Wisdom Teeth Can Develop Poorly

Posted .

Not all wisdom teeth are grown the same way. Some wisdom teeth may never erupt. Do you know why? Find out in this post about wisdom teeth by continuing and reading on ahead. If you would like to have your wisdom teeth extracted, feel free to phone our office to set up you a consultation appointment with our doctor.

You may be aware of the term “impacted teeth.” Impacted pearly whites are teeth which are surrounded by soft tissues, also known as the gums within the mouth. Since human jaws are smaller than they were in the past, wisdom teeth typically don’t have enough room to evolve correctly. When they do advance, they sometimes do so crooked and improperly. In some cases, when the wisdom teeth come in partially but not totally, food debris can become lodged between the chompers and the gums, leading to infection and eventually periodontal disease. This is why doctors will recommend removing the wisdom teeth if they haven’t erupted all the way.
