Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon Questions Wisdom Teeth

Why are my wisdom teeth growing sideways?

I am 19 years old and my wisdom teeth have started coming in. The left bottom wisdom tooth has started popping through and it looks like it's growing in sideways. What causes this?

This is due to the amount of space available for these teeth to grow in. Many people do not have adequate space for these teeth which leads to them growing in at funky angles. I would recommend seeing an oral surgeon for extraction to avoid trauma to additional teeth.
