There are multiple tumors that can occur with impacted wisdom teeth (third molars). These tumors can include dental cysts, ameloblastomas, myxoma, and odontogenic keratocyst (OKC). These tumors can lead to additional tooth loss. On occasions the tumor can cause the loss of multiple teeth. This can lead to significant dental bone grafting using the illiac crest.
Fortunately with the use of dental implants the lost teeth can be replaced.
If you still have your third molars, please consider seeing an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to have them evaluated.
