“The pain started in the evening and after an awful night, I woke up in the morning in floods of tears. I didn’t know why my gums or teeth were in so much pain – never experienced anything like it. Felt like a cut, or something under the gum. So booked emergency appointment with Maida (my regular dentist anyway) but it was just wisdom teeth struggling to come through. All sorted and happy again now!”
There’s not enough room in the jaw for them to erupt or develop normally. However, in some cases, the wisdom tooth could be growing at a wrong angle, which can cause more problems and pain when they’re pushing through.
In the cases, where impacted wisdom teeth are causing you a huge amount of pain, the usual recommendation is for them to be surgically extracted, which usually costs from £300.
When there is a problem with erupting wisdom teeth and it’s left ignored, the retained tooth can develop an abscess, which a progressive infection causing it’s own issues.
