Are the last molars referred to as wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth (or medically referred to as third molars) are the teeth that grow the last, which is generally at the age of 17-21 years. In the process of growing wisdom teeth, sometimes there can be pain like what you experience. This is caused by several possible causes such as:
The growth process of wisdom teeth is not yet complete, where the mucosal tissue has not fully opened (some of the teeth are still covered with gums) so that this condition can trigger pain. Tooth impaction occurs, namely wisdom teeth growth is blocked by other structures. Caries or infection of the wisdom teeth occur
To deal with pain that occurs during wisdom tooth growth as an initial treatment, you can take pain relievers such as paracetamol. An ice pack wrapped in a towel on the affected cheek area can also help relieve pain.
However, if the pain is getting worse, you should see a dentist so that it can be examined further. Through a physical examination and supporting tests if necessary (such as X-rays) the doctor will investigate the possibility of an underlying medical problem, so that appropriate treatment can be given according to the underlying cause.
To reduce the incidence of complaints, the following suggestions are what you can do:
Keep your teeth and mouth clean by brushing your teeth regularly, especially after eating and before going to bed Rinse with antibacterial mouthwash Use dental floss to clean between your teeth Reduce consumption of sweet foods and drinks
