Wisdom Teeth

Impacted Wisdom Teeth Removal

Impacted wisdom teeth, also referred to as impacted third molars, occur when the teeth do not fully erupt in the mouth due to a blockage. This can lead to pain, inflammation, infection, and damage to surrounding teeth. Approximately 53% of people have at least one wisdom tooth come in. Impacted wisdom teeth that cause complications are typically removed.

At Cedar Walk Dentistry, our goal is for you to have a comfortable, relaxing experience where you receive the best dental care possible.

Symptoms of Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Typically, wisdom teeth become visible between the ages of 17 - 25, and are the last teeth to come in. Your dentist will see your wisdom teeth on a dental x-ray. Impacted wisdom teeth do not always cause symptoms; however, your dentist will likely recommend wisdom teeth removal before complications occur. If you experience infection, damage to surrounding teeth, or other problems, you may suffer from:

  • Jaw pain
  • Swelling
  • Teeth crowding
  • Crooked teeth
  • Red gums
  • Bad breath
  • Bleeding gums
  • ...and more
