Signs of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

The wisdom teeth are the third molars at the back of the mouth. If a family dentist in Austin tells you that your wisdom teeth are impacted, it means that these teeth do not have enough space to erupt properly. This common problem can be quite painful and it can lead to complications. Wisdom tooth extraction may be called for if you are experiencing jaw pain and swelling, an unpleasant taste, persistent bad breath, or difficulty opening your mouth. Impacted wisdom teeth might also cause red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums.

The signs and symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth are more likely to be noticeable when the condition is causing complications. For instance, impacted wisdom teeth that aren’t extracted promptly may become infected, causing an unpleasant taste and a foul odor. Other complications can include damage to the nearby teeth, misalignment of the other teeth, and the development of a cyst. Impacted wisdom teeth increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, since it’s difficult to maintain good oral hygiene with this condition.
