Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to grow into an adult’s mouth and usually erupt by the age of 23. Some wisdom teeth can become impacted and cause pain, meaning they do not erupt all the way and need to be extracted. Pain can include swelling, redness, throbbing and other symptoms that can cause discomfort. At My Creative Dentist we perform wisdom teeth removal Cos Cob and other dental techniques to help patients deal with any dental problem that comes their way.
We have an endodontist on staff to perform emergency root canals or emergency wisdom tooth removal when needed. If a tooth becomes decayed and the infected pulp is not handled, it can cause an abscess and infection, which can be dangerous. Most toothaches are caused by dental problems like cavities or cracked/fractured teeth. An exposed tooth root can also cause severe pain. Pain can range anywhere from mild to extremely painful. Wisdom teeth pain and removal can be uncomfortable if not handled right away either. If the tooth needs to be extracted, it can be done without discomfort and only very little bleeding.
Often an emergency wisdom tooth extraction is required for teeth that become impacted. If the wisdom teeth are impacted, it could cause facial swelling, infection and pain. The gum may also swell up. The teeth tend to erupt too close to the existing teeth, which causes crowding. Most people need to have wisdom teeth removal Cos Cob to avoid problems with them in the future. Severe discomfort and inflammation may be a sign that the teeth need to be extracted or are growing in crooked or impacted. At My Creative Dentist, we try to get our patients in as quickly as possible in order to treat painful symptoms and extract teeth if emergency measures are needed.
