The Signs & Symptoms of Wisdom Teeth Complications

Wisdom Teeth

Pain is never something that should be ignored. If you are experiencing wisdom teeth pain talk to your dentist. And, even if you are not experiencing pain, talk to your dentist about monitoring the position of your wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth removal is necessary for approximately 85 percent of adults—either because they have impacted wisdom teeth that are causing them problems or because the risk of complications is high. Many family dentistry experts recommend wisdom teeth removal as a preventive measure. Wisdom teeth can become impacted and lead to dangerous infections or emerge crooked, crowding the mouth, and leading to misalignment of surrounding teeth. That’s why it’s important not to ignore the state of your wisdom teeth.

Your dentist can help advise you about your specific needs and if wisdom teeth removal is essential to your long-term health. You and your dentist may consider several factors:

  • Do you have wisdom teeth pain?
  • Do you have fully or partially impacted wisdom teeth?
  • Do you have other medical conditions that could affect surgery or increase risk of infection?
  • What is the state of your oral hygiene?

Wisdom Teeth Removal Facts

  • It is a common belief among many oral surgeons that impacted wisdom teeth should be removed by the age of 20 to prohibit further complications. As you age, the surgery becomes more difficult, making the risk greater and recovery more intensive.
  • There are a number of dentists who believe wisdom teeth should remain in place until at least the age of 30, unless they are causing the patient problems.
  • There is no concrete evidence in favor of or staunchly against preventive wisdom teeth removal.

If you have diseased or impacted wisdom teeth, or wisdom teeth pain, they should be removed. The procedure can be performed by your family dentist in some cases, or you may be referred to an oral surgeon.

Signs of Wisdom Teeth Problems

Some people may not experience any wisdom teeth pain despite complications with the teeth. These signs and symptoms, while sometimes subtle, can let you know when it might be time to talk to your dentist about wisdom teeth removal:

  • Discomfort from a tooth emerging at an awkward angle and rubbing against your cheek or tongue.
  • Development of an infection where a partially impacted wisdom tooth may have emerged.
  • Stiffness of the jaw or wisdom teeth pain.
  • Teeth begin to shift due to crowding in the mouth.
  • Development of tooth decay or gum disease due to inability to clean teeth.
