Dealing with impacted wisdom teeth can be a very painful experience. When people have wisdom tooth removals, it can alleviate the symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth. While most wisdom tooth removals are successfully performed, sometimes complications can occur after the surgery has been completed. Here are the complications that can occur after people have their wisdom tooth removals in Mission Viejo, CA.


What Are The Complications That Can Occur After Wisdom Tooth Removals?

After having wisdom tooth removals in Mission Viejo, CA, the following complications may occur:

Dry Socket Or Exposure Of The Bone:

Dry socket or exposure of the bone occurs when a blood clot that should form over the socket where the tooth was removed either becomes dislodged or is dissolved. This fully exposes the area of bone where the extraction occurred. Anything from air, to food or beverages can severely irritate the area, resulting in pain and discomfort.


An infection can occur in the socket, where the wisdom tooth was removed, due to trapped food causing harmful bacteria to form in the space of the extraction. This can even result in gum disease that can affect surrounding teeth and result in more tooth loss if it is left untreated.


Damage to nearby teeth, nerves, jawbones, or sinuses can occur after wisdom teeth are removed.
