Warning Signs of Impacted Teeth

We all have had those moments when a tinge of pain in our body interrupts our day, and one of the oral health pains that can occur is through an impacted tooth. This pain can come out of nowhere and cause a major wrench in your day. An impacted tooth is when the tooth is unable to break through the gums or has only been able to partially break through, due to limited amount of space in the bone or crowding of other teeth. It is important to be aware of the signs that can signify an impacted tooth. Here is what we at Prescott Dentistry want you to be aware of.

Sign #1-Pain in the back of your mouth

When your teeth are impacted, specifically your wisdom teeth, it can cause throbbing pain in the back of your mouth that doesn’t go away. As the teeth go untreated, the pain can increase, radiating to other teeth around it.

Sign #2-Headaches or Jaw Ache

With the wisdom teeth wreaking havoc on your bone, the pain can radiate elsewhere. The bones in your jaw connect to your head and skull which would result in the added pressure extending throughout your head. The jaw bone may become increasingly tender as the wisdom teeth attempt to break through, and can cause regular headaches.

Sign #3-Swelling

Your body will try to compensate for the pain and impacted tooth through swelling of the tissue. Swelling and redness can begin in the gums around the impacted tooth and can cause swelling in your jaw itself. There is also a possibility for infection to develop, causing swelling in the lymph nodes and glands of the neck as well.

Don’t let pain interrupt or steal the energy from your day. Pay attention to what your body is saying and contact your local dentist If you feel that you are having these symptoms. Prescott Dentistry is here for all your oral health, cosmetic dentistry and biomimetic dentistry needs in Arizona.
