Not Enough Room- Depending on the shape of your mouth and teeth alignment, you might not be able to keep your wisdom teeth because your mouth would be too crowded.
Pain- If your wisdom teeth have already grown in and are causing pain in your mouth, it might be time to have oral surgery to remove one or all of your wisdom teeth.
Odd Angle- Your wisdom teeth could be growing at an unusual angle and could affect your other teeth. Sometimes people’s wisdom teeth are angled in the direction of other teeth rather than breaking straight through the gums.
