What Happens If I Don’t Remove Them?
If you need your wisdom teeth removed and you don’t remove them, a number of problems can occur. For one, the teeth can become infected. This can cause swelling, pain, and problems with chewing and swallowing.
When there isn’t enough room for your teeth to grow in, the teeth can damage adjacent teeth. The pressure from the wisdom teeth onto the adjacent molar can also begin to push all the teeth together which can result in crowding of all teeth.
Lastly, when you don’t remove wisdom teeth, they can also cause cysts in the jaw bone that can destroy the jawbone and damage surrounding teeth.
Basically, if you don’t extract your wisdom teeth when you need to, it can lead to pain, infection, and a multitude of consequential gum problems down the line.
