The Trouble with Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are the four third molars located on the top and bottom gum line in the back of the mouth. These are the last teeth to come in, generally emerging between the ages of 17 and 25. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain and dental health challenges for many individuals, in which case, your dentist in Roswell may recommend a tooth extraction. For a few individuals, the wisdom teeth emerge without issue, but risk of disease, infection, and future complications remains high, leaving many experts to recommend wisdom teeth removal as a preventive measure. You and a qualified, affordable dentist can work together to determine whether a tooth extraction is required and what is best for you based on your symptoms, medical history, and age.

Symptoms of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

It can be difficult to know if your wisdom teeth are impacted, since symptoms aren’t always present. However, there are some signs that you should be aware of and report to your dentist in Roswell to determine the best course of action and whether wisdom teeth removal is necessary. Signs and symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth include:

  • Pain
  • Swollen, tender, red, or bleeding gums
  • Swelling around the jaw
  • Unpleasant odor of the breath
  • Foul taste in the mouth
  • Headaches of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), the connection between the jaw and skull

Causes of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

For a majority of individuals, the emergence of the wisdom teeth leads to crowding in the mouth, causing abnormal development. These third molars may remain trapped, or impacted, and cause disease, infection, or disrupt normal growth of the surrounding teeth. There are varying degrees of impacted wisdom teeth: some are partially impacted, showing part of the crown through the gum line, while others never break the gum line and are considered fully impacted. Regardless if some or all of the teeth are fully or partially impacted, the risk of complications remains high.

Complications Associated with Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Complications associated with impacted wisdom teeth can begin as nothing more than mild pain or bleeding gums, but if left untreated, can quickly develop into much larger problems, including:

  • Damage to surrounding teeth. The wisdom teeth may push against the second molars, leading to infection or the need for orthodontic work.
  • Development of cysts. Wisdom teeth grow in a sac located within the jawbone. This sac can become filled with fluid and develop an uncomfortable or dangerous cyst that can damage the nerves of the teeth, gums, and jaw.
  • Gum disease and tooth decay.  Wisdom teeth are highly susceptible to infection and decay because this area is often difficult to clean. Food and bacteria easily become trapped between the gum and the teeth and lead to unpleasant outcomes of damage and disease.

When to See your Dentist about Impacted Wisdom Teeth

If you experience pain, inflammation, bleeding gums, or other symptoms at or near the location of your wisdom teeth, schedule a visit with your dentist in Roswell immediately. Failure to address the problem can lead to complications, even in the short term.

Even if your wisdom teeth are not causing discomfort, routine check-ups are essential to ensuring your oral health remains intact. Regular x-rays of the teeth can help your dentist ensure your wisdom teeth are not going to become a problem.
