Impacted Tooth

Dental Treatments

If you are looking for a way to laugh comfortably, Impacted Tooth treatment is your best choice.

Impacted tooth is a dental condition where the tooth fails to emerge through the gums, either partially or fully. This issue usually occurs with wisdom teeth (third molars) but can also affect other teeth in your mouth.

If it is not treated, an impacted tooth can cause significant damage to nearby nerves, bones and even neighboring healthy teeth. Therefore it’s essential that you seek treatment as soon as possible if you suspect this problem.

The good news is that there are effective treatments available for dealing with an impacted tooth. Your dentist or oral surgeon may recommend extraction of the affected area which will alleviate any discomfort and prevent further complications from occurring.

Alternatively, orthodontic treatment might be necessary to create space for your impacted tooth so that it has room to grow naturally without causing harm elsewhere in your mouth.

FAQ

How to know if wisdom tooth is impacted?

Impacted wisdom teeth can exhibit several signs and symptoms. Pain and discomfort in the back of the mouth, particularly around the affected area, are common indicators. Swelling, redness, and tenderness of the gums near the impacted tooth may also be present. Opening the mouth fully or moving the jaw can become challenging and painful. Jaw stiffness or soreness can occur as well. Impacted wisdom teeth may contribute to persistent bad breath or an unpleasant taste in the mouth due to infection or trapped food particles. The presence of impacted wisdom teeth can exert pressure on neighboring teeth, leading to crowding or shifting. In some cases, upper impacted wisdom teeth can cause sinus pain or congestion. If you experience any of these symptoms or suspect that your wisdom teeth may be impacted, it is advisable to consult with a dentist or oral surgeon. They can conduct a thorough examination, including dental X-rays, to determine the presence of impacted wisdom teeth and recommend appropriate treatment options.

What is an impacted wisdom tooth?

An impacted wisdom tooth refers to a third molar that fails to fully emerge or erupt through the gum line into its normal position in the mouth. This occurs when there is insufficient space for the tooth to grow properly. The impacted tooth can be partially or completely trapped within the gum tissue or jawbone. There are different types of impacted wisdom teeth, including soft tissue impaction, partial bony impaction, and complete bony impaction. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, swelling, infection, and damage to neighboring teeth. They can also contribute to oral health issues. Treatment for impacted wisdom teeth usually involves their surgical removal by a dentist or oral surgeon. Regular dental check-ups and X-rays help monitor the development and positioning of wisdom teeth to determine if extraction is necessary.

Are impacted wisdom teeth harder to remove?

Impacted wisdom teeth can be harder to remove compared to fully erupted teeth. The position and angle of impaction, as well as proximity to surrounding structures, can make the extraction more complex. Surgical techniques and specialized instruments may be necessary, and anesthesia or sedation can be used for patient comfort during the procedure. Consulting with a dental professional is crucial to determine the best approach for removing impacted wisdom teeth based on individual circumstances.

Impacted wisdom tooth is painful?

Yes, impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain. The pain associated with impacted wisdom teeth often occurs due to the pressure exerted by the impacted tooth on surrounding structures such as the gums, jawbone, or adjacent teeth. Inflammation, infection, or the development of a cyst around the impacted tooth can also contribute to pain and discomfort.
