Common dental problems associated with impacted wisdom teeth:

An impacted wisdom tooth can cause the following dental problems:

Damage to nearby teeth:

When the wisdom tooth erupts, it pushes against the second molar and it increases the risk of infection in that area. This pressure can also cause problems with the overcrowding of the other teeth, and require orthodontic treatment to straighten the misaligned teeth.

Cysts:

When an impacted wisdom tooth is left untreated, it develops a sac within the jawbone. The sac can be filled with fluids and forms a cyst or a tumour which can damage the jawbone, other nearby teeth and nerves. This complication leads to the removal of tissue and bone.

Tooth decay:

A partially impacted tooth leads to tooth decay. It occurs because wisdom teeth are harder to clean and food particles can get trapped between the gum and a partially erupted tooth.

Gum disease:

The difficulty in cleaning impacted, partially erupted wisdom teeth Sydney increase the risk of developing a painful, swollen gum condition called pericoronitis.

You can’t avoid the growth of wisdom teeth Sydney, but you can prevent other teeth from dental problems as mentioned above by extracting them.
