Why do wisdom teeth become impacted?
Wisdom teeth are impacted because of the limited space in the mouth. They are impacted by your jaw, an adjacent tooth or excessive soft tissue. An impacted wisdom tooth can damage the adjacent teeth and therefore it needs to be removed as soon as possible. It can push against the root of the tooth and this can have irreversible impact and result in the need for further tooth extraction or will result in tooth loss. It is important that you have your wisdom teeth removed before it causes irreversible damage to the adjacent teeth so that you do not run the risk of losing more teeth than you need to. Impacted wisdom teeth can also cause bone loss depending on the position of the erupting teeth. By removing the wisdom tooth before it can cause severe damage to the bone this will be beneficial for you. Furthermore, partially erupted teeth are extremely hard to brush and floss and this results in the formation of cavities and tooth decay.
