Teeth appear-usually after eight to sixteen years, delayed the process for several years. Choking on painkillers the pain and discomfort you can skip complications perikoronit, it might lead to more serious diseases.
What is perikoronit
Perikoronit – inflammation of the gum tissue around the wisdom tooth. The most frequently observed it in the tissue around eights on the lower jaw. It develops after the tooth cuts through the gums partially. If the process of growth slows down, around the emerging piece of the tooth can accumulate bacteria, is an infection and inflammation of gums. Spread process on the cheeks and the neck.
Complicate the development of the disease food debris, forming plaque on the tooth surface. Accumulate plaque under the gum tissue and clean it just will not work. While eating the gums are injured and swollen, inflamed gingival margin.
When you have a difficult teething eight will put pressure on neighboring teeth and damaging the soft tissue, and bone. The reasons for such complications can be different from the incorrect position of the tooth root to seal the mucous membrane, which does not allow the tooth to erupt.
