Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
An impacted tooth, which is trapped in the gum or jaw so that it is difficult to erupt, can cause severe inflammation, which can lead to pain, swelling, or even abscess formation. This condition can cause sufferers to feel very disturbed, and can even make it difficult to eat and talk. In some cases, inflammation due to impacted teeth can spread to the jaw area, ear, and sinus cavity.
The treatment for definitively impacted teeth is performed surgically. Of course, every medical procedure, including surgery, has its own risks. Some of the possible risks that may arise from this impacted tooth surgery are:
Dry socket (alveolar osteitis)
Dry socket occurs when a blood clot fails to form on the surgical site of a tooth, or when a blood clot breaks off, causing extreme pain and an unpleasant odor to emit from the area. Nerve damage
Nerves that are prone to damage due to impacted dental surgery are the trigeminal nerves. This nerve damage can appear as pain, tingling, or numbness that appears especially in the area of the tongue, lips, cheeks, teeth, and gums. In general, these symptoms are only temporary and will improve within a few weeks to several months after surgery. This nerve damage rarely affects the nerves that regulate hearing. Infection
Infection in the surgical scar is generally characterized by a surgical scar that looks swollen, reddish, or also produces foul-smelling pus a few days or weeks after surgery. Bleeding
Under normal conditions, the impacted tooth surgery scar will stop bleeding in less than 3 days. However, in some rare conditions, especially if you have problems related to blood clots, this bleeding can last longer, even causing anemia. As mentioned above, it is very rare for impacted dental surgeries to cause side effects of hearing loss. Even if these side effects may occur, then this should be minimized by performing surgery on a competent doctor, namely a dentist who specializes in oral surgery. Therefore, do not hesitate to consult directly with him. A good doctor will certainly give you the best treatment by considering how much benefit as well as the potential side effects that may arise from any medical action taken.
I hope this helps.
