​Third molars are commonly called the wisdom teeth which are typically the last teeth to come in. Since they are the last to erupt, often there isn’t enough room for the wisdom teeth to grow in as they should. When there isn’t enough space for the wisdom teeth they may be unable to fully break through the gum tissues and jawbone or may grow in at an incorrect angle.

​Wisdom teeth that don't erupt as they should can lead to ​many dental problems, ​like:

  • Disturbing the natural tooth alignment
  • Damage to the neighboring teeth
  • Tooth decay
  • Infection and inflammation in the gums and other tissues
  • The formation of cysts
  • Damage to the jawbone
