Impacted tooth occurs when a tooth is not erupted fully from the gums. Wisdom teeth are the ones commonly found to be impacted. An impacted tooth usually does not pain, and therefore you may not even realize that it is there. However, there are three prominent initial signs which can help you to know that your tooth has got impacted.
- Pain and tenderness in the gums at the back of the mouth
- Swelling around the jaw
- Bleeding gums
Early detection of impacted tooth will help you to minimize discomfort and related pain. Therefore, Dr.Ranjitha highly recommends everyone to go for a regular dental check-up to avoid dental issues such as impaction.
