Infected Wisdom Tooth Symptoms

Posted on 12/5/2022 by San Francisco Dental Arts
Infected Wisdom Tooth SymptomsA cavity or impaction can cause an infection in wisdom teeth. When you clean your teeth, getting to your wisdom teeth may be challenging since they are molars and tend to reside at the very back of your mouth. This makes it difficult to reach them. Therefore, if you do not properly clean your teeth, germs may readily fester, which makes it easier for a cavity to take hold. It is critical to understand accurately what to anticipate before receiving treatment for either the pain or the illness.

Gums that bleed easily are an early warning indication that the defenses in your mouth have been compromised. This likely indicates that the bacterium has already begun to colonize the area. In addition, if you have trouble opening your jaw or chewing your food, this is one of the most obvious signs that something is wrong with your oral health.

There Are Numerous Signs Of Infected Wisdom Teeth

You may have dental sensitivity if you always grit your teeth and grimace in agony whenever you eat or drink anything. This can indicate that the infection is worsening and needs to be treated as soon as possible.

In addition, given that wisdom teeth are located in the very back of the mouth, close to the jaw, experiencing discomfort in the jaw indicates something is not quite right. In addition, if you feel a bulge at the base of your jaw, this is often a sign that an infection is about to occur. This indicates that you must contact a medical practitioner as soon as possible.
