Symptoms Indicating the Need for Wisdom Tooth Extraction

dca-blog_tooth-extraction-female-patient

Third molars or wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to erupt. Unlike other teeth, these grow later in life; they often show up when you are in your late teens. In some cases, they may be healthy and erupt normally. However, they may still be especially vulnerable to tooth decay. In other cases, wisdom teeth grow in sideways and become trapped or impacted beneath gum and bone. When this happens, they can cause tooth misalignment and affect your general oral health. Wisdom tooth extraction is usually the best solution.

Symptoms of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

When 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:

  • Mouth pain or soreness around the affected tooth
  • Gum inflammation, redness, or tenderness
  • Bleeding gums
  • Unexplained jaw swelling
  • Halitosis or unpleasant taste in the mouth
  • Unexplained headache

When to Visit Your Dentist in Tampa

It is generally easier to remove wisdom teeth in younger patients because 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 immediately if you experience unusual symptoms such as pain or swelling.
