Pain And Swelling Of The Gums Due To Wisdom Teeth?
Excuse me, I’m 27 years old. Grow wisdom teeth at each end of the upper and lower graham. The wisdom tooth which is at the end of my lower right graham cracker has appeared for a long time but it only looks a little, the crown does not appear. But just yesterday felt severe pain. When I checked with the doctor, it turned out that the pus came out when the gums were pressed. The same doctor was only given amoxicillin and mefenamic acid and mouthwash. Do you need other actions such as surgical removal if the pain and tenderness doesn’t heal? thanks.

The appearance of an abscess or pus in the gum area can indeed cause pain and sometimes may be accompanied by other symptoms such as fever or bad breath. For treatment, use antibiotics and pain relievers first, and you can also compress the sore or swollen area with a cold compress to reduce existing complaints.
Tooth extraction is usually done when the wisdom teeth are not in a good position or push the molars in front of them. Or a crack in the tooth. Usually the dentist will do an examination first before deciding whether to do the extraction or not.
Meanwhile, some suggestions that you can do are:
Take the medications prescribed by your doctor regularly
Return to your dentist to get a more appropriate management
Avoid consuming sugary foods or drinks first until the complaints are reduced
Maintain dental hygiene by brushing it at least twice a day
Use mouthwash to help clean the oral cavity. But stop using it when the pain has subsided
That is the information we can convey. May be useful
