|Causes of Impacted Wisdom Teeth|
|The general causes and risk factors of impacted wisdom teeth consist of the following:|
- Wisdom teeth grow like your other teeth. But they take much more time to develop and are the last teeth to emerge.
- The cause may be overcrowding, frequently for the reason that the jaw is too small to fit the third set of molars.
- In addition, teeth may also become twisted, tilted, or displaced as they try to emerge, resulting in impacted teeth.
- Having a small jawbone may make you more disposed to having impacted wisdom teeth.
- Cysts and other benign (harmless) jaw tumors. These can result in bone destruction.
