Wisdom Teeth Pain Relief

Wisdom teeth pain can be one of the worst pains that a person experiences. Wisdom teeth are the third molars that generally emerge in your late teens or 20s.

This tooth eruption can be uncomfortable and may cause several problems, which cause your dentist to recommend having them removed.

Suppose you’re having some pain around the back of your mouth and suspect it might be due to either an emerging wisdom tooth or a possible infection.

If you are suffering from wisdom teeth pain and looking for the best treatment to relieve pain, then we are here to help you.

General Signs, You Need To Get Wisdom Teeth Removed

Did you know that about 95% of the population has wisdom teeth? Some people deal with wisdom teeth issues during youth and early adulthood. Here are some common signs you need to get wisdom teeth removed.

1. Impacted Wisdom Teeth

An impacted wisdom tooth is a molar that fails to fully erupt into the oral cavity due to inadequate space or obstruction from surrounding structures. These structures may include neighbouring teeth and overlying bone.

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause symptoms, including:

  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Jaw pain
  • Stiffness in the jaw
  • Bad breath
  • Difficulty opening the mouth

Our dentists at SD Dental Cleveland may suggest extracting impacted wisdom teeth to prevent future issues or other oral health problems.

2. Improper Teeth Growth

When wisdom teeth erupt, they encroach too much on the oral cavity and prevent braces from straightening them out. When the mouth is overcrowded, the only choice is to remove the teeth because no operation can be performed to make the teeth fit.

There are typically 28 teeth in the mouth before wisdom teeth erupt. There will be 32 teeth after the wisdom teeth erupt. Which teeth should be removed can be decided by our experienced dentist.

3. Pain and Irritation

Wisdom teeth can become painful when they develop. Make an appointment with our dentist for an examination and an x-ray if you’re in pain or uncomfortable.

If the wisdom teeth or other issues are causing discomfort, our dentist can determine whether extraction is the best action.

4 . Cavities

The wisdom teeth’ location can significantly affect cleaning areas where germs can lurk and harm tooth health. Inflammation of the gums can lead to pockets forming between the teeth, which encourages the growth of germs.

This will then encourage the growth of cavities and tooth decay, ultimately resulting in infection.

Wisdom Teeth Pain Relief

Sometimes, there isn’t enough time for wisdom teeth to grow. Affected wisdom teeth become trapped, causing pain in the teeth and gums. 

Surgery to remove wisdom teeth is frequently required to address dental decay, illness, or infection. The procedure is a minor surgery that takes a few minutes to perform in simple cases but may take longer in more complicated ones.

The Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Removal

Here are some advantages of wisdom tooth removal:

1. Wisdom Teeth Removal Avoids Harm To Other Teeth

Wisdom teeth rarely erupt correctly aligned. Affected teeth may cause bad breath, jaw pain, headaches, swelling and tenderness. 

Even when wisdom teeth fully come out, they can erupt crookedly or at the wrong angle. 

Such uneven misalignment can force your other teeth to shift out of place, which may give rise to pain, headaches, bite problems, etc. Symptoms may be quickly relieved upon removal.

2 . Wisdom Teeth Removal Decreases The Risk Of Gum Disease.

It is demanding to keep misaligned or partially impacted wisdom teeth clean. Toothbrush bristles often can’t draw out tiny food particles stuck between the gum and improper teeth.

The bacteria in the food particles can cause tooth decay and increase your risk of developing a harsh inflammatory gum condition called pericoronitis.

3 . Reduced Risk Of Developing Cysts

Cysts, a fluid-filled sac, or benign tumours can sometimes develop near fully impacted wisdom teeth. Fluid-filled sacs, Cysts and tumours can damage other teeth and weaken the jaw bone. In rare cases, a cyst or a tumour may cause a jaw fracture.

Wisdom teeth removal is a relatively safe procedure. You may need wisdom tooth removal if you have consistent pain or other issues from wisdom teeth. Our clinic has a professional dentist who can help you with wisdom teeth pain.
