Pain in the wisdom tooth: Wisdom Teeth Treatment Thane

Signs that you need Wisdom Teeth Treatment Thane

Pain in the last molar region

One of the most common signs that indicate the need for Wisdom Teeth Treatment Thane is pain at the site of the last molar. If enough space is in the jawbone, the last molar erupts in the desired location. However, in most cases, insufficient space leads to unerupted or partially erupted molar. The angulation of the last molar is an important criterion that decides the difficulty level of Wisdom Teeth Treatment Thane – Usually leads to Teeth Extractions

Pain while opening the mouth

Due to the tenderness present in the muscles of the jaw, there is incomplete jaw opening and pain while opening the mouth. The mouth opening can be reduced substantially depending on the severity of the impaction.

Thus, it becomes essential to evaluate yourself clinically and radiologically at The Dental Solutions, NABH Accredited Clinic Thane. Our team of oral surgeons in Majiwada will examine the case and formulate a customized plan for  Wisdom Teeth Treatment Thane

Inflamed gum or soft tissues

The partially erupted wisdom tooth leads to the pocket formation between the last molar and the adjacent tooth. This pocket harbors bacteria due to food accumulation, as it is difficult to clean this area properly. This growth of bacteria leads to gum inflammation and swelling of the overlying soft tissues.

What if you do not go for Wisdom Teeth Treatment Thane

Damage to the adjacent tooth

The angulation of the tooth is an important factor in deciding the treatment plan for wisdom tooth extraction. If the last molar is angulated in such a way that it puts pressure onto the adjacent tooth, then there are chances of damage to the root of the 2nd molar. This root damage leads to the pain 

Lesion formation

The completely impacted tooth has the tendency to develop a cystic lesion if not extracted. This cystic lesion tends to weaken the jaw structure and make it prone to fracture. The cystic lesion can transform itself into other tumors and even carcinoma

Spread of infection

The infection in the soft tissues around the tooth can spread into the surrounding region and lead to life-threatening conditions. It is crucial to address the impacted wisdom tooth timely before the appearance of complications. Therefore we at The Dental Solutions, Majiwada, suggest periodic checkups for timely intervention

Effect on the TMJ

The wisdom tooth’s pain radiates from the back of the mouth to the temporomandibular joint and the temple region. The muscles that help in opening and closing the mouth also become sore, ultimately affecting the TMJ
