Buried wisdom teeth (3rd molat tooth) surgery
The reason why molar tooth causes problems is that this tooth is no more needed genetically and our jaw gets smaller by time.
As jaws get smaller wisdom tooth can not find a place to come out . Pushing the one before it, wisdom tooth causes to crossing. Also because they are at the back and surrounding teeth gum do not have normal anotomical structure, they can get infection easily.
Entirely buried molar teeth do not cause problem in general. But they should be followed by Xray.
Entirely out wisdom teeth are difficult to brush because they are at the very back. They can cause crossing at the frontal teeth and also can cause periodental infection. It is recommended to pull out for patients who do not have teethcare necessarily.
