Not all wisdom teeth are created equally. Many wisdom teeth never erupt. Do you understand why? Find out in this post about wisdom teeth by continuing and reading on ahead. If you would like to have your wisdom teeth removed, feel free to please contact our office to plan you a consultation appointment with our doctor.

You may be aware of the term “impacted teeth.” Impacted teeth are pearly whites that are covered by soft tissues, also known as the gums within the oral cavity. Since human jaws are smaller than they were in the past, wisdom teeth usually don’t have enough room to grow in properly. When they do erupt, they regularly do so crooked and unsuitable. In some cases, when the wisdom teeth come in partially but not entirely, food debris can become stuck in between the chompers and the gums, leading to infection and eventual gum disease. This is why many doctors will recommend extricating the wisdom teeth even if they haven’t erupted all the way.
