They may come in at an angle or only partially erupt, making them difficult to clean and prone to decay. Impacted wisdom teeth can also affect nearby teeth and cause cysts and tumors. Your dentist will likely recommend to remove them if this is the case with your mouth.
  • Dental implants - If you're looking to replace a missing tooth, you can opt for an implant. Implants require oral surgery in order to anchor the root in place.
  • Abnormal jaw growth - In some cases, the lower and upper jaws fail to grow evenly. Your dentist may recommend oral surgery to remove part of either jaw to make them more balanced.
