What Causes an Impacted Wisdom Tooth?
Mostly, wisdom teeth become impacted because it is the last tooth to enter the oral cavity and by then your jaw doesn’t have enough space for it to emerge. Sometimes, partial impaction is seen when the tooth grows in the wrong direction.
How is an Impacted Wisdom Tooth Diagnosed?
We have an in-house OPG and CT scan machine with which X-ray images are taken and a thorough examination of your mouth is done before making a treatment plan. An X-ray shows whether your teeth are impacted and if it has damaged other teeth and bone. If your teeth are impacted, our dentist is going to discuss with you the benefits and risks of surgical extraction.
What are the Symptoms?
Impacted teeth won’t cause any problems for some patients, while others might show obvious symptoms. Keeping a partially impacted wisdom tooth clean is difficult, they can also cause food to become trapped which can lead to tooth decay. For some people, a partially impacted tooth is very painful. If the tooth becomes infected or causes other issues, you may have symptoms such as:
- pain or swelling around the jaw
- red, swollen, or bleeding gums
- bad breath
- an unpleasant taste in your mouth
- problems opening your mouth
In other cases, the affected tooth may never break through the gums. This is known as a fully impacted wisdom tooth.
