The wisdom teeth or "third molars" located in the back of your mouth and are usually the last teeth to develop. Their formation is usually complete sometime between the ages of 15 and 20. If there is not enough room in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to grow and become fully functional, the result can be impacted teeth. There are three different types of impactions including soft tissue impaction, partial bony compaction and complete bony impaction. These three types of impaction can cause infections, decay, root damage and/or cysts to occur and can result in symptoms such as headaches, earaches, tooth crowding and orthodontic relapse. To avoid these serious oral health problems, it is important for impacted wisdom teeth to be removed.
