Management Of Wisdom Teeth That Appear Partially?
Good night. I am currently experiencing pain due to wisdom teeth in the right jaw. When going to see a dentist, the doctor says the gums are swollen / infected on the right side. There are also 2 teeth that are broken and rotten and one of them is in the left jaw right next to the youngest graham below. The doctor suggested pulling out the left rotten tooth first because the youngest graham had already come out in part even though the condition was tilted and the painful one was torturing the right one. I was given antibiotics and diclofenac to relieve the pain of the right gum and returned again to get a referral to the hospital so I could get further treatment. I wanted to ask, why does the first one have to pull out the graham rotten teeth first? Why am I not recommended for right wisdom teeth odontectomy first? Should wisdom teeth come out of the half should also be pulled out or left? Because when I was undergoing treatment for a root canal infection about 3 years ago, the doctor in charge at that time advised me to immediately remove all four because after a panoramic X-ray it turned out that my wisdom teeth were growing obliquely and if left unchecked would damage the closest teeth. Finally, as long as I am still taking medicine from the doctor, what are the foods that are abstinence for me to eat in order to accelerate the loss of painful wisdom teeth that are swollen? thanks.
Hello Luna, thanks for asking.
Of course, we have no right to give reasons as to why your dentist has decided to treat damaged teeth first. Your doctor may assess the potential for infection in the tooth, which can cause severe pain, widespread swelling, or an abscess. Maybe this is what made the doctor make the decision to remove the damaged tooth.
Regarding wisdom teeth that have appeared partially, revoked or not depends on whether the wisdom teeth cause problems or not. If the doctor assesses the possibility of tooth decay around the wisdom teeth, then maybe the doctor will take an extraction surgery.
Consult and discuss this with your doctor. Ask about the best possible course of action. If you are in doubt, you can always ask for a second opinion from another dentist. There is no special food that must be challenged to reduce swelling. Just try to choose the type of food that is not hard and as much as possible reduce the chewing with the painful part. Brush your teeth 2x a day and use dental floss to clean between your teeth.
Thus the brief information that I can give, hopefully useful. Regards.
