Wisdom teeth, also known as your “third molars” come in usually around the ages of 17 – 24. Many times, they come in only partially, sideways or impacted due to limited space in your mouth – causing pain, swollen gums, and infection. If this occurs, your wisdom teeth may need to be extracted.
If your teeth are getting the following problems, our clinic is the right place to have tooth extraction:
- Badly Decayed Non-Restorable Teeth
- Root Stumps
- Failed Root Canal Treated Teeth
- Impacted Teeth
- Fractured Teeth
If part of the wisdom tooth has appeared through the gum and part of it is still covered, the gum may become sore and perhaps swollen. This is called ‘pericoronitis’. Bacteria and bits of food can collect under the gum edge, and it will be difficult to clean the area properly.
Tooth extraction is usually relatively straightforward, and the vast majority can be usually performed quickly while the individual is awake by using local anesthetic injections to eliminate painful sensations. Local anesthetic blocks pain, but mechanical forces are still felt.
Some teeth are more difficult to remove for several reasons, especially related to the tooth’s position, the shape of the tooth roots and the integrity of the tooth. Dental phobia is an issue for some individuals, and tooth extraction tends to be feared more than other dental treatments like fillings. After 24 hours, you’ll begin a regimen of gentle, salt water rinses and resume your normal oral hygiene routine, taking care to avoid the empty socket and the adjacent teeth. Within two weeks, you can expect to feel significantly better.
By maintaining regular dental hygiene, you can curb all the undesirable dental conditions & avoid the need for extensive & expensive treatments in future. It can also reduce the risk of getting gingivitis, cavities, periodontitis and any such major dental problems.
