Good morning, it’s been 2 days my gums are swollen and painful in the lower wisdom teeth. Is that reasonable? And how to overcome it ?? And my wisdom teeth are sinking a little from the gums. Can my wisdom teeth grow more perfect (not sinking) again at the age of 23? Thank you

Hi Layla,


Thank you for the question.

Wisdom tooth growth is imperfect, that is, sinking under the gums so that it is difficult to experience an eruption perfectly, certainly can trigger a variety of symptoms of inflammation, including pain, swollen and reddish gums, fever, stiff jaw, and so on. If there are no complications, this wisdom tooth should have experienced a perfect eruption before the age of 25 years. However, in some cases, wisdom teeth can also be obstructed by eruption, due to collision with the surrounding teeth or due to improper position (for example, oblique or transverse), so that surgery (surgery) is necessary to avoid symptoms of inflammation that become more severe.


Aside from the condition of your wisdom teeth, swelling gums and painful teeth can indicate other medical conditions, such as dental abscesses, gingivitis, pulpitis, cellulitis, jaw joint disorders, and so on.


Presumably, you need to see yourself directly to the nearest dentist for further evaluation and treatment. At home, the first steps you can take:

Be diligent at brushing your teeth cleanly
Gargle with warm salt solution so that the symptoms of inflammation in the oral cavity are reduced
Don't consume foods and drinks that are too hard, sticky, hot, or cold
Take paracetamol for pain and swelling
Rest more and position your head higher to reduce swelling
Do not smoke

Hope this helps ...
