Does My Wisdom Tooth Hurt When I Get On An Airplane?
Afternoon, I want to ask, is it true that if our teeth have problems when riding a plane will experience pain? besides, I plan to pull out my wisdom teeth after returning from my vacation. My lower wisdom tooth grows, but it irritates the tooth in front of it and cavities, while my upper wisdom tooth breaks. thanks
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Tooth pain when at high altitude can be called aerodontalgia. This condition occurs due to changes in pressure that is too high. This condition can be attributed to some individuals who have risk factors for dental pain during flight, namely abnormalities in tooth structure, or abnormalities in the dental pulp.
The expected cause of dental pata that is damaged by edema and hyperthermia of the dental pulp that can cause necrosis, changes in air pressure inside the tooth can also cause pain when there is an adjustment of air pressure inside the tooth with external confusion. Pain can also occur due to indirect stimulation of the superior alveolar nerve due to changes in air pressure in the sinuses in the face. Pain often arises during high altitude and is often experienced in upper teeth (1).
It is recommended to see a dentist regarding your complaint for further examination and management related to your condition. Avoid taking medication alone without doctor's instructions.
Hopefully this information can help you,
