There’s a strong potential you may need to get your wisdom teeth removed because, often, there isn’t enough room in your mouth as they emerge, and they can trigger various dental health concerns. Wisdom teeth, which are located at the back part of your mouth near the arches, may become impacted to where they are stuck under your jaw or gums. Other teeth may erupt in the wrong position due to a lack of space in the arch for them to fit along the rest of your teeth.

During a consultation at Corona Oral Surgery and Implant Center, Drs. Prabh Grewal and Arthur Kilkuts can review your wisdom teeth and determine if they require removal to protect the rest of your teeth and reduce any discomfort in Corona, CA.

A few signs to watch for that suggest you may require wisdom tooth extraction include:

1. You notice intense pain in the back of your mouth

You could experience substantial dental pain around the back of your mouth due to the wisdom teeth pressing upon other tissues. The teeth might apply pressure to your other healthy teeth, or they might interfere with the jaw structure. Wisdom teeth can also trigger infections that lead to dental pain. A tooth that has partially erupted could produce a new space for bacteria to spread, making it easier for a painful infection to form.

2. Your jaw feels stiff or painful

Another problem that often occurs is pain or stiffness in the jaw, as wisdom teeth can change how you bite your teeth together. Sometimes, the wisdom teeth can crowd neighboring teeth, causing you to adjust how you chew. The sudden change to your bite can cause jaw pain and irritation. Removing your wisdom teeth at Corona Oral Surgery and Implant Center can help restore your bite and reduce pain.

3. You start to spot cysts near the wisdom teeth

You can develop cysts around the wisdom teeth if they are not removed. According to the American Dental Association, cysts can form near the wisdom tooth as sacs of fluid start to build. These cysts can trigger pains around your jaw, teeth, and nerves. They can also damage the bone structure around your teeth and eventually weaken other healthy teeth.

4. You have bad breath that will not go away

Most cases of bad breath are easy to treat, but sometimes you might experience bad breath that won’t go away. The problem occurs because it is hard to clean the back parts of your mouth. Food particles can become trapped in the area, producing an uncomfortable taste in your mouth or potential infection.

Could you still keep your wisdom teeth?

We can assess your wisdom teeth at Corona Oral Surgery and Implant Center to see if they need to be removed, but regular monitoring is still necessary. Just because your wisdom teeth aren’t causing problems now, they may still be an issue years from now.
