3 Warning Signs of Impacted Wisdom Teeth


Not all impacted teeth require extraction. However depending on the position of  the impacted tooth or teeth, you might need surgical intervention. It is best you do get a consult by an experienced dentist to guide you.

Knowing the signs of having impacted wisdom teeth will let you know whether or not you’ll need professional dental help. However, when you visit your dentist for regular dental checkups, impacted wisdom teeth which have potential to cause you problems can be detected earlier.

If you start having problems with your wisdom teeth, they could be a sign that your impacted third molars are trying to come in or causing gum infection. Although there are various signs and symptoms that will prompt you that something is not right with your wisdom teeth, these three signs will give you reasons to make an appointment and see Dr. Anthony Mobasser.

  1. Pain, discomfort, inability to chew
  2. Swollen, bleeding, inflamed gums near the impacted tooth
  3. Swelling within and around your jaw

These three are primary signs and symptoms that your wisdom teeth can be a potential trouble source. Other symptoms will include unpleasant breath, swollen glands, experiencing bad taste in your mouth and headaches.


If the condition is not treated immediately, it can cause serious complications that can lead to infection primarily and in some occasions crowding in your front teeth. This will also cause abnormal decays in the root area to adjacent teeth. Infection in and around the area will also take place. It is necessary that you consult the best dentist in treating your impacted wisdom teeth. There are various degrees of an impacted tooth. You may notice that the part of the tooth’s crown is showing, this is called semi-impacted wisdom tooth. That is usually a problem. Partially and completely impacted wisdom teeth can cause your gums  near the semi impacted third molar to bleed. It can also result in mild pain, if you don’t see your dentist right away.In some occasions due to the swollen gum, near the wisdom tooth, your opposing tooth biting on the gum can cause serious complications.

Other complications will include gum disease and tooth decay. Your wisdom teeth are more likely to get infected or teeth decay may occur because this area is difficult to clean causing food and bacteria to be trapped in between your teeth and gums. Development of cysts around this area is also possible. These teeth grow in a sac found in the jaw. When the sac is filled with fluid, it can result in uncomfortable cyst causing damage to your nerves. And if you neglect those warning signs, it may lead to a more serious problem, which may require complicated dental treatment. As soon as you start experiencing warning signs of impacted wisdom teeth, it’s important that you talk and schedule an appointment with Dr. Anthony Mobasser. He is the expert in treating wisdom teeth.
