Side Effects Of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
I just got my 4 impacted wisdom teeth removed on monday. 8/12 there's a bump on my cheek that formed and that side is swollen. Should i be worried?
Post op swelling: If the swelling occurred overnight on the day the wisdom teeth were removed, and it's going down each day, it's probably normal. If the swelling has increased then you definitely need to call the surgeon and let him\her know. It might be infected. No matter what, we cannot tell you for sure what's going on. Therefore you need to call your surgeon right away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
An impacted tooth is one that is for one of many reasons unable to erupt into the oral cavity: they may be vertical, horizontal, in bone, impacted in soft tissue (gum/gingiva), it may be due to local pathology i.e. Proximity to an extra tooth or undifferentiated mass of tooth like tissue or an "odontoma", it can be due to crowding, and usually it is a wisdom tooth that lacks ...Read more

5 days ago removed two impacted wisdom teeth. Left side is healing great, while the right has a swollen lymph node on the jaw. Slight throbbing :( ?
Infection: The swollen lymph node is a good indicator of infection. If you got antobiotics from the sutgeon the day of your surgery and have been taking them then they may not be effective. If not then call them and ask for a prescription. Either way this problem needs to be addressed asap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a yellow lump on the back of my throat and a swollen gland & earache on the same side. Possible impacted wisdom teeth -connected? ++throat pain
Possibly: Impact wisdom teeth probably do not cause crowding of the teeth in the front, because the wisdom teeth would need to push on the 2nd molar, 1st molar, 2nd premolar, 1st premolar, canine and the incisors. Some people believe the wisdom teeth do cause the crowding but people without the wisdom teeth can still get crowding in the front teeth. Sometimes the wisdom teeth cause damage to the 2nd molars. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it better to get my impacted tooth and all of my impacted wisdom teeth out at the same time or separately?
All at once: There isn't a real advantage to only getting out one or two. You'll have multiple healing times, plus the additional expense of lost time at work, anesthesia fees, etc. Generally you won't have a lot more soreness with two vs all four. I recommend one procedure so one healing time. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
PAIN: People with true pain will often go to great lengths to remove the source. Having teeth close together without pain would not be considered clinically important and thus not drive one to have the teeth pulled. Timed removal of select, paired lower and upper teeth during the pre-teen or teen years may prevent the wisdom teeth from becoming impacted & decrease the need later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
