Can wisdom tooth affects our jaw movement. Speaking opening n closing of mouth. Is it painful to remove wisdom tooth.

10 Doctors Answered
Yes wisdom tooth with infection leads to restricted jaw movements. Its not at all painful to remove any tooth. Anaesthesia should be given effectively.
No it is not painful to remove the wisdom tooth, see an experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon in person.
Yes. It is completely possible for the wisdom tooth/teeth to affect the jaw movements. Removal of wisdom teeth by a skilled dental surgeon or an oral and maxillo-facial surgeon is generally tolerable. You might have some swelling for next two three days after the procedure. But if its giving you trouble while chewing, opening of mouth it would be best if you get it removed.

Yes it affects. It is not painful if anesthesia is given properly. Minimal or no pain during removal but after removing you have to tske medicines for pain.
Yes ... It is basically a surgical procedure ... And would require .. an x-ray ..the procedure would be done under local anaesthesia .. and if required you may get stitches placed ..
Upper wisdom teeth that are outwardly placed may hinder jaw movement and cause muscle soreness. Lower wisdom teeth, when infected ,may also make mouth opening painful. Removal of wisdom tooth should not be painful as your dental surgeon will numb out the area completely and prescribe analgesics to control the discomfort post extraction. Sometimes a little bit of bone may be obstructing your wisdom tooth and may have to be guttered to facilitate removal of the tooth but yet again, there is nothing to worry. If your wisdom tooth is causing adverse symptoms, go ahead with its extraction.
Yes it can cause pain.
It's like normal extraction, nothing to worry about, it doesn't cause any jaw movement.
Wisdom teeth usually make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 21, though it's possible for them to push through earlier or later. Referred to as your "third molars," these four teeth begin to push through the skin like any other tooth, which can cause pain. However, wisdom teeth are much more likely to grow in at an incorrect angle – even sideways – causing impaction that can radiate this pain to the teeth in front of it. Kindly get it extracted as soon as possible.
