Wisdom teeth removal

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last molars on each side on the upper and lower jaws. These are also the final teeth to erupt. Only about 13 percent of the population are fortunate enough to live with their wisdom teeth without any complaints. Those who aren’t so lucky are going to meet, sooner or later, the problem of wisdom teeth removal.

What causes wisdom teeth removal in most cases?

Usually, there isn’t always enough room in the mouth for the wisdom teeth to grow properly. Because of the lack of space, they sometimes can get stuck and emerge only partially. Wisdom teeth that grow like this, are called “impacted”. If you are experiencing pain or discomfort from your wisdom teeth, it is very important make an appointment to see your dentist.

Is wisdom teeth removal always difficult? For both upper and lower jaws?

Lower wisdom tooth removal is more difficult than upper wisdom tooth removal. Also, the difficulty increases with the degree of impaction, if the tooth is grossly decayed and also with age. Most lower wisdom teeth are stuck and can’t be removed like other teeth. This is why your dentist refers you to an oral surgeon. Generally, it is necessary to make a cut in the gum, expose the jaw bone in that area and use a drill to free the tooth and remove it.

What does root amputation mean?

Dental root amputation is performed when a patient develops a periodontal problem or an endodontic problem around one of the roots of a not treatable tooth. If the choice is between extracting the whole tooth or just extracting the one root, a dentist will recommend taking out the root while leaving the top part of the tooth intact. This process is similar to a root canal treatment. That operation replaces infected dental pulp in order to save a tooth.

When is bone augmentation surgery necessary?

When teeth are lost, often with age, the bone mass decreases. If the bone under your gum is not high enough, not wide enough, or both, you will need a surgery to add bone to your jaw.

What should I do after the extraction of my wisdom teeth?

After the extraction of your wisdom teeth, you will probably experience pain and swelling. There may even be some bleeding. While the wound in your mouth heals, you have to be careful not to dislodge the blood clot or harm your healing gums. You should not consume solid foods, alcohol, coffee, soda or hot beverages in the first few days following your procedure. You shouldn’t even brush your teeth on the first day of recovery. Of course using ice packs is going to moderate the swelling of your cheeks.
