Problems Caused By The Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that are developed generally at the age of 17 to 21. These are the last teeth to emerge. If these teeth are misaligned, then they require removal. This poor alignment of wisdom teeth is known as impacted wisdom teeth. This can cause several problems, thus in such a situation, you should rush to visit a private dentist in Basingstoke. The symptoms include pain, swelling, bad breathing, or unpleasant taste. Furthermore impacted wisdom teeth can damage the adjacent teeth, lead to cavities or decay, or can cause cysts. Dentists use X-rays to examine the impact of wisdom teeth. It can be extracted by a small surgery. The surgery is going to last one hour. It might take a time span of up to 2 weeks to heal the mouth completely. The dentist will prescribe some medicines to manage pain and discomfort.

Complications Faced Due To Impacted Wisdom Tooth:

Pain: An impacted wisdom tooth can damage the adjacent tooth. Thus there is a risk of infection as the loose skin can trap food. This infection can cause pain, swelling, and discomfort. Pain is not limited to teeth, it radiates to the jaw and gums. This pain can also be an indication of pain.

Overcrowding: As a wisdom tooth pushes the adjacent tooth it may result in overcrowding. Some people have small jaws, thus the third molar does not get enough space so that they can grow properly. Thus overcrowding occurs as teeth do not erupt. So teeth will begin to overlap each other.

Tooth Decay: It is difficult to clean impacted wisdom teeth, thus keeping them at the risk of decay and becoming the home for bacteria. Impacted wisdom teeth are at a higher risk of decay than other teeth. This happens because of the location of the tooth. Food gets easily trapped between the gum and molar.

Cyst: The wisdom tooth can cause a cyst by the accumulation of fluid on its top. This cyst can cause swelling, sensitivity, and infection. The cyst is generally a tumor that is non-cancerous. A dentist may do the surgery to remove this cyst.
