If your wisdom teeth become impacted, you’ll likely need to have them removed right away. Not only can they cause tender gums, swelling and pain, partially or fully erupted wisdom teeth are difficult to clean—and that could lead to other oral health problems such as tooth decay, infections and gum disease.
If you’re experiencing pain in the back of your mouth, call Today’s Dental to schedule an appointment. We’ll take a panoramic x-ray to determine if impacted wisdom teeth are the cause. If they are, your doctor will talk with you about the extraction process and schedule the removal as soon as possible, getting you out of pain and back to optimal oral health.
