Wisdom Tooth Pain

Are You Having  Wisdom Tooth Pain?

It is not uncommon for wisdom teeth (third molars) to cause trouble. They:

  • Often run out of space at the back of the mouth. 
  • Erupt typically between 16 and early 20’s.
  • Can cause pain from pressure against adjacent teeth and surrounding structures.
  • Hold the tooth in place. Bite on a handkerchief to hold it in position and go to the dentist immediately.
  • Can get stuck (impacted) – often leaving a flap of gum over the back part of the tooth.
  • Can get a gum infection around them (called pericoronitis).

Flap of gum over a wisdom tooth – the perfect place for bacteria and debris to lodge and cause infection.





Do You Have:

  • Significant pain around a wisdom tooth?
  • Swelling of the gum at the back of the mouth?
  • Difficulty or pain opening the mouth?
  • Difficulty or pain to swallowing?
  • A swollen face.

If you are experiencing the above – call now to arrange an appointment so we can help you control the infection and get rid of the pain. Typically – the infection will be controlled prior to a thorough assessment of your entire mouth to determine if removal of wisdom tooth / teeth is indicated.
