The peak of this terrible night pain is that my cheeks are swollen. if you see this chronology, do you need wisdom teeth surgery ??? I am afraid to see a dentist, I have never seen a dentist at all
Thank you for the question.
Severe pain in the back teeth, to spread to the ears, head and jaw, accompanied by swollen teeth, can be caused by problems with wisdom teeth, or not. Wisdom teeth will generally experience an eruption at the age of 18 to 23 years. This eruption can not cause disturbing symptoms, but it can also cause pain, swelling, jaw stiffness, fever, chills, bad breath, sore throat, difficulty speaking, difficulty swallowing, and other more severe complaints. Usually, this severe complaint occurs when the wisdom teeth experience impaction, which is embedded deep in the structure of the jaw, gums, or crashing into the surrounding teeth, so that the difficulty experiencing an eruption.
In addition to wisdom teeth eruption, you may also experience complaints arising from other factors, such as gum abscesses, ginggivitis, cavities, pharyngitis, tonsillitis, peritonsillary abscesses, parotitis, sialadenitis, benign or malignant tumors in the oral cavity, and so on.
The good, get rid of your fears first, and check yourself directly to the dentist so that your condition can be further evaluated as possible causes, as well as finding the right treatment. In the meantime, what needs to be done is:
Overcome the pain first by taking paracetamol
Drink plenty of warm water
