Symptoms of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

dentist in fairfield | fairfield county dentistWaiting for your wisdom teeth to come in? This dental milestone usually takes place between the ages of 17 and 21, but patients can have their wisdom teeth come in at almost any age. Unfortunately, while these are the last teeth to come in, they also cause the most problems. Wisdom teeth can erupt at weird angles or you may not have enough space in your mouth for them to come in. When this is the case, it is known as an “impacted wisdom tooth.”

So how do you know if your tooth will come in straight or be impacted? Here are a few signs and symptoms that you’ll want to look out for.
