Warning signs of an impacted wisdom tooth Newington, CT

When you start having problem with wisdom teeth, you are likely to have impacted ones.  Impacted teeth are those which are not fully erupted through the gums into the mouth.  When your tooth gets impacted, there are some important signs that will alert you.

If left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can result in gum infection, tooth decay and abnormal development of the adjacent teeth. As a result, this can lead to potential complications for both partially impacted and completely impacted teeth. Understanding the warning signs of impacted wisdom teeth is therefore crucial as this will lead you to get immediate dental help.

There are three primary signs of impacted wisdom teeth. However all may or may not experience all these three signs together.

Sometimes, there are additional symptoms associated with impacted wisdom tooth. These include:

  • Bad taste in the mouth
  • Unpleasant breath
  • Swollen glands
  • Ongoing earaches
  • Headaches at the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), the connecting joint between the jaw and the skull

Unfortunately ignoring these signs and symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth can lead to more serious complications such as development of cysts that can damage your nerves in the jaws. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you visit your dentist immediately no sooner you experience any of the above warning signs.
