Wisdom Tooth Removal - A Complete Guide
Humans develop a total of 32 adult teeth. twenty eight of them erupt by around the age of 13. The last 4, however, do not come in until your late teens to early 20s. These are your third molars, often called the wisdom teeth. They are the most likely to become impacted. This means that the teeth cannot properly erupt through the gums. Sometimes they partially erupt, or they may not erupt at all. They can cause a significant amount of pain and difficulty in performing daily activities.
The idea of wisdom teeth removal may sound to be painful and tedious. After undergoing the agonising pain caused by the tooth itself, due to various reasons of misalignment, or overcrowding of teeth that push the wisdom teeth on the farthest corner of your jaw, it is obvious for any person to experience the fear of wisdom tooth removal procedure. However, there is no need to stress and fear.
If you notice inflammation and tenderness on your gums in that area and see the wisdom tooth protruding out and trapping food particles in between the tooth and gums, your dentist may suggest a wisdom tooth removal procedure at the earliest. If your wisdom teeth have become impacted, Maxcare Dental can help with wisdom teeth removal.
Why do you need wisdom teeth extraction?
- For many of us, the jaw area may not be sufficient for all the teeth to fit in their places, resulting in overcrowding. This leads to impacted wisdom teeth that breakthrough your gums behind the molars.
- Your wisdom tooth might have developed some infection due to the presence of bacteria leading to tooth decay. Often, if ignored, this may further lead to the formation of cysts and tumors.
- The problem disturbs the alignment of other teeth, making it look clumsy on the inside of your mouth.
How is the Wisdom Tooth Removal procedure performed?
The procedure is handled by one of Maxcare Dental’s experienced dentist. Local anaesthesia is given before the surgery so that you don’t have any wisdom teeth removal pain. If you are going to get all of your wisdom teeth extracted, your dentist may give you intravenous sedation. After this, your doctor removes any gum tissue that surrounds the wisdom tooth and then extracts it. To make the wisdom tooth removal easier, the dentist breaks the tooth into smaller chunks. After the extraction, your doctor secures the surrounding area with sutures. These may be removed a few days post-surgery.
