Those who suffer from the problems of wisdom tooth might feel the pain because of many reasons. One of the most prominent reasons for unbearable pain is pericoronitis pain. This is a condition that causes inflammation in the surrounding tissues of your morals or wisdom tooth. This particularly happens in the cases where the wisdom tooth is partially impacted or not visible. This can cause unbearable pain for you which will need immediate medical attention. If you are experiencing such pain, then you are surely looking for oral and maxillofacial surgeons near you.

If you are in Cornelius, Charlotte, or any other area in North Carolina, then you need to come to Dr. Richard Rolle Jr., one of the most eminent oral and maxillofacial surgeons in the country, treating hundreds of patients for years. His treatment can effectively help you get some relief from the unbearable pericoronitis pain.

Symptoms of Pericoronitis Pain
The pericoronitis pain can be acute or chronic. And in these cases, the symptoms might differ from each other. If you are suffering from this type of pain, it is essential that you search for an oral surgeon near me so that you get to know what is causing the pain so that it can be treated by the oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

Acute Pericoronitis Pain
The symptom of acute cases will involve the following,
• Severe pain in the back of your teeth
• Swollen gum tissues
• Pain when you are swallowing
• Pus discharge
• Jaw locking or trismus

If you are suffering from a chronic condition, you might see the following symptoms:
• Bad taste in the mouth
• Bad breath
• A dull pain that can last for a couple of days or more

How It Can be Diagnosed
When you are experiencing this pain, you need to rush to your nearest oral and maxillofacial clinic where you can get an X-ray. When you come to Dr. Rolle, he will listen to your symptoms and then get an X-ray to know about this condition.

The treatment of this problem will be done in three stages,
• Pain management
• Surgery
• Aftercare at home

Managing Pain
Once the x-ray is done, it will be clear to the doctor whether the tooth is expected to fully erupt or not. If it is taking time for that, then initially the doctor will opt for pain management. You will be prescribed ibuprofen or Tylenol that will give you some relief. You will be told how many times you will need to take these medicines. The gum tissues surrounding your teeth will be cleared for preventing plaque and build-up food particles.

After managing the pain, Dr. Richard Rolle Jr. will suggest you the surgery. You will be under local anesthesia and that is why you will feel no pain during the surgery. The tooth will be removed putting an end to your problem. Or if necessary, only a flap will be removed that will give your tooth enough room to naturally erupt. The process will be selected after closely seeing the condition in your mouth.

Aftercare at Home
Once the surgery is done, you will be released on the same day for going home. You will be prescribed antibiotics and pain medications. Antibiotics are needed to be taken as per instructions to prevent further infection. Even if there is no infection, still you will have to finish the course. You will be asked to rinse your mouth with warm saltwater that will give you some relief from the pain after the surgery. After a couple of days, you will be allowed to brush and floss that will help you maintain better oral hygiene.
