What Are Impacted Wisdom Teeth?

Impacted wisdom teeth are third molars at the back of the mouth that don’t have enough room to emerge or develop normally. Impaction can be partial or complete, leading to a range of complications, including pain, infection, and damage to adjacent teeth.

Recognizing the Symptoms

Symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth may include:

  • Swelling, pain, or tenderness in the gums or jaw
  • Difficulty opening your mouth
  • Bad breath or an unpleasant taste in the mouth
  • Prolonged jaw ache or headache

Why Treatment Is Crucial

Leaving impacted wisdom teeth untreated can lead to more serious issues, such as the development of cysts, damage to adjacent teeth, and severe infections. Dr. Harris emphasizes the importance of early detection and treatment to prevent these complications and maintain overall oral health.

The Treatment Process

Dr. Harris employs a detailed evaluation process, including advanced imaging techniques, to assess the position and condition of your wisdom teeth. Depending on the severity of impaction, treatment options may range from monitoring to surgical removal. Our team ensures that you are fully informed of your treatment plan and comfortable every step of the way.

Recovery and Aftercare

Following the removal of impacted wisdom teeth, Dr. Harris provides comprehensive aftercare instructions to promote healing, minimize discomfort, and speed up recovery. These may include medication management, dietary recommendations, and oral hygiene practices tailored to your specific needs.”
