Horizontal wisdom tooth surgery

In a situation where the tooth does not have enough space to come out of the gum and gets stuck under the gum, a hidden wisdom tooth is created. Gum disease, caries and other oral and dental problems can be mentioned among the hidden wisdom tooth problems. A horizontal wisdom tooth can cause damage to the adjacent teeth or can be prone to oral diseases.
