Are you experiencing wisdom teeth pain? Have you had your mouth checked by an oral surgeon? If not, you should as soon as possible.

Why you need a checkup?

Going to get a checkup is vital especially if you are already experiencing wisdom teeth pain. A checkup will allow your dentist to identify any problems early. The dentist is thereby able to act fast to prevent further aggravation of the problem and provide simple solutions to the current situation.

What happens if you don’t get your mouth checked?

Pain can be a sign of the development of an infection around the wisdom teeth or the misalignment of the teeth. If the tooth is infected and the infection goes untreated, you may develop tooth decay or gum diseases.

Wisdom tooth extraction becomes more complicated and difficult as the tooth’s roots grow longer and the tooth becomes more set in the gum and jaw bone. There is greater risk of nerve damage when extracting a tooth that has set for longer.

What happens during the checkup?

In a typical checkup, the oral surgeon will:

  1. 1.Physically examine your gums, teeth, mouth and tongue.
  2. 2.Inquire about your general health. You should let your dentist know about any pain that you may be experiencing especially in your mouth.
  3. 3.Perform an x-ray of your mouth to determine what the problem is with your wisdom teeth
  4. 4.Advise you on the best course of treatment for the problem

Important information to provide your dentist with

There are various details that many patients deem unimportant and unrelated to their oral hygiene. However, this information is vital for diagnosis and determining the best course of treatment. The necessary important information includes:

  1. 1.Your dental history
  2. 2.Your general health status
  3. 3.Any information on allergies that you may have
  4. 4.Information on medication you are currently taking

Be sure to see your dentist as soon as you notice pain or tenderness of your gums around the wisdom teeth. Early diagnosis will result in easier and less invasive treatments.
