I've been a patient with Dr. Quadri for many years. I wish I had found him sooner. He's very good at extractions and I think I would've had a better experience with my wisdom teeth removal here. I've switched my whole family to this office and many of my friends.

I went in for an emergency tooth extraction today and they were able to get me in fairly quickly. I couldn’t get to anybody for two days and I was in excruciating pain. Until I found this dentist. I’m terrified of needles and everybody who worked on me made sure to make me feel secure and safe. The dentist literally has a magic touch because I did not feel a needle at all. The extraction hurt mildly and it was so fast. They were decently priced. I think I will be coming to this dentist regularly. Thank you guys!

Can Wisdom Teeth Cause Headaches? What You Need to Do Right Now

Wisdom teeth are the last set of teeth that grow over young adulthood. Since the teeth do not develop until you reach 17 to 24 years, the wisdom teeth are often painful and can cause discomfort to the other teeth due to a lack of sufficient space to grow properly. 

Dentists say wisdom teeth can cause headaches and eye pain, but how? Sometimes they cause severe pain and ache, so removing them remains the best option. In this article, we find out whether tooth pain problems can cause pressure in the eye or headaches. 

How do Wisdom Teeth Cause Headaches? 

Your wisdom teeth grow improperly, which are considered as impacted. Impaction with wisdom teeth is common, mainly because there may not be sufficient space in the mouth for them to grow. 

Such impaction may result into:

  • Emerge at an angle 
  • Get stuck in the jaw 
  • Push against the other molars 

The growth of wisdom teeth in a mouth that does not have enough space for them can lead other teeth to shift, which may result in an improper bite. An improper bite will make your lower jaw compensate, and this can cause headaches and soreness. 

Dental conditions like temporomandibular joint dysfunction, also commonly referred to as TMJ disorder – TMJ is the connection point where the skull and the TMJ bone meet. The movement of these two bones may sometimes be abnormal because of dental problems like teeth grinding. In such cases, patients may experience headaches or eye pain. 

What is the Connection Between Teeth and Eyes?

Our oral health has a variety of effects on the eyes. For instance, the infections and the inflammation associated with periodontal disease can damage your jaw and gums and affect the optical nerve of your eyes. 

The same infections that cause eye pain can also affect your vision. Bacterial infections are likely to spread more easily from your mouth to other body parts- including your eyes – through your blood vessels. 

If the tissues of the eye socket get affected, it results in a condition called Orbital Cellulitis. If you do not treat it as soon as possible, orbital cellulitis causes a lot of pain in the eye area and can even lead to vision problems or blindness. 

Does Extraction of Wisdom Teeth Cause Eye Pain?

It is a popular myth that the extraction of wisdom teeth causes eye pain. However, it is not true; removing wisdom teeth does not affect the eyes. Dental procedures affecting the ophthalmic nerve are a rare complication. 

A problem with the bite or jaw alignment can tense the muscles of your face. Such muscle tension can cause headaches and include pain and pressure behind your eyes.

Other Issues Associated with Wisdom Teeth 

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause a few other problems that may eventually result in pain and headaches. Such problems include; 

  • Tooth decay 

Your partially impacted wisdom teeth are at a higher risk of getting decay.

  • Gum disease 

Partially erupted wisdom teeth are tough to clean. A mouth with improper hygiene becomes home to germs, and it can cause gum diseases like pericoronitis.  

  • Cysts 

Our wisdom grows in our jawbone in a sac. However, in some cases, the sac fills with fluid; then becomes a cyst, which can cause damage to the jawbone, nerves and teeth. 

How can You Take Care of Your Wisdom Teeth?

Apart from visiting your dentist regularly, you can follow the below-mentioned tips: 

  • Brush your teeth at least twice and a maximum of thrice a day

Take your time and clean all the areas that are difficult to reach, especially the back surfaces of your wisdom teeth. 

  • Floss your teeth once a day 

You can use floss or interproximal to clean your teeth. 

  • Use an antibacterial mouthwash. 

It helps reduce the risk of dry mouth. Ensure that it does not contain any alcohol content. 

Bottom Line

Dental conditions like TMJ disorder can cause headaches or eye pain. Wisdom teeth may exert pressure on muscles or nerves that can lead to migraine headaches. Nerve damage caused by growing wisdom teeth may also result in migraine symptoms. 

Various treatment options are available to get rid of wisdom teeth or the pain caused by them. Removal of wisdom teeth can permanently resolve the pain or other symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can removing wisdom teeth reduce headaches?
Ans. Your dentist will likely advise removing your wisdom teeth if they are painful. Not only will this relieve your headaches, but it will also help prevent damage to your other teeth if your wisdom teeth cannot erupt normally.

2. Do wisdom teeth grow back?
Ans. No, wisdom teeth do not regrow after extraction. However, someone could have more than the usual four wisdom teeth. Supernumerary teeth are extra teeth that may grow after your primary wisdom teeth have been removed.

3. How long does wisdom teeth surgery take?
Ans. Wisdom teeth removal, on average, can take one hour. However, complex cases might take longer.

4. How do you know if your wisdom teeth are infected?
Ans. Red, swollen gum close to the wisdom tooth is one sign of a gum infection from wisdom teeth. Other symptoms are edema in the face, sensitivity and suffering.
