Wisdom Teeth Pain
What Are The Symptoms of Wisdom Tooth Pain?
If you do not experience pain when the wisdom teeth cut through, you are one of the lucky ones. However, that does not mean they are not causing oral health issues.
Even if there is no pain, the position of the impacted teeth can trap bits of food that can become a breeding ground for bacteria, which in turn can lead to infection and decay – to your other teeth as well as your wisdom teeth.
It is not uncommon for abscesses and bone loss to appear behind otherwise healthy neighbouring teeth, resulting in expensive root canal treatments or permanent tooth loss.
When experiencing symptoms that may be linked to an impacted wisdom tooth behind your last molar, you should consult the team at Focus Dental immediately for pain relief and to ensure there are no further complications.
When Will Wisdom Tooth Extraction Be Required?
If you are in constant pain from your wisdom teeth, it is not going to get better on its own. If you have pain in your teeth, pain treatment is available – but that is only a temporary measure. Situations, where your wisdom teeth will need to be extracted, include:
What You Can Expect From Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Your dentist will use special forceps or a tool called an elevator to widen the tooth’s socket after the anaesthetic has taken effect. Once the tooth is loose enough to be removed, the dentist will move it from side to side until it is completely removed.
In some cases, the tooth may be more challenging to remove and it may be necessary to remove a small part of the bone on the jaw to reach it. This is not common, but you can be assured the process will be as pain-free as possible.
The entire procedure only takes a few minutes. Even in more challenging cases, you won’t be in the chair for longer than half an hour. Our highly qualified and experienced dental anesthesiologists will ensure this is not a painful procedure and we provide full after-care for wisdom tooth removal pain as well.
After the Procedure, What Should You Expect?
Your dentist will decide which treatment is best for your specific circumstances since every situation is different.
If the stitches need to be removed or inspected, we will let you know when you should return. Although the stitches may fall out on their own accord, this allows the dentist to inspect the surgical site to make sure it has completely healed.
