Wisdom Teeth Discomfort in Noosa

wisdom tooth under gumPatients may not always be able to determine on their own if their wisdom teeth need to be removed, as the need for extraction is often determined by a dental professional after a thorough examination and, in some cases, dental imaging. However, several signs and symptoms may indicate the potential need for wisdom teeth removal.

Pain and Discomfort

Persistent pain, tenderness, or discomfort in the back of the mouth, especially when chewing or biting, can indicate that wisdom teeth are causing problems. This pain can be dull or sharp and may come and go or be constant.

Swelling and Redness

Swelling and redness in the gums at the back of the mouth may indicate inflammation or infection associated with wisdom teeth. This swelling can make it difficult to brush or floss properly, leading to further oral health issues if left untreated.

Difficulty Opening the Mouth

Limited jaw opening or difficulty fully opening the mouth can be a sign of impaction or other problems related to wisdom teeth. If the wisdom teeth cannot come in properly, they may become impacted, causing pain and limited mobility in the jaw.

Bad Breath and Unpleasant Taste

Bad breath (halitosis) and an unpleasant taste in the mouth can be caused by the accumulation of bacteria and food particles around partially erupted or impacted wisdom teeth. These areas can be difficult to clean thoroughly, leading to oral infections and persistent bad breath.
