NAPERVILLE, IL, January 11, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ —
As you may know, wisdom teeth are the last teeth that emerge in your mouth. In general, they emerge between the ages of 17 to 25. But in some cases, it can emerge even later and about 1 in 5 adults do not get them at all. The four number of wisdom teeth are the third set of molars and appear at the furthest end of the upper and lower gums. Quite often, due to the lack of space, these teeth can emerge at an odd angle or only emerge partially. In such cases, they are termed as impacted wisdom teeth.
A wisdom tooth can give rise to a number of problems. Firstly, they can push against the adjacent molar which can lead to wisdom tooth pain or infection. In some rare cases, they can result in the formation of a cyst within the jawbone. This can damage the jawbone, teeth, and the surrounding nerves. Moreover, partially impacted wisdom teeth are harder to reach and clean properly. This can result in a decay in the area due to the trapped bacteria. Also, a wisdom tooth can cause pericoronitis, a painful inflammation of the gums.
The dentist thoroughly inspects the condition and takes an X-ray image of the tooth. When there is no impacted tooth, a few painkillers can help in wisdom teeth pain relief. If wisdom teeth extraction is needed, a small surgery is conducted by using a local anesthetic and the dentist removes the tooth after the socket is enlarged by applying some pressure. In some cases, the tooth is cut into smaller pieces before removal. There is usually some swelling and discomfort after the surgery that lasts for a few days.
