What are Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that are found at the very back of the mouth. Unlike other 28 teeth, both primary and permanent which form prenatally as buds, wisdom teeth don’t erupt in the mouth until we become adults.
What is an impacted Wisdom Tooth?
An impacted wisdom tooth is the one that isn’t able to erupt through the gum line because it is being blocked by another tooth or set of teeth. When this happens, the patient has to face severe pain and discomfort due to the pressure they put on other teeth in their attempt to erupt.
This can also affect the alignment and symmetry of your teeth and make your teeth crooked. Impacted wisdom teeth are also harder to clean and are more susceptible to decay.
What are the Wisdom Tooth symptoms?
Pain at the back of the mouth, behind the molars.
Redness, tenderness and/or swelling around the site.
Tooth begins to erupt through the surface of the gums while trying to push the neighboring teeth away.
