It is the most common problem that people face when they do not remove the wisdom tooth. If the gums do not have enough space for the eruption of the wisdom tooth, infection develops in the surrounding tissues. This results in pain, swelling, and other dental problems.
An impacted wisdom tooth may also develop fluid-filled cyst inside the jaw bone. These cysts can spread to the surrounding jaw bone and teeth. Without removing wisdom teeth, the treatment of the cysts can become difficult. Tumors can also form if an impacted wisdom tooth is not removed.
