When Wisdom Teeth Hurt, Extraction Brings Relief

dca-blog_tooth-extraction-female-brunette

Oral pain can indicate a serious condition and should not be ignored. Whether it is due to cavities, infection, broken fillings, teeth grinding, or gum disease, you should see an affordable dentist for treatment. If you are between the ages of 17 and 21, your pain could be related to your wisdom teeth. You have four wisdom teeth, which are located at the back of your mouth at the top and bottom. When erupting normally, your wisdom teeth will cause only temporary discomfort. When there’s not enough room for them to come in, and they become trapped or impacted inside your jaw, the best solution may be wisdom teeth extractions. Your dentist in Tampa can determine if your wisdom teeth are growing in properly, even if they haven’t yet emerged from your gums.

How to Recognize Wisdom Tooth Pain



Pain caused by wisdom teeth is felt at the back of the mouth or jaw. It may be accompanied by a sense of pressure or fullness, and the area may be red, sore, or inflamed. You may even be able to see the tooth in the mirror if it has already 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. If the 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.

Impaction and Pain Lead to Wisdom Tooth Extractions



Because many wisdom teeth grow in sideways or become impacted, wisdom teeth extractions are common. Besides relieving the 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.
