Understanding Impacted Teeth: Causes and Symptoms

At Paradise Dental Studio, we are committed to providing our patients with clear, comprehensive information. Impacted teeth occur when new teeth cannot fully emerge into their expected positions in the mouth, often due to a lack of space in the jaw or the teeth growing in at an awkward angle. 

Wisdom teeth are the teeth that are affected by impacted teeth the most frequently, although others can also be impacted. 

Symptoms can include pain, swelling, and difficulty opening the mouth, though sometimes impacted teeth may be asymptomatic and only detected through dental X-rays.

Health Risks Associated with Untreated Impacted Teeth

Untreated, impacted teeth can lead to various health risks. These risks include infection or cyst formation around the impacted tooth, damage to neighboring teeth, and alignment issues with the other teeth. 

In some cases, untreated, impacted teeth can lead to more serious conditions, like the development of tumors or cysts that can cause significant damage to the jawbone and teeth. Recognizing and addressing impacted teeth early is crucial for maintaining oral health.

Identifying and Diagnosing Impacted Teeth

Identifying and diagnosing impacted teeth is crucial in ensuring proper dental care. Paradise Dental Studio uses advanced imaging techniques such as digital X-rays and CT scans to identify impacted teeth and assess their position accurately. 

During regular check-ups, our dentists look for signs of impaction, such as swollen or tender gums, and perform thorough examinations, especially for teens and young adults, the age group most commonly affected by impacted wisdom teeth.

Advanced Treatment Options for Impacted Teeth

When it comes to treating impacted teeth, we at Paradise Dental Studio offer a range of advanced solutions. The treatment plan typically depends on the severity and position of the impaction. 

In many cases, surgical tooth extraction is recommended to prevent potential complications. Our dental professionals are skilled in performing these procedures with minimal discomfort, using the latest techniques as well as other apparatus to guarantee the patient’s safety and comfort.

Post-Treatment Care and Prevention of Impacted Teeth

After the treatment of impacted teeth, proper post-treatment care is essential for a smooth recovery. This includes following a soft diet, maintaining oral hygiene gently around the surgical site, and adhering to any prescribed medication regimen. Dental examinations should be performed on a regular basis in order to monitor the development of the teeth and jaw to prevent future impactions, particularly in younger patients. Our team at Paradise Dental Studio provides continuous support and direction to our patients as part of our commitment to delivering throughout their dental journey.
