Thank you Kristina Panjaitan for her question on the HealthReplies.com forum, the third molar (M3) is the molar that grows the last. Where these teeth usually grow at the age of 17 to 25 years. However, during the last molar teeth growth, it can often cause several problems such as:
- dental caries
- tooth abscess
- tooth cyst
Pericoronitis is an inflammation or infection that occurs in the tissue around the teeth from the last partially grown molars. Where this usually occurs due to the limited space of the gums that will be occupied by the last molars, as a result, these last molars can only grow squeezed or grow partially. In this condition, usually the sufferer will complain of pain in the growing teeth. Usually this condition can be treated with the provision of pain relievers, antibiotics, or in certain circumstances the dentist can also recommend the removal of the last molars. Therefore, in your current condition, you should be checked by the dentist first to confirm the situation before she can give any related treatment.

That's all from me, hope it can help
