Wisdom Tooth Growth Tilts Toward The Inside Of The Cheek?
Hello, I am 24 years old, so far I have not realized that my upper right wisdom teeth have grown because they do not feel anything. when I checked, the crown of the youngest tooth was fully out of the gum pointing sideways to the inside of the cheek. Please advise, because the direction of the crown does not crash into the next tooth. Are there any actions that need to be taken? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Wisdom teeth often do not grow in the right way, can be tilted (as you are experiencing at this time), overlap or collide with other surrounding teeth, or can also be buried in the gum structure and jawbone so that it fails to erupt completely.
This condition is actually not always dangerous. However, the direction of teething sideways towards the inner cheek can cause your cheek vulnerable to injury due to continuous friction with sharp crowns. Furthermore, the wound on the inner cheek, if not treated properly, is also prone to secondary infections which make the cheeks feel painful, swollen, reddish, and even may fester. Not only that, the position of wisdom teeth growing young sideways can certainly make teeth more difficult to clean. This can make your cavity teeth more prone to cavities, even rotten.
Therefore, even if you have not caused any complaints, you should still check your condition to the nearest dentist. By examining the condition of your teeth and mouth comprehensively, of course the doctor can determine whether the wisdom teeth that grow obliquely can be left alone because they are still reasonable, or need further treatment, for example by oral surgery. This treatment is important in order to prevent the risk of complications as mentioned above.
Hope this helps ...
