Most patients do not have enough room in the mouth to accommodate all wisdom teeth. It is important to check the position and development of third molars with the panoramic x-ray. Impacted wisdom teeth may lead to future infection and sometimes they may cause damage to the second molars. If they need to be extracted, the best age to do it is before age 25.
Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to infection and sometimes tooth decay in second molars as well as severe bone loss.
