Impacted wisdom teeth can cause discomfort, inflammation, infection, and even decay as they emerge into the mouth, pushing against surrounding teeth. If left untreated, cysts may develop near the wisdom tooth / teeth, jeopardizing the health of the jaw bone and neighbouring teeth.

Wisdom teeth are the last to erupt through the gums. An impacted wisdom tooth is when there is not enough room for them to emerge normally. This will cause the tooth to move horizontal and
The key age range for this complication is 15-25 years old. If left untreated, this can cause infections and swelling of the gums due to trapped food debris and plaque. Damage to the other teeth is also a strong possibility in this scenario. If there are visible signs of an impacted wisdom tooth, then it is actually easier to treat than a tooth without these clear signs. It can be challenging to address a wisdom tooth that will most likely impact (due to observation) but there is not an obvious infection or disturbance.
