Wisdom teeth also called as third molars, are the final set of teeth that grow. It usually happens between the ages of 17 to 25. If a wisdom tooth is completely buried or unable to erupt correctly, then it becomes impacted and leads to several dental problems.

A lot of debates revolve around the fact whether the wisdom teeth should be removed or not. However, if your wisdom tooth does not cause any problem, you should not worry about having them removed. But if it is painful or if it causes damage to nearby teeth or the jawbone, it should be taken out.

Impacted wisdom teeth:

When a wisdom tooth does not emerge out into your mouth to a functional position within the expected time of the eruption, it is termed as impacted wisdom teeth. It is impacted due to lack of space in the jaw-line and gets stuck in the jaw at different angles. The wisdom teeth removal cost in Sydney is determined based on the type of impaction.

Damage to nearby teeth: The third molars can push your other nearby teeth, causing pain and bite problems.

Cavities: Swollen and bleeding gums can create pockets between a tooth which helps the growth of bacteria and leads to cavities.

Cyst: When a wisdom tooth becomes impacted, and if it is not removed, it can lead to tiny cysts in your jawbone, which can lead to joint pain and other problems related to TMJ.
