Flashing a bright smile is the best way to create an excellent first impression on anyone. For this reason, many people go to great lengths to ensure that their teeth look perfect. However, dental problems can still arise at any moment, no matter how well taken care of our teeth are. One excellent example of this is wisdom teeth growth.

Wisdom teeth are located deep in the back of your jaw, behind your other teeth. While they are commonly removed, they still can create issues and lead to uncomfortable conditions. They also tend to be very painful and ruin your teeth, so it's advisable to get them removed as soon as possible.

If you don't know when to get wisdom teeth removed, here are some of the most common signs:

#1 - You Feel Pain at the Back of Your Mouth

If you feel pain at the back of your mouth, you could have a wisdom tooth issue. Pain at the back of your mouth can be caused by one of two problems. It could be that you have a wisdom tooth coming in, or it could be that you have some sort of infection. This can be caused by bacteria or food that gets stuck in your wisdom teeth and creates an infection.

#2 - Inflammation of Gums

If you have swollen gums, it could be that you have a wisdom tooth issue. When your wisdom teeth begin to grow, they need to make space for themselves. The process causes inflammation, which will make your gums swell. If the swelling doesn't go away naturally or is too severe, you should see a dental professional determine the cause.

#3 - Bleeding Gums

If you notice that you are bleeding from your gums, it could be caused by growing wisdom teeth. The tooth's pressure on your gums can lead to bleeding and pain. If it lasts for more than a few days, you should make an appointment to see a dentist.

#4 - Mouth Cysts Form

If you have a wisdom tooth that's growing in but isn't going down, it can cause cysts to form. Cysts are transparent sacs that develop to protect the growing tooth. They can cause a great deal of pain and discomfort, so it's best to be proactive and get the tooth removed.

#5 - You Experience Headaches or Earaches

Many people don't know that growing wisdom teeth can cause headaches and earaches. The pressure the teeth put on your teeth and jaw can cause severe headaches and earaches. If this happens to you, you should see a dentist to ensure that your wisdom teeth are coming in correctly.

#6 - Your Jaw Feels Stiff

Having a stiff jaw is another sign that your wisdom teeth aren't developing correctly. The pressure that the growing tooth is causing can lead to your jaw becoming stiff, making it hard for you to swallow or even talk.

In some cases, you may even have trouble opening your mouth. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should seek the help of a dentist.

#7 - You Experience Sinus Issues

When wisdom teeth grow in your upper jaw, it can cause problems with your sinuses. Your wisdom teeth are located under your sinuses and cause pressure to build up in them. This can lead to severe sinus issues.

Furthermore, it can also cause congestion and pain. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you should see a dentist immediately.

#8 - Your Teeth Are Crooked or Overcrowded

Of course, one of the biggest signs that you need to get your wisdom teeth removed is that your teeth are crooked or overcrowded. When wisdom teeth don't develop correctly, they can cause issues with your other teeth. This can lead to crowded and crooked teeth.


If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should see a dentist. The sooner you get your wisdom teeth removed, the better it will be for you. Just remember to take care of your teeth right after the procedure to ensure that you don't experience these problems again.
