Have you been experiencing pain where your wisdom teeth are? We’ve put together a few signs you might need your wisdom teeth removed.

Sensitivity: The first and very obvious sign that you might need your wisdom teeth removed is sensitivity and pain in the back of your mouth. You could experience this pain at all times of the day or when you are eating or brushing your teeth. If this is happening, it’s best to get them checked out!

Stiffness: Your wisdom teeth can cause your teeth to shift, which in turn can cause your jaw to be very stiff. If you are experiencing limitations when you are trying to open your mouth to eat you should get them checked out.

Inflammation: When you wisdom teeth try to break through your gums they can cause some serious inflammation in the area. If your gum line is swollen, red and hurt to touch you should get your wisdom teeth looked at.

If you are experiencing any of these signs and symptoms it’s best to contact your dentist and have your wisdom teeth looked at!
