Did you know that your wisdom teeth can force your jaw and teeth out of alignment as they try to come in? Yes, it’s true! For most people, there is not a lot of space in the back of the jaw for your wisdom teeth to grow in properly. For others, wisdom teeth can sometimes become impacted, causing extreme pain and other oral health problems.
