My Wisdom Teeth are Causing a Lot of Pain. What Can I Do?

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello,

A few months ago, I went to the dentist as my wisdom teeth were causing a lot of pain. They took x-rays and found out that all four of my wisdom teeth were growing wonky and into the teeth in front. They said as the teeth have not yet broken the gums, there is not anything they can do yet.

Recently, my wisdom teeth have become painful again and is very uncomfortable. I have also notice a gap appearing between my two front teeth which is causing the skin inside my mouth to become sore as it keeps getting caught in the gap and is making sores in my mouth. I don’t know what to do as it is very painful but I do not want to go back to that dentist as they have said they won’t do anything.

Please can you let me know what can be done as I am worried the gap is just going to get bigger and my wisdom teeth more painful.

Thank you.

I Have Four Impacted Wisdom Teeth. Should I Have One Removed Even Though It’s Likely To Cause Root Resorption?

Thursday, October 16th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I have two questions, the first regarding an implant: Is there any risk of nerve damage even with the use of a CT scan?  And one when it comes to the wisdom teeth: I am 23 years old and I have 4 mesial impacted wisdom teeth. I believe that they are fully surrounded by bone. A dental surgeon told me that one of them is causing minor bone damage around the 2nd molar. Is that the equivalent to root resorption? Is this a valid reason for extraction even though bone would have to be taken to extract the wisdom tooth? How much do wisdom teeth typically move at my age and will they likely/inevitably cause root resorption of the 2nd molar since they are impacted and there is not space for them to erupt? Does the likelihood of these problems, justify extracting them now even though I am experiencing no symptoms, just to avoid the increased extraction risks?

Is It Viable To Use A Previously Extracted Tooth As A Crown For My Back Molars. Has This Ever Been Done Before.

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014
Q.

Hello. Is it viable to use one’s own wisdom teeth (previously extracted) to create crowns for the back molars? Would the tooth remain strong? Stronger than the traditional metal casing cap added porcelain? Could the wisdom tooth be drilled out and the cap mould poured into the wisdom tooth? Would it survive longer than the average 10-15 years? Rather the 50 plus years I expect to need it? The fit would be great since I recently found three wisdom teeth and I may need crowns on the back upper and lower molars they need to be a perfect bite match. Very curious to find out if this has been tried and what the success rates are if so. Thank you.

I Have Chipped and Broken Teeth. What Can Be Done?

Friday, September 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes. I have lost one wisdom tooth and another is half broken. Most of my teeth are chipping off and they have holes in them. My dentist has given me a special toothpaste to use but there’s been no improvement since I started using that and all he does with the the second chipped wisdom tooth is fill it with a white paste. I’m only 34 years old and I don’t know what to do, but what can you tell me about this? What is wrong and how can I repair them? Also, how much will it cost please? This is so depressing, I don’t know what to do. Please help and give me some advice. Thank you in advance.

I Have An Impacted Tooth On The Upper Left Side. Can This Be Easily Removed? I May Need My Wisdom Teeth Removed Also.

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Gambroudes, I have an impacted tooth on the left side on my upper gums. My wisdom teeth have also not been removed yet. I don’t know if that has had an impact on the way they have to be removed. I want to get this extra tooth removed as soon as possible. I also haven’t had a dentist appointment in a while. I have heard from some that it is not possible but I have also heard that it is possible. I am undecided I need to ask someone who actually knows what they are talking about. Can this easily be removed?

How Much Does It Cost To Have A Wisdom Tooth Removed? My Teeth Are Infected And Need To Be Removed.

Thursday, August 28th, 2014
Q.

How much is it to have a wisdom tooth and the tooth next to it removed? I have this problem now and I can’t wait any longer to have it done. My wisdom tooth has come out at an angle and has pushed against my other tooth creating a hole and the nerve is right next to it. Both teeth are infected I am on antibiotics now and it has been 48 hours of me taking the antibiotics it is causing a lot of pain. I can’t eat or sleep and the pain killers don’t help at all I’m finding it hard to work.

My Wisdom Tooth Is Very Brittle But I’m Scared Of What Will Happen. What Should I Do?

Thursday, June 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I have a wisdom tooth on the left of my jaw. It is quite broken and parts of it are down to the gum-line. It has a hole in the middle where my filing has fallen out and it is very brittle and breaks a lot. I’m currently in a lot of pain with it and need to visit the dentist but I’m very scared of the dentist. What will happen? Will it be painful? Will they have to pull my tooth out and as I’m scared it will hurt will they be able to give me anything? I hope you can help me understand what will happen. Thank you.

I’m In Agony With My Wisdom Tooth. I’ve Tried Painkillers But My Dental Appointment Is Days Away. What Can I Do?

Thursday, June 5th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Mark Hughes. I need your help or advice. I’m in agony with my right wisdom tooth and the right bottom tooth. I have a hole in the tooth and it’s so painful I can’t sleep, I’ve tried everything to relieve the pain until my dental appointment. It’s five days away and I don’t think I can wait that long, I’ve been taking regular painkillers, salt water and even ice on the cheek but nothing is helping. Please help me in having many sleepless nights because of this. Thank you for your time, I hope you can help me.

An X-ray Showed My Wisdom Tooth Inclining. It’s Starting To Hurt. Is There Anything That Can Be Other Than Extracting It?

Friday, May 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I’ve got wisdom tooth in below right jaw
and it is hurting a lot. On X-ray it showed it is becoming inclined and it is touching the teeth either side. My dentist says I should go for surgery and remove the wisdom tooth since it is inclined and can cause harm to next teeth. Should I go for surgery and remove it or should I wait for some time for pain to go?  I am scared of surgery so I’m wondering if there is any possibility of avoiding it? Also, I’d like to know if the wisdom tooth will keep pushing and hurting in future?

Thank you.

I Had Two Out Of Three Wisdom Teeth Removed. Now The Remaining One Is Starting To Throb. What Should I Do?

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. Around 2 years ago I had 2 (out of 3) wisdom teeth removed surgically. The other remaining tooth was not pulled due to the nerve running through the root and on the surgeons recommendation it not be removed. 2 weeks ago I began to feel some pressure at the back of my mouth and irritation and throbbing, I visited my normal dentist who cleaned the area and suggested it would be okay with good management, two weeks on it has flared up again and is not so much painful but uncomfortable, like there is food stuck and pressure in the rear of my mouth. Do you have any suggestions to treatment?
