Wisdom Teeth Symptoms – What to Watch For Torrance, CA

Wisdom Teeth Symptoms – What to Watch For

Oral Surgery Patient

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t want to think about your wisdom teeth too much until they start causing problems. But in order to catch any issues early and deal with them more easily, it helps to know what the signs of impacted wisdom teeth are. Here are some of the most common warning signs that you or your teen may have impacted wisdom teeth.

Sore or Swollen Gums

Are your gums sore, swollen, or irritated in the back of your mouth? Does it feel like food is always getting caught behind your back teeth? You might have an erupting or partially-impacted wisdom tooth.

Jaw Pain and Swelling

Some people experience pain or discomfort in their jaws, while others simply notice a difference in how their mouth feels when it’s closed. The extra pressure of impacted wisdom teeth inside of your gums and bone can lead to inflammation or discomfort closer to your jaw joints. In most cases, swelling or discomfort tends to come and go at first. But over time the discomfort becomes steady and persistent.

Teeth Moving or Shifting Out of Alignment

The pressure of wisdom teeth can cause the neighboring teeth to shift out of place.  If you or your teen previously wore braces, the changes in your bite alignment can be a major concern. Unless addressed, impacted wisdom teeth may continue to push on your smile and lead to crowding.

Wisdom Teeth Consultations

If you’re experiencing symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth, consider making an appointment with Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center right away. Limited appointments are still available now through the end of the year.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

  • Mindy W.

    This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

  • Raj G.

    Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

  • Chahab S.

    Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

  • Paul M.

    A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
