Wisdom teeth are also called third molars. Most people do not have room in their mouth for their wisdom teeth. The teeth become impacted when they cannot erupt due to the size of the jaw.
Problems can develop from an impacted tooth, such as infection, damage to the adjacent tooth, and cysts. X-rays can show the position of the third molars and help us predict if the wisdom teeth are going to cause trouble.
