Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions About
Wisdom Teeth Pain

Most people get their wisdom teeth removed when they begin to give them problems or there isn’t enough room for the tooth to grow properly. Removal is usually necessary if the wisdom teeth are impacted, meaning they are stuck in the jawbone and unable to erupt normally. Signs of impacted wisdom teeth include pain, tenderness, swelling in the gums around the tooth, gum infection, and bad breath. In some cases, a cyst can form around an impacted wisdom tooth, which may damage nearby teeth and nerves.

Additionally, if orthodontic treatment is being done to straighten your bite and you don’t have enough room in your mouth for all your adult teeth, removing your wisdom teeth may be an option before starting braces.

The severity of your wisdom teeth pain will determine how mild or severe your symptoms are. Some common signs and symptoms that you may experience include:

  • Jaw pain, especially when biting down or chewing something.
  • Tenderness in your gums near the impacted tooth.
  • Inflammation and redness of your gums.
  • Swelling in your face (the area where your wisdom teeth are located).
  • Difficulty opening your mouth wide.
  • Bad breath due to bacterial growth caused by food particles trapped around the impacted wisdom tooth.

By addressing wisdom teeth pain, you can avoid further complications, such as spreading infection to your throat and neck. In addition, it can prevent damage to other teeth and gums that may be affected by overcrowding or misalignment caused by the impacted tooth. Removing a wisdom tooth can also reduce pressure in the area and result in improved jaw function and comfort.

Finally, taking measures to address wisdom teeth pain can relieve the discomfort that could otherwise become unbearable when you are experiencing wisdom teeth pain. It’s important to seek professional dental help at Royal Dental Spa to prevent further problems.

When wisdom tooth pain is not managed, it can lead to various complications and even more serious health problems. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause infection due to the food particles that become lodged in the area, which can eventually spread throughout other body parts.

In addition, if left unmanaged, impacted wisdom teeth can worsen other existing dental issues. This can include infections or gum disease that could otherwise be managed if detected earlier. Impacted wisdom teeth may also cause damage to neighbouring teeth or cause crowding of other healthy dental structures.

At Royal Dental Spa, the professional dentists are experienced in diagnosing and addressing any underlying conditions associated with your wisdom teeth pain.

The causes of pain from wisdom teeth can be numerous and varied, but typically fall under one of the following broad categories, such as:

  • Impaction
    When one or more wisdom teeth are impacted, they cannot come through the gum line as normal. It can cause immense pressure on neighbouring healthy teeth or even create cysts and infections.

  • Cysts
    Impacted wisdom teeth can result in cysts that are filled with fluid, and although the majority of these sacs are not harmful, they may still destroy bones and nearby teeth.

  • Infection
    If infection or cysts form within the gum tissue due to impacted wisdom teeth, it can cause swelling and extreme pain.
