Do you have persistent jaw pain, bleeding gums, and difficulty opening your mouth? Gere’s how removing your wisdom teeth can benefit your oral and overall health. 

There are few oral health conditions that are as frustrating and painful as impacted wisdom teeth. If your tooth has become impacted, there are an array of signs that will alert you that something is not right, and if so, it’s important to schedule an appointment with your Calgary dentist as soon as possible.

Some of the symptoms of an impacted wisdom tooth include:

  • Jaw pain
  • Bad breath
  • Difficulty opening your mouth
  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • Earaches or headaches

5 Benefits of Removing Your Wisdom Teeth

When they emerge, wisdom teeth can prove to be problematic to your oral health, and if they are not removed, they can contribute to a number of serious and painful dental and general health conditions.

These include:

  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Occlusal problems
  • Orofacial pain

Most dentists recommend removing wisdom teeth due to this problematic nature and having them extracted early on can greatly improve the quality of your life and minimize any potential complications.

Here are 5 main reasons why you should have your wisdom teeth removed:

  1. Inflammation or infection. Due to limited space and partial impactions, wisdom teeth can often lead to gum inflammation, which may lead to painful gum disease or other oral health In addition, when a tooth is partially impacted, a separation can occur between it and the gum, creating a breeding ground for bacteria and increase the risk of infection.

  2. Overcrowding. When wisdom teeth erupt, they often enter a crowded area, and with limited space to move in, neighbouring teeth are often pushed aside, resulting in misalignment. Whether you have a naturally straight smile or underwent orthodontic treatment, wisdom teeth can unravel years of dental work or undo a straight smile.

  3. Damage to nearby teeth. Wisdom teeth can do more than just overcrowd nearby teeth. In fact, they can contribute to bone loss and cavities in neighbouring teeth.

  4. Cysts or tumors. Did you know that an impacted tooth can lead to tiny tumors or cysts in the jawbone, which can then lead to jaw pain, requiring expensive TMJ treatments?

  5. Poor dental health. Even if you experience no pain or obvious complications for wisdom teeth, your dental hygiene may still be at risk. An impacted tooth can make it difficult to brush and floss, making those teeth and the ones surrounding them prime targets for plaque buildup and cavities.  
     

Book a Consultation With Your Calgary Dentist

Even though your wisdom teeth aren’t causing you obvious discomfort, without extraction, you may experience recurrent infections and other dental issues that require extensive and expensive treatment, medications, or more.

If your wisdom teeth have erupted, it’s best to book an appointment with your dentist, as they can examine your mouth, address any concerns you have, and suggest a treatment plan to protect your oral health.
