Wisdom teeth, unfortunately, don’t get their name because they bring you greater wisdom. Actually, they got that name because they usually come in when people are in their late teens or early twenties. If increased brain power is not one of the symptoms of wisdom teeth, what are some of the symptoms?

If your wisdom teeth have erupted or come in, chances are you will probably notice that. But what about wisdom teeth that are impacted? Some indicators of impacted wisdom teeth include red, swollen, bleeding and tender gums. You may have pain or swelling in your jaw, bad breath, or problems moving your mouth. You may also experience problems behind your last molar.

If you have any of these symptoms, contact Dr. Nathan Lester at Wyoming Dental Specialties, in Evanston, Wyoming, right away. Even if you don’t have an issue with wisdom teeth, the doctor will address the cause of these symptoms.

When you visit us, the doctor will ask you about your symptoms and your overall health, conduct an exam and take x-rays to see if you have impacted wisdom teeth.

If you have any of the symptoms above, or if it is time to deal with your wisdom teeth, call Wyoming Dental Specialties today at 307-365-1472.
