Bacteria and pieces of food can get stuck under the flap of gum where a wisdom tooth is being pushed up to the surface, causing infection. Additionally teeth growing in sideways can cause misalignment of the other teeth.
Symptoms of an impacted wisdom tooth include jaw pain, headaches, swollen or bleeding gums, difficulty opening your mouth and bad breath.

Most people prefer to be unaware during the experience and opt for IV sedation. If the patient decides to do IV sedation, they must have an adult companion bring them to and from the office and stay with them until they are completely recovered from the sedation.

Otherwise a patient’s mouth will be numbed with a local anesthetic. An incision into the gum will be made in order to cut the tooth into smaller pieces for easier extraction. After the procedure there may be swelling and discomfort, which usually goes away within a few days. This experience will vary patient to patient, depending on the circumstance.
