If the teeth impacted, infection, cavities, overcrowding and periodontal disease are more likely to occur. The reason behind this is if wisdom teeth erupt after the orthodontic treatment, it will affect and undo the smile and teeth alignment that the braces helped to create.
In other cases, where there space in the jaw, these third molars act as an anchor for orthodontic treatment and left in place. However, one more problem that occurs involves the posterior teeth cracking and breaking. During and after orthodontic treatment, tightly secured appliances given that shift the teeth and keep them in place. As the wisdom teeth push against the teeth and because the teeth are not able to more due to orthodontic appliances, it can cause significant damage to surrounding teeth. As a result, these is possibility that the tooth may require toot canals, dental crowns and even extractions.
