Impacted Tooth


A tooth becomes impacted when there is not enough room to accommodate the space in the dental arch for the growing tooth.

After surgery to remove an impacted tooth, mild discomfort and some swelling is expected. This is part of the healing process and should not alarm you.

You may use cold compresses to alleviate any swelling. In addition, your doctor will prescribe pain medication, which should be taken as directed.

Patients also are advised to be gentle with the extraction area and to modify their diet for a few days to allow for proper healing.
