Wisdom teeth removal
The last teeth to erupt are the wisdom teeth within the mouth. If the alignments of the wisdom teeth are emerged properly without disturbing the adjacent teeth, then everything is normal like all other teeth. Sometimes, wisdom teeth may impact the adjacent teeth and do not emerge properly or emerge partially
The impacted wisdom tooth tries to find the path in many positions to emerge out completely, as it does not get the sufficient space to come out it causes damage to the adjacent tooth and also affect the natural alignment of teeth which results in pain and swelling.
Due to the partial eruption some space is created between the teeth which cause the food to get stuck making the way for the bacteria’s growth. There may be even chance of development of tumor or cysts around the impacted wisdom tooth which cause destruction or damage to the healthy jawbone
