What Potential Complications Can Arise From Wisdom Teeth Removal?

Although wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure and considered safe, potential complications can occur. If you have any concerns following an extraction do not hesitate to consult with your dentist.

Key takeaways:

– Dry socket is a complication resulting from the blood clot from the extraction not forming properly or being dislodged.

– Symptoms of an infection include persistent swelling, increasing pain and a bad taste in the mouth.

– Some people may experience excessive bleeding and should consult their dentist with any concerns.

“You’ll need to be treated by your dentist for an infection; an antibiotic will usually suffice if the infection is caught early enough.”
