Make Wise Decisions About Impacted Wisdom Teeth


If your wisdom teeth don’t erupt normally, they might be impacted; impaction occurs if there isn’t enough room in your mouth for the teeth to fit, and they become trapped beneath gum tissues inside your jaw. Symptoms like pain and swelling may indicate that your tooth cannot grow in properly. If you don’t deal with impacted wisdom teeth quickly, more serious damage can occur. Only your dentist can verify that your tooth is impacted and recommend the best course of treatment.

Researchers believe that wisdom teeth are left over from our ancient ancestors and that modern eating habits have made them obsolete. Because our ancestors had larger jawbones, their third molars came in with no problem. Our modern bone structure makes it more difficult; there’s simply not enough room for wisdom teeth in the oral cavity.

While some wisdom teeth emerge normally and no treatment is needed, impacted teeth can cause periodontitis, cysts, tumors, and serious infections that can spread to the bone, neck, and surrounding areas. They can also cause other teeth to shift. Impacted teeth can even increase your risk of cavities. Having your wisdom teeth treated by an affordable dentist can prevent complications and improve your overall oral health.

Signs of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

  • Third molars emerging through your gums
  • Swollen, receding, and bleeding gums
  • Sensations of pressure and localized oral pain
  • Bad breath

More often than not, dental extractions are the only solution for dealing with impacted wisdom teeth, especially if infection or severe pain is present. Putting off dental extractions can increase the risk of complications and make recovery time longer. Extractions are usually simple; it takes about an hour and only requires local anesthesia and a few days of recovery time. An affordable dentist or oral surgeon will prescribe pain medicines and antibiotics if needed, and you may need to eat a soft diet for a week or so after the procedure. The following tips can make recovery from wisdom teeth extractions easier.

  • After the procedure, rest as much as possible
  • Rinse your mouth gently with warm, salted water
  • Brush your teeth normally, being careful to avoid the extraction area
  • Do not drink from a straw
