Preparing for your appointment

By Mayo Clinic Staff

If you're experiencing symptoms or other dental problems that may indicate an impacted wisdom tooth, see your dentist as soon as possible.

Your dentist may ask you these questions:

  • What symptoms are you experiencing?
  • When did your symptoms begin?
  • Does anything worsen symptoms, such as chewing toward the back of your mouth?
  • Have you noticed any bleeding while brushing or flossing your teeth?
  • What are your typical teeth-cleaning habits?
