Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain as a result of infection of either the gums around the wisdom tooth or decay of the wisdom tooth as they are extremely difficult to clean being so far back in the mouth.
If left untreated, the infections can spread and become quite serious.
Usually these wisdom teeth will be required to be surgically extracted.
Here at Abel & David Wan Dental Practice Forest Lake we ensure all extractions are performed where patient is completely numb throughout the procedure feeling absolutely no pain.
We recommend frequent checkups to spot for any abnormalities with wisdom teeth
