Inner Cheek Pain When Wisdom Teeth Grow Out?
hello, the last 3 days I have been bothered by pain in the inner cheek, and after I saw it turned out that there was a small wound like an incision, and the color of the surrounding mucosa became a little pale white, I think the incision was caused because the upper wisdom tooth grew slightly oblique. where the crown is attached to the cheek. This made it difficult for me to chew food because when I chewed my teeth, my teeth immediately came into contact with the inner cheek that was injured. Is there any medication for pain relief, and should I remove the wisdom tooth? Thank you in advance
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Wisdom teeth growth in the wrong direction, which is tilted towards the inner cheek, can indeed cause painful sores. These wounds can also be used as a good place for pathogenic (disease-causing) microorganisms to breed. As a result, the wound can become watery, purulent, whitish, expanded, and is more difficult to heal. It could also be that a wound resembling an incision that you experience on the inner cheek occurs due to a yeast infection, vitamin C deficiency, Herpes simplex, Herpes zoster, bites, syphilis, and so on.
To overcome this condition, the main cause of the wound itself must be addressed. In this case, the inappropriately positioned wisdom tooth must be extracted. Because, if this is not done, then complaints can continue to recur in the future even though it has been healed.
Therefore, you can check with your doctor first. The doctor will evaluate the condition of your teeth and mouth to ascertain whether your complaint is purely caused by wisdom teeth irritating the oral cavity. Furthermore, the doctor can give you temporary treatment to deal with complaints of wounds on your inner cheeks. Then, you can be directed to the dentist for further treatment.
Currently, you should be more diligent in brushing your teeth and then gargling with salt water. In this way, it is hoped that disease-causing microorganisms and inflammation in the oral cavity due to wisdom tooth irritation can subside and complaints will improve. In addition, you are also advised to limit your consumption of foods that are too acidic, too hard, and too spicy. Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables, especially those that contain lots of vitamin C. Avoid smoking, alcohol consumption, and also free sex which causes you to be more at risk of sexually transmitted infections, including those whose symptoms can appear in the oral cavity.
Hope this helps ..
