The most common reason for this is that there is not enough space in the dental arch for the wisdom tooth to erupt. Another cause can be the improper positioning of the tooth germ, the presence of obstacles on the path of eruption such as extra teeth, changes in the bone, thickening of the mucous membrane. In rare situations, unerupted wisdom teeth can be found as part of some generalized diseases and syndromes.
