Wisdom tooth removal in Liverpool, Merseyside

Dec 5, 2023

Wisdom teeth come through from late teenage years to mid-twenties. Sometimes they do not erupt properly (they are impacted). Impacted wisdom teeth can cause further issues such as pain, swelling and infection. To treat these symptoms and prevent further oral health issues, your dentist might recommend the removal of your wisdom tooth or teeth.

Rarely there might be issues occurring after wisdom teeth extraction. These might include:

* Infection around the area where your wisdom tooth was removed.

* Accidental damage to teeth close to that area.

* Dry socket – when a blood cloth covering the wound comes off and exposes bone and nerves underneath. This can cause some pain and bad breath.

* Damage to nerves, which can cause pain, tingling, pins and needles and numbness.

* A broken jaw, although this is very rare.

Most patients do not experience any complications after wisdom teeth removal. If you experience any of the mentioned symptoms, you should talk to your dentist.
