What Are The Effects Of Impacted Teeth?
Excuse me i want to ask nI am after a dentist .. ndr. He advised me to have my wisdom tooth extraction surgery. n If I see the youngest self, the bottom part of my body is already tilted deeply. Then partially covered with gums .. nAnd my upper wisdom teeth began to blacken and I only looked halfway … small. n nWhat I ask .. nDoes such a tooth have to be removed as soon as possible? n nContinue whether my mouth feels sour, sore, then sometimes dry. And the tongue is like being pricked * by a needle in the part that is close to the wisdom tooth. That is one of the side effects of the dental problem that I described above ..? n nThank you for the feedback.

Any tooth has the potential to be impacted. However, wisdom teeth are the most frequently impacted. This tooth impact occurs when the tooth is embedded in the gum or bone structure so that it is difficult to erupt. As a result of this impact, various inflammatory symptoms can appear, such as pain, swelling, redness, and so on. This inflammation can be severe enough to cause difficulty chewing food, speaking, and opening the jaw. Impacted wisdom teeth, because they are so deep in the oral cavity, are often difficult to clean and are prone to infection. This condition can cause abscess formation, broken wisdom teeth, porousness, bad breath, fever, and various other complaints. It is not impossible, the infection of the impacted tooth will spread to other areas around the tooth or even to other organs that are far away.
Your mouth that often feels sour and dry can occur as one of the effects of these impacted teeth. However, this complaint can also occur due to reflux of stomach acid, lack of oral hygiene, oral infection, dehydration, and various other causes. Meanwhile, a tongue that feels pain like a needle sticking can occur due to irritation due to the tongue rubbing directly against some of the wisdom teeth that have erupted onto the surface.
This condition should be checked directly to the dentist. If it is suspected that the impaction has the potential to cause severe inflammation and a high risk of infection, then removal is considered safer than leaving it. This action can be done directly by a dentist who specializes in oral surgery.
In the meantime, you can first do the following:
Keep your oral cavity clean, by regularly brushing your teeth, cleaning between your teeth, and gargling with antiseptic mouthwash
Do not pick up impacted teeth (including with a toothpick)
If you feel pain in the impacted tooth or on the tongue, you can take paracetamol first to reduce the pain
Hope it helps ..
