Wisdom Teeth Discomfort in Noosa

woman grimacing with jaw painDetermining whether wisdom teeth need to be removed is not always clear for patients. However, certain signs and symptoms can indicate the potential need for extraction. Here are some key indicators to watch out for:

Pain and Discomfort

Persistent pain, tenderness, or discomfort in the back of the mouth could indicate that wisdom teeth are causing issues. This pain can range from dull to sharp and may occur while chewing or biting. If you’re experiencing any form of discomfort, it’s crucial to seek professional evaluation.

Swelling and Redness

Inflamed or infected gums at the back of the mouth can lead to swelling and redness. This swelling can make it challenging to maintain proper oral hygiene, potentially leading to further oral health problems if left untreated. Our dental professionals can assess the extent of the swelling and recommend suitable treatment options.

Difficulty Opening the Mouth

Limited jaw opening or difficulty fully opening the mouth may indicate impaction or other wisdom teeth-related problems. Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain and restrict jaw mobility. Our comprehensive examination will determine the best course of action to alleviate your discomfort and restore normal jaw function.

Bad Breath and Unpleasant Taste

The accumulation of bacteria and food particles around partially erupted or impacted wisdom teeth can cause bad breath (halitosis) and an unpleasant taste in the mouth. These areas can be challenging to clean thoroughly, leading to oral infections and persistent bad breath. Our dental professionals can provide guidance on proper oral hygiene practices and recommend appropriate treatments.
