Wisdom Teeth Are Hollow And Painful When Pressed?
Excuse me, I want to ask yesterday my gums were swollen but it was a bit far from my wisdom teeth when my gums started to heal suddenly my wisdom teeth hurt a lot when pressed and if I met my upper molars I was also very painful and also if I pressed using my tongue it also hurt and It feels sore in the area that hurts. Do you think that my wisdom tooth should be removed? But I heard from people that a toothache can’t be pulled out
Hi Amalia, Thank you for the question.
Toothache can be caused by a variety of health conditions and this complaint can appear on any tooth. Wisdom teeth or third molars can hurt due to an abnormal growth that puts pressure on the next tooth (impact), infection, cavities, or a broken wisdom tooth. Treatment of pain in wisdom teeth, of course, depends on the cause and is not always treated with tooth extraction. Tooth extraction can not be done if you have a toothache is an incorrect assumption. Tooth extraction is not based on the presence or absence of a toothache.
It is best if you consult your dentist immediately so that the dentist can check the condition of your teeth to determine what is the cause of this toothache. The doctor may also order x-rays of the teeth. If the cause is known with certainty, the doctor will recommend the right treatment for you.
Please keep your teeth clean by brushing your teeth twice a day and using an antiseptic mouthwash. Limit consumption of sugary foods and drinks. You can take paracetamol if the toothache gets worse.
