Wisdom Teeth Pain – Is It Time for Extraction?

dca-blog_tooth-extraction-female-brunette

Any type of oral pain should be evaluated by a skilled, affordable dentist. It can originate from tooth decay, infection, damaged fillings, gum disease, or even teeth grinding. If you still have your wisdom teeth, there is yet another suspect. Your four wisdom teeth lie behind gum tissue until young adulthood. You have two in the top back corners of your mouth, and two in the bottom corners. If a wisdom tooth is erupting normally, your symptoms are temporary, and your dentist may just want to monitor its progress until it has grown in completely. However, if the tooth is trapped or impacted in your jaw and can’t erupt, the pain may be a sign that wisdom teeth extractions are necessary.

Wisdom Tooth Pain



Wisdom teeth pain is felt at the back of the mouth or jaw and may be accompanied by a sense of pressure or fullness. The area may be red, sore, or inflamed, and you may be able to see the tooth if it has begun to erupt through the gum tissue. Some people don’t have any noticeable discomfort. For others, pain can range from mild to intense. It may be constant, or you may only experience it when you chew food or touch the affected area. When a tooth is impacted or infected, additional symptoms like gum swelling, bad breath, and a bad taste when chewing food may be present. Many dentists believe that wisdom teeth extractions should be performed before severe pain and other symptoms become an issue.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions



Since many people’s wisdom teeth become impacted or grow in sideways, wisdom teeth extractions are common. In addition to relieving pain, extractions prevent future problems like shifting of other teeth, cysts, tumors, severe infection, and bone loss. To avoid surgical complications, it’s best to seek a qualified affordable dentist and have wisdom teeth removed before they can negatively affect your oral or general health.
