Wisdom teeth are usually the last teeth to develop in the mouth.  Many times there is not room in the mouth for these molars to come through. They may remain below the gums-pressing on adjacent teeth, causing other teeth to shift.  They may cause root damage to adjacent teeth or develop cysts, if left in place.  Wisdom teeth that come through the gums are usually too far back to maintain proper oral hygiene, or only partially erupted.  For this reason,  it is usually recommended that Wisdom Teeth be removed in teens to early adulthood patients.

Consult with a doctor regarding your treatment and care.
