An impacted tooth can lead to an infection called pericoronitis. If untreated, this infection can spread to the throat or into the neck. Impacted teeth also can get cavities. An impacted tooth can push on the neighboring molar. This can lead to tooth movement, decay or gum disease. It also can change the way your teeth come together. Rarely, impacted teeth can cause cysts or other growths in the jaw.
