Wisdom Teeth Removal in Denver, CO

Are you experiencing discomfort or swelling in the back of your mouth? It could be your wisdom teeth causing trouble. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25, although the timing can vary. Some individuals may experience the eruption of wisdom teeth earlier or later, and others may not develop them.

Regular dental check-ups and X-rays are crucial to monitor the development of wisdom teeth, particularly during the late teenage years and early adulthood. These check-ups allow dentists to evaluate the position, alignment, and potential impact of wisdom teeth on your oral health and determine if removal is necessary. At Smile Studio Dental, we offer expert wisdom teeth removal that can be performed under local anesthesia or sedation to ensure your comfort.

Don’t let wisdom teeth pain disrupt your life. Contact Smile Studio Dental today to schedule a consultation. From your initial visit to post-operative care, we’ll support you every step of the way towards a healthier, more comfortable smile.

  • How do I know if my wisdom teeth need removed?

    Signs that your wisdom teeth may need to be removed include:

    • Pain or discomfort in the back of your mouth.
    • Difficulty opening your mouth or chewing.
    • Swelling or tenderness around the gums.
    • Crowding or shifting of nearby teeth.
    • Difficulty brushing or flossing the area.
    • Frequent infections or inflammation around the wisdom teeth.
    • Development of cysts or gum disease around the wisdom teeth.

    If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s important to consult with a dentist for an evaluation. They can determine if your wisdom teeth need removal and recommend the best course of action for your oral health. Regular dental check-ups and X-rays can also help identify potential issues with your wisdom teeth before they cause symptoms.

  • Can wisdom teeth cause ear pain or jaw pain?

    Yes, wisdom teeth can sometimes cause ear pain. When wisdom teeth are impacted or erupting improperly, they can exert pressure on surrounding tissues, including the jawbone, gums, and nearby nerves. This pressure can radiate to other areas of the head and face, including the ears, leading to discomfort or pain.

    If wisdom teeth become infected or inflamed, a condition known as pericoronitis, the infection can spread to nearby tissues, including the ears, causing pain and discomfort.

    Contact us if you’re experiencing ear pain and other symptoms such as jaw pain, difficulty opening your mouth, or swelling in the back of your mouth. We can determine if your wisdom teeth cause your symptoms and recommend appropriate treatment to alleviate your pain and improve your oral health.
