Wisdom’s teeth grind
Wisdom tooth, wisdom tooth, Possibly translated from Latin: Dens sapientiae, The Chinese meaning is [the throne of wisdom of teeth], Because wisdom teeth usually erupt around the age of 17-25, Much later than the other teeth, At that age, it is generally believed that you should be a little wiser than children. So it is called wisdom tooth. It is commonly known in China as “standing tooth”. For the same reason. The scientific name of wisdom tooth [third molar], Generally speaking, each person has 0 to 4 teeth in his mouth. If the teeth in his mouth are divided into four quadrants according to the upper, lower, left and right, Wisdom teeth are the eighth number from the middle seam to both sides, located at the end of the dentition. When it comes to wisdom teeth, it will remind many people of their painful memories: their faces are swollen like eggs, their mouths cannot be opened, and they cannot eat or sleep soundly. These are typical symptoms of pericoronitis of wisdom teeth, that is, infection around wisdom teeth. Why don’t other teeth torture people so much? There are many people and small houses. Drive to find a parking space, Are the two major problems perplexing urbanites, The same is true of wisdom teeth. Because wisdom teeth come too late, The mouth is already full, It often does not grow straight, This brings about a series of problems. Next, I will briefly talk to you about some possible hazards of wisdom teeth. Inflammation of wisdom teeth that harm people and harm oneself first talks about the problems of wisdom teeth themselves. No matter whether the wisdom teeth are straight or not, Because it is in the deepest part of the mouth, Near the throat, It brings great difficulty to its daily cleaning work, Brush not clean, It can’t even be brushed at all. So wisdom teeth are prone to dental caries. And it is bad over and over again. In addition, because wisdom teeth are located at the junction of cheeks and gums, Most of the time, the surrounding area is no longer tough gum tissue, But soft mucosal tissue, Low resistance, It is very prone to periodontitis. Whether it is dental caries or periodontitis, They are all infectious diseases caused by bacteria. There will be a steady stream of pathogenic bacteria spreading from wisdom teeth to other teeth in the oral cavity, Among them, the second molar next to it is the most seriously affected. Besides, the influence of wisdom teeth on the periphery. Just now we mentioned pericoronitis of wisdom teeth. This problem often occurs when wisdom teeth cannot erupt completely. Some of them were exposed, The rest is still covered with gums, Formed a blind bag, It’s better to get in than to get out. At this time, Once food residue or what’s powerful bacteria enter the gap between wisdom teeth and gums, It will cause local infection. It is especially easy to recur at critical moments such as relatively low resistance, overtime neglect of brushing teeth, busy study and great pressure. It is very delayed. Another thing is that wisdom teeth give other teeth great strength during the growth process. Resulting in resorption of the adjacent second molar root, It may also lead to crowded arrangement of lower and anterior teeth, because this statement has not been agreed by the academic circle. Just now, it was said that wisdom teeth may cause major harm, so the United States spends more than US $3 billion to pull out 10 million wisdom teeth every year. However, there will always be people who say, “I don’t know what you said, but my wisdom teeth don’t hurt or itch, is it okay?” Do you still need to pull it out? ] Pull or not, This is a problem. Generally speaking, According to the eruption of wisdom teeth, It can be divided into three types: Completely erupting, partially erupting, and completely ambushed. 1. Completely erupting If you have enough jaw space, Wisdom teeth can erupt completely, The direction is very circumferential, And your routine oral maintenance is professional, Wisdom teeth have no caries, no cavity and no periodontitis. It happened that the upper wisdom teeth opposite it also grew very well. The two teeth form a good occlusal relationship, No cheeks, no teeth, So this pair of wisdom teeth is truly the third molar, It can completely stay in the mouth to perform chewing function. However, this kind of situation is very rare in outpatient work. There is no one in a hundred miles. If we say that among the above conditions, None of them are available, So from a preventive point of view, It is necessary to consider whether to pull out the wisdom teeth. 2. Partial eruption the second is the most common condition. There is not enough room for wisdom teeth to grow. Got stuck in the front tooth, Half of it was in his mouth, The other half is buried in meat. This wisdom tooth, It has no function, It is also a clear health hazard, Sooner or later, swelling and pain will affect the nearby teeth. So once it is found out, It is suggested to pull it out. 3. The third case of complete ambush is the most tangled. Often the patient himself does not know that he still has a wisdom tooth, They were all found by X-rays taken during the treatment of other teeth. A wisdom tooth lies in various postures in the alveolar bone. There is no connection with the outside world. The benefit of this tooth extraction is that it prevents many risks. However, there are also some risks of complications during and after the extraction of wisdom teeth. Such as swelling, pain, dry socket, nerve paralysis, etc. Let doctors and patients are more tangled. I checked several authoritative teaching materials and documents, For asymptomatic impacted wisdom teeth, Without direct test data from what, Most of them are the opinions of experts. The advantages of pulling out are: Avoid the possibility of various problems such as pericoronitis mentioned above in the future. The disadvantage of pulling out is that some temporary or permanent complications may occur. Including nerve damage during tooth extraction, resulting in abnormal sensation of local skin on cheeks or part of tongue, which is more likely to occur in some wisdom teeth with deeper ambush. Therefore, if long wisdom teeth are found, the dentist should check whether there is no what problem. If there is no such problem, then there is no need to pull it out. And in most cases it may be problematic, It is better to pull it out. What needs to be reminded is that young female friends, Otherwise, it can be a headache if you make wisdom teeth when you are pregnant. If the wisdom teeth do not grow and are buried in bones, you can choose to pull them out or observe them regularly. At present, science is still difficult to give you a definite conclusion. Finally, I only have two upper wisdom teeth, both of which were pulled out without what symptoms.
