What Is Pericoronitis?
Posted on 11/30/2018 by Celeste Tom
If someone hears they have pericoronitis, they might not know how to act. The reason for this is simple. They do not know what it is. They may realize it has something to do with their oral health and that it is a condition that it not normal from the name, but that does not mean they know what it does to them, what causes it and how to deal with it. It Has to Do with Wisdom teethDuring a lifetime, people will watch different teeth grow in. When they lose their baby teeth, they celebrate as their adult teeth grow in. Sometime in the late teen or early adulthood, another group of teeth will attempt to grow in. Getting your wisdom teeth is not something people look forward to. These teeth do not always grow easily. They demand space and they have to break through the gums. When things go wrong with wisdom teeth, pain is often the result. One of the conditions that people can suffer from when their wisdom teeth begin to grow is pericoronitis. What Happens If there is enough space and the wisdom teeth break through the gums they can grow in. If they cannot break through the gums, they become impacted. When they are able to partially break through the gums, that is known as pericoronitis. This partial breakthrough can cause a variety of symptoms, including pain, redness and swelling. If it is limited to the area around the tooth, it is possible to treat it by rinsing with warm salt water. Over the counter pain medications may also help. It is possible that the condition will clear up and the problems will resolve themselves. When the pain is severe or if it spreads to other parts of the mouth, it is best to seek the help of our oral surgeon. Removal of the wisdom teeth is a possibility. For more information about how to take care of this or any other oral health issue, contact our office to schedule an appointment....
