Two Telltale Signs that your Wisdom Teeth are Impacted

Deep in the depths of your mouth, where most likely no one besides maybe yourself and your dentist have seen, there is a group of teeth. These teeth are not the same as the other teeth. Some say that with their emergence comes a newly found knowledge of the world. Those who say that don't know what they're talking about. Because in reality, for the most part, they are nothing more than a burden. We're referring, of course, to your wisdom teeth. The third molars of the mouth that for so many people crowd the mouth and cause anywhere from uncomfortable to excruciating amounts of pain.

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause more than just discomfort. They can also cause gum disease and disrupt the development of the rest of the teeth in your mouth. They can even cause people to be more susceptible to tooth decay. But the more you know, the better off you'll be. Such is the case with wisdom teeth as much as it is with anything. That's why we're here to inform you on all of the most common signs that your wisdom teeth are impacted, so that you can address . . .
