Pain In The Gums On The Wisdom Teeth That Grow?
Youngest teeth that just look a little this causes pain in the gums. Removing a little blood and cause discomfort when chewing. Do you need to do the wisdom tooth extraction surgery? Are there other alternatives to avoid surgery? Thank you.
Hello Kia, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Wisdom teeth that grow is a natural and normal process that naturally occurs in every individual where the process of growth as in the process of growth in other teeth, can indeed cause complaints as you feel because the growth seems to cause a 'tear wound' and inflammation of the gums which covers it so the teeth can come out perfectly and function properly.
Extraction (both operative and ordinary extraction) for wisdom teeth, is only recommended if there are certain conditions which if allowed to grow can cause permanent complaints or disturbances in the surrounding tissue / teeth such as pushing adjacent teeth due to abnormal growth position or cause infections of the gums continuously.
Complaints of pain and discomfort when chewing during wisdom teeth growth without accompanied by any disorder / abnormality, is not an indication / consideration for the extraction of wisdom teeth, so your current complaint does not necessarily require that your wisdom teeth be removed.
If the complaint is indeed felt very disturbing, it is highly recommended to check the condition of your teeth to the dentist for further evaluation so that it can be determined whether your teeth really need extraction or not, and what other therapies / actions are recommended to be done to resolve your complaint .
Meanwhile, in addition to seeing a dentist, you can also take pain relievers such as paracetamol according to the dosage package until there is further recommended treatment from your dentist.
I hope this helps.
