Are my wisdom teeth impacted and if so can they become unimpacted?

Hello, I’m a 16 year old male and recently received this x-ray of my teeth and the dentist said that he was concerned about my wisdom teeth being impacted. Would any dentists here consider these impacted and if so, can they become unimpacted? I’ve seen x-ray time-lapses where other people’s wisdom teeth look similar and have become unimpacted. Can this happen for me or am I screwed.

Dear Swcar,

your wisdom teeth are (most probably) not impacted. You are young and there is plenty of time for the teeth to find their way out.
