Eruption of wisdom teeth takes usually several months. Incompletely erupted tooth is partially or completely covered with gum - so-called gingival hood. Precisely in this period may appear pericoronitis ? it is an inflammation of the soft tissue (gingiva) surrounding the tooth, in case of its incomplete eruption. The inflammation causes bacteria in the mouth. Accumulations of food debris under the overhanging edge of the gums create favorable conditions for the activities of microorganisms that usually do not cause inflammation. Pericoronitis requires surgical treatment that can provide Oral Surgeons in Hawaii. Under local anesthesia, they excise the hood over the entire surface of the tooth crown and prescribe anti-inflammatory therapy.
