Impacted wisdom teeth refer to the third set of molars at the back of the mouth that don't have enough room to emerge or develop normally. Wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to come into the mouth. Most people have four wisdom teeth, one in each corner of the mouth — two on the top, two on the bottom.
Impaction occurs when a wisdom tooth comes through at an angle and pushes into the gum or the tooth beside it. This can happen for several reasons:
Insufficient Space – many people's jaws are too small for all 32 teeth — the 28 teeth that have room to grow by early adolescence and the four wisdom teeth.
Wisdom teeth can be angled towards or away from the second molars, or they can be angled inward or outward.
Sometimes, the wisdom tooth may partially emerge through the gum, leading to a flap of gum tissue growing over it. Food and germs can get trapped under that flap and cause the gum to become red, swollen, and painful. These are symptoms of infection.

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause various problems, such as pain, damage to other teeth, and other dental issues. However, because they're hard to clean, they may be more vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease than other teeth are.
The procedure can vary from a simple tooth extraction to a more complex surgical procedure, depending on the level of impaction and the tooth's position.
Types of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth are the last to erupt, and it happens that a tooth becomes either fully or partially trapped in the jawbone or gums. In this case, surgical intervention is required. And the impacted wisdom teeth cost of removal depends on the severity of the problem. So, there are four types of impactions we are dealing with:
- Mesial – the most common type when the tooth is located at an angle to the front of your mouth.
- Distal – the rarest type when the tooth is located at an angle to the back of your mouth.
- Horizontal – when the tooth is lying on the side, trapped in the gums.
- Vertical – when the tooth is located correctly but is still trapped in the gums.

Cost of Wisdom Teeth Removal
Trapped wisdom teeth may impact your overall well-being and lead to various oral problems. Thus, the pricing of wisdom teeth impacted removal is a good investment in strong health. So what price will you pay? In general, there are several factors that affect the cost of impacted wisdom teeth extractions, including the type of impaction and the amount of work done to remove a tooth. Thus, the pricing of simple tooth removals is different from that for trapped teeth extraction. However, the prices for both procedures are still affordable at our clinic. Moreover, you can reduce the pricing of the surgery with dental insurance – many plans cover up to 50% of the wisdom teeth impacted cost of extractions. If you are concerned about the covered pricing, discuss your options with the insurance agency. Anyway, it’s worth paying the price since wisdom teeth removal will prevent more costly problems in the future.
