Pericoronitis occurs when the wisdom teeth do not have enough room to erupt through the gums. As a result, they may only partially come through the gum, which may lead to inflammation and infection of the soft tissue around the wisdom tooth. If wisdom teeth only partially erupt, gum flaps may develop. These flaps are areas where food can become trapped, and bacteria can build up, causing infection. The symptoms can vary between individuals depending on the severity of the infection. Chronic symptoms include: dull pain mild discomfort bad taste in the mouth swollen gum in the affected area Chronic symptoms often only last for 1 to 2 days but keep recurring over a period of months. Acute symptoms usually last 3 to 4 days and can include: severe pain that can cause loss of sleep swelling on the affected side of the face discharge of pus pain when swallowing swollen lymph nodes under the chin fever Pericoronitis commonly occurs in people in their 20s, with around 81 percent of those … [Read more...] about What causes pericoronitis?
