Wisdom Tooth Pain - Explained!

Are you feeling a pain in your mouth that just won’t go away? It might be your wisdom teeth causing the trouble.

Wisdom tooth pain can be intense and could affect our daily activities like eating and drinking. This discomfort often stems from issues like impaction (when the tooth can’t break through the gum), infection, inflammation, and sometimes damage to the surrounding teeth or nerves.

At Honest Tooth Dental Care, we specialise in addressing your wisdom teeth concerns. Whatever the source of your discomfort, our experienced dentists are here to provide effective treatment and relief.

Frequently Asked Questions

A wisdom tooth is a third set of molars that typically appear in your late teens or early twenties. They often need to be removed because there is not enough space in the mouth for them to come in properly, causing crowding, pain, or other oral health issues.

Wisdom teeth removal is typically performed by an oral surgeon using a local anesthetic or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preference and the complexity of the case. The dentist may use a scalpel or other surgical instruments to remove the tooth.

Recovery after wisdom tooth removal can vary depending on the individual, but most people experience some swelling, pain, and discomfort for a few days to a week after the procedure. Over-the-counter pain medication and cold compresses can help manage symptoms, and patients are typically advised to stick to a soft-foods diet for a few days.

As with any surgery, there are potential risks associated with wisdom tooth removal, such as infection, bleeding, nerve damage, and reaction to anesthesia. However, these risks are generally minimal when the procedure is performed by an experienced oral surgeon.
