Whether you’re dealing with constant pain or discomfort associated with chewing and touching the area, wisdom tooth pain can be worrying and even debilitating. If you’re experiencing pain, don’t wait! Our incredible Greenwood Village wisdom tooth removal dentists are here to help.

What causes wisdom tooth pain?

Pain as a result of wisdom teeth is a common problem for patients. While some individuals are able to comfortably accommodate these new molars, the majority of people don’t have the space, which causes impaction. Some impacted wisdom teeth don’t cause any immediate problems, but for many, they can result in significant pain and health risks.

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause inflammation and leave you vulnerable to infection and swelling. Because this area is in such close proximity to your facial muscles, this can lead to pain in the jaw as well as the gums.

If you’re experiencing tooth pain, you can visit Village Dental to have a thorough exam so we can determine if your wisdom teeth are the cause. We’ll also help you develop a treatment plan to restore your oral health and ease your discomfort.

Benefits of wisdom tooth removal

No more pain

If you’re suffering from wisdom tooth pain, removal will relieve your symptoms, take the burden off of your gums and surrounding teeth, and make daily activities like chewing and talking more comfortable.

Improved general oral health

Because wisdom teeth are set so far back in the mouth and rarely erupt normally, cleaning the area adequately on a daily basis can be especially tricky. Not being able to properly clean the area leaves you at a far greater risk of developing excess plaque, which can lead to gum disease and other negative health conditions.

Better breath

Bad breath is one of the most common side effects of impacted wisdom teeth because, as the gum tissue becomes compromised, excess bacteria can easily become trapped. This not only puts your health at risk, but it also causes other unpleasant symptoms, including a foul odor.

How are wisdom teeth removed?

The procedure is usually outpatient, meaning that you should be able to go home the same day. Just make sure to arrange to have someone drive you home as you likely won’t be able to drive safely on your own right after your procedure.

The extraction is performed by:

  • Administering a general anesthetic so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort
  • Removing the overlying gum tissue surrounding your wisdom teeth
  • Removing your wisdom teeth
  • Stitching up your gums
  • Giving you a detailed recovery plan once you wake up

Frequently Asked Questions

Do wisdom teeth always need to be removed?

Not always. Wisdom teeth may not need to be removed if they’re healthy, fully erupted (grown in), and not affecting your bite. However, if you’re experiencing pain or difficulty brushing and flossing the area, or if x-rays indicate problems down the line, wisdom tooth removal is usually necessary.

How much does wisdom tooth removal cost?

We’ll outline the cost of your care before the procedure. As a non-contracted provider, we’re able to offer care at a fair rate. If you have questions about insurance and other payment options, don’t hesitate to reach out! We believe everyone should have access to high-quality dental care, and we’re here to help.
