Wisdom Teeth Pain

While most of our teeth come through when we are children, additional molars called wisdom teeth will often cut through in our teenage years and into our twenties. It is common for most people to have four wisdom teeth, although some people have more and others have less – or none. Because our teeth have already come through and are set, there is never usually enough room for these wisdom teeth to come through correctly. This can result in impacted wisdom teeth that are trapped under the gum, broken molars, painful exposed nerve endings and many other oral health complications. Those familiar with the pain from wisdom teeth know how excruciating it can be. Focus Dental provides the most professional treatment for the extraction of wisdom teeth, impacted wisdom tooth pain relief, and managed wisdom teeth pain after removal at our Blackburn clinic.

What Are The Symptoms of Wisdom Tooth Pain?

There are not always symptoms associated with impacted wisdom teeth. A wisdom tooth that has become infected, damaged other teeth or caused other oral issues may cause some of these symptoms:
  • The wisdom tooth area is swollen and painful.
  • It is difficult to open your mouth.
  • It is painful to chew and swallow.
  • There is swelling under the jaw.
  • You feel pressure in your jaw and joints.

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?

The best method on how to stop wisdom tooth pain is to have them extracted by the professional team at Focus Dental.
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:
  • When they are cutting through the gum at the wrong angle
  • If they are not coming through correctly or naturally
  • When they are impacting your other teeth or threatening to damage your molars
  • You cannot clean your teeth effectively because of their position
  • You are suffering from gum infection including extreme incidents called pericoronitis
We can provide wisdom teeth pain relief and our expert team of dentists will provide x-rays and advice on whether they need to be extracted. Additionally, we provide teeth whitening, invisalign, implant dentistry, emergency dental care, and other dental services.

What You Can Expect From Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Depending on how deeply impacted the teeth are, wisdom teeth may need to be removed. They are typically extracted just like typical molars.
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?

Some discomfort is normal following wisdom tooth removal. There is some discomfort and swelling for several days, but it varies from person to person.
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.
