Problems Arising When Wisdom Teeth Come In
Wisdom teeth may only break part way through your gums causing a flap of gum tissue growth over these teeth where germs and food get stuck and create swollen, red and painful gums leading to infection.
Your wisdom teeth may not break through your gums at all occurring in an infection, damage to other bone and teeth or a cyst.
Wisdom teeth can come in at an inconveniently weird angle with the top tooth facing backward, forward or sideways.
Your mouth may be too small for your wisdom teeth and they will be unable to break through your gums.
