth RemovalAs far as oral health issues are concerned, impacted wisdom teeth are relatively common. An impacted wisdom tooth is one that does not enter the mouth correctly – and this is actually the case for the majority of wisdom teeth. In some cases, the tooth comes in at the wrong angle, meaning it can’t erupt through the gums properly. Or, the tooth will be angled correctly, but it will not have enough room in the mouth due to the existing teeth. Whatever the case, it is a good idea to speak to your dentist about the situation. While it is possible for impacted wisdom teeth to not create any symptoms, there will typically be some negative side effect produced by this condition.
