Wisdom Tooth Dental Emergency

One of the most common dental emergencies causing wisdom tooth pain arise from deep cavities within a wisdom tooth.  In this case the wisdom tooth super-erupted because the lower wisdom tooth was missing.  For this reason we usually recommend extracting the upper and lower wisdom teeth at the same time.  As the wisdom tooth continues to erupt more food becomes trapped in-between teeth causing a cavity. 

In this patient the cavity had reached the nerve inside of the wisdom tooth causing severe pain.  Once the wisdom tooth was extracted the patient felt much better. 

Wisdom Tooth Cavity

In this situation the upper wisdom tooth was affected by a cavity because the patient could effectively clean the wisdom tooth.  Large cavities developed, which caused a lot of pain once they reached the nerve.
