Sadly, wisdom teeth have caused pain for many of our patients. Do you have wisdom teeth or third molars? Have you observed any pain in your oral cavity where a third molar would be? If so, you should get in touch with us to pencil in an examination for you. Here are some things you can do to hamper the pain associated with wisdom teeth.
If you have a small, swollen flap or area of gum tissue behind the wisdom tooth, you will probably experience pain when biting down on it. To resolve this, our dentists, Dr. Ross and Dr. Chimel, can get rid of the tissue. You can also consider changing the tilt of your toothbrush to lessen the number of times you contact that area, and you should floss this area carefully but often to make sure that it remains healthy and as unswollen as possible. However, if the pain from the wisdom tooth becomes serious or lasts for an extended amount of time, it may be necessary to have it removed. If this is the case, we will provide you numbing agents to ease the pain from surgery and make you as comfortable as possible during the operation.
Pencil in your appointment with Dr. Susan Chmiel by dialing 414-525-0300, and the Drs. Susan Chmiel & Rachel Bohn staff in Franklin, Wisconsin, will help you. We’re happy to see you.
