Warning Signs of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are something most people have to deal with at some point. Listed below are a few symptoms that patients often complain about:

  • Red or swollen gums
  • Tender or bleeding gums
  • Jaw pain
  • Swelling around the jaw
  • Bad breath
  • An unpleasant taste in your mouth
  • Difficulty opening your mouth

Many patients remove their wisdom teeth to avoid future issues. The majority of our patients actually remove their wisdom teeth because they are experiencing some kind of pain or issue effecting their oral health. Impacted wisdom teeth (meaning they are not able to grow through the gum line due to space) can cause bite issues due to overcrowding and cause teeth to be crooked. This is caused by the wisdom teeth pushing the lower and upper rows of teeth forward. Overcrowding causes more than just ruining the appearance of your smile. Teeth that are in awkward positions and too close together are prone for plaque and bacteria growth. Excessive bacteria growth can lead to tarter, which can eventually lead you to gum disease and tooth decay.
