Why are Wisdom Teeth Extracted?

Since the human jaw has gotten smaller over time, wisdom teeth erupting can cause discomfort and other concerns. These issues occur because they don’t fit, and it can lead to overcrowded or crooked teeth. People can also develop jaw pain, and wisdom teeth are highly likely to become impacted. For this reason, we remove them.

Symptoms of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

If your wisdom teeth become infected or causes damage to other teeth, they have become impacted. They can cause discomfort and other oral health problems unless you remove them. Some symptoms you’ll notice if you have impacted wisdom teeth include:

  • Jaw pain
  • Difficulty opening your mouth
  • Constant bad breath
  • Tender, red, or bleeding gums
  • Swelling around the jaw

What to Expect After the Treatment

After your surgery, you may feel groggy from the anesthesia. You will also be in pain for the first few days after the treatment, but pain medications can help manage it. While you recover, you’ll need to rest, hold an ice pack over your jaw, and eat soft foods. You’ll also want to stay hydrated and avoid drinking through a straw.
