Problems Arising When Wisdom Teeth Come In
Your wisdom teeth might break only halfway through your gums, creating a flap of gum tissue growth over your teeth. This flap is an open door for germs to get stuck in. The results are red, painful, and swollen gums. An infection may develop as a result.
You might get an infection, damaged bone and teeth, or a cyst if your wisdom teeth do not come through your gums at all
Wisdom teeth can grow in at odd angles with your top tooth looking backward, facing forward or sideways
Your mouth could be too tiny for your wisdom teeth making it difficult for them to come through your gums
