In addition to causing pain and discomfort, impacted wisdom teeth can cause a host of other issues. These problems can range from mild to severe. It’s important that you visit a dentist to rectify the issues before this damage progresses. The following are some of the possible complications that can arise with impacted wisdom teeth.

1 – Gum disease. Because wisdom teeth are located so far back in the mouth, they can be hard to get to while brushing. This can lead to bacteria building up around the tooth which can cause gum disease.

2 – Damage to teeth. If the wisdom teeth grow in sideways, they will push against the existing teeth. The grinding that occurs will cause damage to nearby teeth. Overcrowding will also most likely become an issue.

3 – Tooth decay. When a wisdom tooth is partially impacted, it is more vulnerable to decay.

4 – Cysts – The area where the wisdom tooth forms in the jaw can fill with fluid and form a cyst. If a cyst forms, a surgical procedure will be needed to remove it.
