Common symptoms include:

  • Jaw pain
  • Headaches
  • Swelling of gums around wisdom teeth area
  • Swelling around the jaw
  • Unpleasant taste in mouth
  • Bad breath
  • Inability to fully open mouth

Sometimes a person can experience episodes of discomfort and relief. Even though you may experience some days or even months of relief, once the wisdom teeth start to become bothersome, they will continue to stay that way until they are treated. It is best to consult your dentist as soon as you experience any of these symptoms to have the area assessed and treatment completed.
