Oral pain can be a very tricky problem to deal with and sometimes you don’t know where exactly the pain is coming from unless you get a professional oral surgeon to take a look at it.

One of the most common oral pains derives from the improper growth of wisdom teeth. Regardless of whether they are impacted or have broken through the gums, they don’t really show clear symptoms until you are in excruciating pain.

Before it gets too late to curb the complications, you should look out for certain signs that will tell you if you need wisdom teeth removal.

Even if you are not experiencing any pain at the moment, the existence of the flap of gum on wisdom teeth that aren’t fully grown out could trap bits of food that you have eaten and cause bacteria to spread, and will eventually lead to tooth decay.

Here are a couple of signs that can help you determine if you need wisdom teeth removal:

  • Stiffness or pain in the jaw area close to the impacted tooth.
  • The enormous swelling of the flap of gum on your partially grown wisdom tooth.
  • Irritation and pain stemming from the wisdom tooth growing at an awkward angle and pressing against your cheek, tongue, and the top or bottom of your mouth.
  • Your teeth alignment gets out of shape and the crowding of your other teeth.
  • Gum disease and tooth decay because there isn’t enough room for you to properly clean your wisdom tooth and surrounding teeth.

Most of these problems will occur between the ages of 16 -25 depending on the individual but no matter where you are within this age group, wisdom teeth removal is important to help you avoid more serious oral health problems and to keep your teeth aesthetically pleasing.

How does your surgeon diagnose your problem?

Well, you will be examined to look for signs of wisdom teeth growing through your gums or if your teeth are beginning to crowd together. Then, you will have X-rays done to determine the type of growth that you are experiencing and whether or not it will cause any problems in the future.

Sometimes, even if the wisdom tooth isn’t visible, it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. They could be hiding under your gums and you won’t realise it till you get X-rays done.

Many people are afraid of getting their thirds molars removed because this procedure is usually deemed expensive.

In reality, oral surgery is becoming more affordable these days and the costs of wisdom teeth removal are getting lower every day. So, all you need to do is to find the right oral surgeon to assist you with the entire procedure.
