How To Deal With Tooth Impaction?
How about the pathophysiology of impacted teeth?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will answer your questions.
Impaction tooth is the medical term for a tooth that is buried in the gum and cannot get out. Generally, impacted teeth are caused by the surface area of the gum which is too narrow for the buried tooth space, so it cannot get out.
Impacts are common in adult wisdom teeth (3rd molar). These molars appear only once in the age range 17-20 years, without the milk tooth phase.
Wisdom teeth, which are located at the very back of the jaw, are quite large, like other molars. This size is often not matched by the size of the appropriate teething space. As a result, the teeth usually grow sideways, or even horizontally. These flat teeth may not cause any symptoms initially. However, over time these teeth can push against the front teeth and cause the following symptoms:
The teeth in front of them become untidy due to the impulse of flat impacted teeth. Pain in the jaw. Difficult to open the mouth. Headache. Swollen and red gums around the impacted teeth. If the above complaints arise, you should immediately consult a dentist for further examination and treatment. The main management of this impacted tooth case is the removal of the buried tooth through wisdom tooth surgery.
This impacted condition can cause complications such as irregular tooth arrangement, damage to the nerves around the teeth, gum inflammation, gum or tooth abscess, the formation of dental plaque, and tooth loss.
So many explanations from me, hopefully helpful and useful.
