Some conditions may require oral surgery, including impacted teeth.
The last set of teeth to develop are the Wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars. If the jaw is not big enough to permit these teeth to emerge from the gum line, then there can be issues. If one or more of these third molars fails to develop in proper alignment or fails to appear through the gum line fully, then they become “impacted” between the jawbone and the gum tissue. Impacted wisdom teeth can result in inflammation, discomfort, and infection of the gum tissue surrounding the wisdom teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth can produce permanent damage to nearby teeth, gums, and bone and can sometimes lead to the formation of cysts or tumors that can destroy sections of the jaw.
Cuspids and the bicuspids can become impacted and can produce the same kinds of predicaments related to impacted wisdom teeth.
