Extraction Provides Relief from Painful Wisdom Teeth

dca-blog_tooth-extraction-female-brunette

Oral pain should never be ignored. It can indicate a serious problem like an abscess, a broken filling, or advanced gum disease. If you are a teen or young adult, it could also mean you are soon going to meet your wisdom teeth. Also called third molars, wisdom teeth are located in the two upper and two lower corners of the back of your mouth. They emerge through your gum tissue when you are between the ages of 17 and 21. Unfortunately, the process of erupting isn’t always successful; if your mouth doesn’t have room for your wisdom teeth, they can become trapped inside your jaw. Impacted wisdom teeth are often painful, and your dentist may decide it’s best to perform wisdom teeth extractions.

The pain associated with wisdom teeth is felt at the back of the mouth or jaw and may be accompanied by a sense of pressure or fullness. The area may be red, sore, or inflamed, and you may be able to see the tooth if it has 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. When a 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.

Many people have wisdom teeth that become impacted or grow in sideways, so extractions are common. In addition to relieving pain, wisdom tooth extractions prevent future problems like shifting of other teeth, cysts, tumors, severe infection, and bone loss.

Find a skilled, affordable dentist in Atlanta to evaluate your wisdom teeth and have them removed before they can negatively affect your oral or general health.
