Experiencing that pain in the lower jaw? Could be a sign that your wisdom teeth have erupted or have become impacted and need to be removed.
According to our own, Board Certified Oral Surgeon, Dr. Junil Ahn, the average mouth has inadequate room for third molars, also known as wisdom teeth. Because of this problem, wisdom teeth usually are not able to erupt properly into the mouth. In short, if a wisdom tooth doesn't have room to grow it may become impacted, resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, and you'll likely need to have it removed. Numerous scientific studies have shown that even in fully erupted wisdom teeth, the bacteria and periodontal condition are unhealthy. It is recommended to have the wisdom teeth removed prior to these problems arising.
