I am Dr.Neha Gupta (dentist
) and am glad to address to your query here.
is generally caused by more tooth- less bone ratio, where the the third molar does not have space to be erupted in the occlusion.
The most common cause of pain from impacted tooth is the inflammation in the soft tissue
covering over the offending tooth(Pericoronitis
), mostly caused by food impaction in the soft tissue space over the tooth and/or bite injury
over the soft tissue covering the impacted tooth, by upper molar tooth.
In an experienced surgeons hand your impacted tooth can easily be extracted without causing much problem. You may have a mild pain and facial swelling for couple of days after extraction( as some amount of bone is to be removed)
immediately start up with warm saline rinses & betadine rinses, along with antibiotic course including amoxycilline 500mg TDS & ibuprofen 400 mg TDS.
Than visit to your dentist for check iopa x-ray
