SYMPTOMS OF AN IMPACTED WISDOM TOOTH

Not all cases of impacted wisdom teeth show symptoms. However, when you do experience pain from an impacted wisdom tooth, you should see your dentist because an impacted wisdom tooth can lead to other serious health concerns like infection.

  • Swollen gums
  • Tender gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Headaches
  • Pain in your jaw or the back of your mouth

MORE ABOUT AN IMPACTED WISDOM TOOTH

An impacted wisdom tooth is a wisdom tooth that tries to erupt but is blocked. As this happens, your wisdom tooth or the surrounding teeth may turn and move position in an attempt to make room for the wisdom tooth.

Possible Complications of an Impacted Wisdom Tooth:

  • Damage to the surrounding teeth: since the impacted wisdom teeth can cause the second molar to shift, it increases your risk for infection and causes misalignment of your teeth.
  • Infection: Impacted and partially impacted wisdom teeth are very difficult to clean, making them more susceptible to infection, gum disease, and decay.
  • Cysts: If the sac that the tooth is grown in fills with fluid, becomes a cyst, when the wisdom tooth becomes impacted, it can cause pain, damage to the surrounding teeth, and even nerve damage.

Restorative and Implant Dentistry recommend that your wisdom teeth are removed before they become a problem so that you can avoid the pain and complications that often accompany impacted wisdom teeth. Our Pompano Beach FL dentists will take X-rays of your teeth to monitor your wisdom teeth and watch for the signs of impaction, even if you are not experiencing any symptoms of an impacted wisdom tooth.
