Do Your Wisdom Teeth Need to be Removed?

dca-blog_tooth-extraction-female-patient

When your third molars erupt in your late teens or early twenties, they may grow in normally and not cause any obvious problems. However, if these last adult teeth grow in at an inappropriate angle, they may become trapped inside your jaw under bone and gum tissue. These impacted wisdom teeth can affect the surrounding teeth and cause infections or other problems within the jaw. Dentists and oral surgeons perform a wisdom tooth extraction to eliminate existing problems and prevent new ones from developing.

Signs of Impacted Wisdom Teeth: If wisdom teeth don’t grow in properly, they often cause noticeable symptoms. Although people with impacted teeth don’t always have symptoms, some dental professionals suggest that wisdom teeth removal is still indicated in order to prevent future problems. If your impacted wisdom tooth becomes infected or starts to affect your other teeth, you may experience one or more of the following:

  • Gum inflammation or tenderness
  • Bleeding gums
  • Unexplained jaw swelling
  • Soreness around the affected tooth or mouth pain
  • Bad breath or unpleasant taste in the mouth
  • Unexplained headache

Typically, it is easier to do a wisdom tooth removal in younger patients since their bones are more flexible and their nerve tissues are more resilient. For the best results, developing problems with wisdom teeth should be addressed before the age of 30. Be sure to keep your regularly scheduled dental exam and cleaning appointments. Routine dental x-rays can detect problems early, so your dentist can perform wisdom tooth removal before painful symptoms or serious complications develop.

Always see your dentist in Temple Terrace immediately if you experience unusual symptoms such as pain or swelling.
