The third molars, which are more commonly known as the wisdom teeth, are the last teeth to erupt in your smile. For most people, the wisdom teeth grow in during the late teenage years or early 20s. Because these teeth are the last to come in, there is often not enough room for them to grow in properly. When there is not enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in as they should, these teeth may cause several complications, including:

  • Damage to the neighboring teeth
  • The formation of a cyst
  • Infection in the gum tissues
  • The wisdom teeth becoming impacted, or stuck in the gum tissues and bone
  • Damage to the jawbone
  • Periodontal disease
  • Disruption to the alignment of the teeth
