Wisdom Teeth With A Cavity?
Hello. I want to ask. I am 23 years old stirrups with complaints of my right wisdom tooth having a hole until today. The kurleb is already 1 month. On the first Sunday I went to my orthodontic doctor. On the second week my teeth and gums tasted thick and thick. On this 3-4 weeks if I eat / chew with teeth on the left side it feels REALLY SICK. Sometimes if you accidentally eat something that is too hot it hurts to your jaw. Guess what should I do? My doctor. Has given a choice between nerve treatment of teeth / extractions. What is the most appropriate action in the future?
Wisdom teeth or third molars are the back teeth in the teeth structure, these teeth are also the last to appear during adulthood. If a molar 3 feels pain due to cavities, the first effort that can be done is to patch the teeth, but if the cavity damage process is heavy enough, then consider removing or treating the root of the tooth needs to be done.
Tooth root treatment is an action to overcome the damage that occurs in the tooth cavity, usually due to infection in cavities. In the root canal of the tooth there is a part that contains nerves and blood vessels, so if the root canal part is inflamed or damaged, there will be pain, swelling in the gum area even to the face of the neck, discharge from the site of infection, or even occur bone damage at the tip of the tooth root.
While tooth extraction will be considered if the tooth condition is indeed difficult to maintain because it can trigger a recurrence or other complications. In the treatment of tooth root treatment, various kinds of procedures are needed before action is taken, but there is also a possibility that the inflammation of the tooth root will recur. Whereas in the tooth extraction procedure there is still a procedure that is performed first but not as much as the root tooth treatment procedure, and by extracting the tooth it is expected that the conditions of pain and inflammation will not recur again. But of course the composition of the teeth will be reduced (toothless) because the third molar teeth will not be replaced by new teeth.
Consult this with your dentist, because the medical effort that is most appropriate for you depends on Siti's current condition, the doctor needs to re-examine whether the treatment of tooth root can provide maximum benefits if done or need to be extracted so that there is no recurrence.
