Q.

Wisdom Teeth

Is it true that wisdom teeth affect your health. I have one fully grown and one half grown (the others are starting to make an appearance) The only thing I know is that they could damage the other teeth if there is no space when coming out.

if the position of the wisdom teeth is such that it can cause food impaction, the adjacent teeth can become decayed.
They can also affect your healhtin that if impacted, they can cause an infection and pain.
