The partial eruption of a wisdom tooth often leads to pain and swelling and increases the possibility of bacterial infection. When a wisdom tooth remains trapped beneath the gums, it may damage the surrounding structures. Wisdom tooth disimpaction is a common procedure performed to correct a problem or to prevent future problems.
An erupting wisdom tooth often causes pain, swelling and fever in a large percentage of patients. Wisdom tooth pain is generally the cue for many people to visit a dentist and have their wisdom tooth pulled out. The recovery period after wisdom tooth removal is three-four days. Painkillers can aid in reducing the painful symptoms.
Whether your symptoms are obvious or obscure, it is important to consult a dental specialist and have your wisdom tooth diagnosed for existing or potential problems. Call XL Smiles Dental Clinic today if you haven’t had your wisdom tooth extracted so far.
