Ailments with wisdom teeth growing out
Eights, that is, wisdom teeth generally arise between 16. a 25. year of life. This happens to most people, although some eights may appear later in life or not at all.
Wisdom teeth eruption can be a smooth process, almost imperceptible, although it is most often accompanied by a number of unpleasant ailments. Most of these symptoms are due to improper arrangement of eights and a lack of space in the mouth for their proper growth. Then they grow at the wrong angle, by pressing on adjacent teeth or pinching the cheek.
Ailments accompanying the growth of wisdom teeth are primarily gum pain in the area of the erupting tooth, radiating to the ears, whether throat and almonds, and also migraines, throbbing headaches. There is also redness and swelling of the gums and severe pain where the tooth breaks through the gum tissue, intensifying when touched, pressure, biting and leaning. There is also trismus - severe pain when opening the mouth.
An improperly grown tooth causes discomfort inside the mouth, and even pain when eating and speaking, because it catches the inner wall of the cheek and causes chewing on its inner tissue while eating food.
Others, fever is the more dangerous symptoms of emerging eights, joint pain or enlarged lymph nodes.
Properly grown wisdom teeth can fulfill their functions properly for many years, however, due to their problematic position, they make it difficult to maintain oral hygiene. They are prone to tooth decay and infections, that can spread to adjacent teeth.
Treatment of eights is sometimes impossible due to limited availability and also ineffective, because it is in the area of the eights that hard-to-remove food remains accumulate, which are a frequent cause of recurrence of caries and inflammation.
Home remedies for pain relief can be used to alleviate the symptoms of wisdom teeth that are growing out. One of them is applying a cold compress to your cheek or sucking on an ice cube. Rinsing the mouth with an infusion of herbs also helps, for example, chamomile, sage or cloves. Cooling emulsions and gels applied directly to the sore spot also bring relief.
To ensure the safety of the remaining teeth and permanent pain relief, eighth extracts are often used. The procedure is more risky than the removal of any of the remaining teeth. Moreover, it is more complicated- requires proper preparation, including taking a series of x-rays. Wisdom teeth extraction can also lead to serious complications, due to heavy bleeding, severe pain and swelling for up to several days after the procedure.
