Overcoming Pain In Wisdom Teeth Until The Gums Become Damaged?
Hello, I want to be 17 years old. Then my lower right back teeth grew again but only a little. Yesterday it really hurt so I reflexively hold on to it, I don’t know why my gums are like torn so I haven’t dared to check with the dentist. The gums are torn and the color of the item is rich with small veins. I got scared. Is that dangerous or not?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Judging from the information you conveyed, it is likely that your complaint arises due to gum inflammation due to the growth of wisdom teeth. This condition is prone to occur in people aged 17 to 25 years.
Often times, wisdom teeth growth does not cause significant complaints, namely only in the form of discomfort around the back of the gums that radiates to the jaw. However, if the wisdom tooth that is about to erupt (surface) is not positioned properly or is impacted (buried by other structures around it), then this often triggers inflammation that is quite severe, can even cause pain, swelling, jaw stiffness, and suppuration. , fever, and so on.
If you hold or squeeze excessively the inflamed gums around the wisdom teeth, they may become sores and look torn as you did. This condition should be checked directly to the dentist. Because, wounds on the inflamed gums are very risky for infection, especially if it is not balanced with good oral hygiene. If then you experience an infection, then of course the symptoms of inflammation that appear will be more intense and treatment will be more difficult. Furthermore, this infection can also spread to other areas around wisdom teeth, including the soft tissues in the jaw, and so on.
By going directly to the dentist, the doctor can directly evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums and determine the right treatment. If it is true that your complaint occurs due to an infection of the inflamed gums due to the eruption of wisdom teeth, the doctor will likely give you some medicine first to treat the infection and inflammation. Furthermore, you may also be referred to a dentist who specializes in oral surgery for wisdom tooth extraction surgery.
Now, try to reduce the pain and inflammation around your gums by taking paracetamol medicine. Please minimize the contact between the inflamed gums and food. Brush your teeth regularly 3 times a day and rinse your mouth with salt water afterward. Avoid touching the injured gum, either with open hands or any tool that is questionable cleanliness.
I hope this helps.
