Damage an Untreated Impacted Tooth Can Cause

Posted on 2/25/2019 by Front Office
Damage an Untreated Impacted Tooth Can CauseAn impacted tooth is one that has not come in all the way. Often the tooth will give you problems, but what if there is no pain?

Can you just leave it alone? You should always see us and follow our advice when it comes to an impacted tooth. Here are some things that could happen if an impacted tooth is left untreated.

Damage Your Teeth and Jaw

An impacted tooth often did come in all the way because there is not enough room in the jaw. That means that your jaw will still be crowded if you leave the tooth alone. This could hurt your other teeth, as well as affecting your alignment and your bite.

Gum Disease

If the impacted tooth is still there, it can hurt more than just your jaw and other teeth. Your gums could end up sore as well. You could end up with painful swollen gums, as well as extra bleeding. This will make it hard to eat, and it could even be painful to talk.

Dental Abscess

An impacted tooth could lead to an abscess in your mouth. This is a small pocket of pus in your gums right next to the tooth. If left untreated, an abscess could lead to an infection. That could spread not only through your mouth, but also through your entire body. An abscess can be dangerous, you do not want to take a chance.

Tooth Decay

An impacted tooth could become decayed over time. This will lead to pain, bad breath, and other problems.

If you have an impacted tooth, do not ignore it. You need to make an appointment so that we can take care of it right away. We would like to talk to you about your options and take care of the tooth so you will not have any additional problems.
