Signs Your Impacted Tooth Needs to Come Out

Posted on 5/15/2019 by Palisades Surgical Arts
Signs Your Impacted Tooth Needs to Come OutHaving an impacted tooth is more than just a painful condition. Left untreated, an impacted tooth can seriously affect your overall health. But, how do you know if you have an impacted tooth that should be removed? Here are some signs that it may be time to have your tooth removed.

Persistent Bad Breath

When you have an impacted tooth, one of the classic signs is chronic bad breath. This is because you have an infection in the mouth, and the elevated levels of bacteria are contributing to the halitosis. Along those lines, if you have a persistent unpleasant or foul taste in your mouth, it could be a sign that you have an impacted tooth. Come see us right away for a close examination.

Improper Jaw Function

If you are having a hard time opening and closing your mouth correctly, there is a very good chance that the cause is an impacted tooth. What's more, it is affecting more than just your mouth, so it is something that needs to be examined as quickly as possible. In the event that it's not an impacted tooth, you will want to know so you can look for other causes; in the event that it is an impacted tooth, early discovery will be a key part of a speedy recovery.

Gum Tissue That is Swollen or Red

If your gum tissue appears to be reddened and/or swollen, it could be because of an impacted tooth. The tooth could be causing an infection in the gum tissue and is something that needs to be examined as soon as possible.
