What Are Impacted Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth are often the last teeth to break through the gums, typically when people are in their late teens or early twenties, and rarely have enough room to grow in properly. As such, these impacted wisdom teeth often grow in sideways—pushing against healthy teeth—and sometimes failing to erupt fully through the gums. This leads the to the aforementioned symptoms, along with tooth misalignment, and sometimes cysts and tumors.
Overall, impacted teeth can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort since they arrive later on in life, and can impact a person’s daily activities, including eating and speaking. This is why is it vital for those with impacted wisdom teeth to go to an experienced oral surgeon for their wisdom tooth removal in Omaha, NE.
