What are the symptoms of pericoronitis?

Pericoronitis

Pericoronitis is the infection of the gum that surrounds and partially covers the tooth that is in the process of eruption or that has already erupted. It can occur in children (first molar) and in adults (third molar).

The presence of this tissue on the tooth can generate accumulation of food, and also susceptible to chewing trauma.



If it is not treated, it can lead to more serious problems for general health, for example: forming abscesses, or spreading the infection or inflammation to the lymph nodes.
