Studies from the AAOMS indicate that 90% of people with wisdom teeth will experience at least one impaction before they reach 25. Impacted third molars can grow horizontally beneath the gum line or diagonally after erupting, bumping into nearby molars and causing problematic shifts in alignment. Wisdom teeth are usually the last four teeth to break out of the gum line, appearing sometime between ages 16 and 25.
