- Inflammation or Infection
Wisdom teeth often result in gum inflammation due to restricted space and partial impactions which leads to painful gum disease or other health issues. Inflammation is difficult to alleviate once it sets in and also is likely to spread quickly. If your tooth is partially impacted, then a gap between the tooth and the gum often becomes a breeding ground for bacteria, which can increase the chances of infection drastically.
Wisdom tooth usually tries to find a place in an already crowded area. Since it gets limited space to move into, the neighboring teeth are pushed aside, often leading to misalignment. It can disrupt the dental system and needless to say, ruin your straight smile.
There is also a chance of tumor or cyst formation in the jawbone if the wisdom tooth is not removed. This will further lead to joint pain which will require a specialized TMJ treatment.
