causing you pain or discomfort?

When the tooth does not grow through the gum into the mouth or only grows part way through and is in an abnormal position, it is not uncommon for these teeth to become impacted.
Impacted wisdom teeth can be painful and cause a variety of problems, including infection. Symptoms of wisdom tooth infection include:
- Reddened, inflamed gums alongside the wisdom tooth
- Pus from the gum line
- Difficulties with opening your mouth and swallowing
The best course of action for problematic wisdom teeth is to have them removed. Your dentist will discuss pain relief options that can vary from a simple local anaesthetic to sedation if you are concerned. You will also be prescribed pain relief to help with any pain after the procedure.
If you have any of these symptoms or are concerned about your wisdom teeth, contact us for an appointment.
