Pain and pressure on the 7th tooth. It is caused by incorrect localisation of the wisdom tooth in the jaw bone. Not only does it cause unpleasant sensations, it also has an adverse effect on other teeth and the bite in general.
Gum inflammation. Sometimes the wisdom tooth only erupts partially and, therefore, it is difficult to care for. Food residues accumulate in the gum pocket, where they cannot be cleaned, and a favourable environment for the proliferation of bacteria develops; tooth decay and gum inflammation may occur.
This problem is more characteristic of wisdom teeth in the lower jaw.
The main symptoms of gum inflammation include pain, redness, swelling and limitation of mouth opening.
Caries of wisdom teeth. The eruption process of wisdom teeth is usually long (it can last for several years. Wisdom teeth are localised in the area of the oral cavity that is difficult to access and it is difficult or even impossible to ensure their hygiene. Therefore, wisdom teeth decay fast. Usually they are not treated due to poor accessibility. In the event of caries and inflammations, the teeth are usually removed.
