Hi Hananna,


Wisdom teeth or the last teeth in the composition of human teeth can come out (eruption) at the age of 17-21, but can also only come out at the age of 25 years. Wisdom tooth eruption can occur perfectly, partially, or does not come out at all because of limited space or growing tilted toward the teeth in front of him. The gums that cover some of the wisdom teeth are called operculums. Under the operculum it is very easy to collect food debris and is very difficult to clean using a toothbrush.


As a result, germs will gradually multiply in the area, causing inflammation in the operculum to help fight infection, become operulitis. Operkulitis gives the symptoms of redness and swelling of the gums that cover some of the wisdom teeth, pain especially when the gums are touched, a taste like fishy or pus coming out of the gums. If severe, can cause swelling in one cheek and pain that radiates to the ears and head.


Diagnosis is based on physical examination. Treatment is given by the dentist in accordance with the severity of the opercululitis. Usually will be given pain relievers, antibiotics, and mouthwash. The dentist will also help clean the area under the operulum to reduce the infection process that occurs. Wisdom teeth that cannot erupt completely and cause recurrent operculitis may be treated with surgical procedures to remove the wisdom teeth.


To prevent recurring opercululitis, brush your teeth regularly at least 2 times a day. If there is leftover food tucked, do not force to remove it with a toothpick if it is not possible. Try gargling with plenty of water to remove the leftovers. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
