Know More About The Impacted Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth or the third molars are the last teeth to develop. They usually appear when a person is between 17 and 25 years of age. This time of life is called the "Age of Wisdom" and therefore the tooth that develops at this age is called a wisdom tooth. Well, in a few cases, there isn't any problem in the development of the wisdom teeth; however, sometimes it gets 'impacted.' When a tooth is not able to completely enter the mouth, it is said to be impacted. The impacted teeth find it difficult to break through the gums because of lack of space. The impacted wisdom teeth should be extracted by visiting an appropriate dental surgeon.

At times all the four wisdom teeth is removed, while at other times, each tooth is removed in separate sessions. Your oral surgeon will take the ultimate decision regarding the removal. X-rays or dental polishing machine will be taken to determine the extent of infection or how close the impacted teeth are to the gums surface.

Prior to the removal of the tooth, you will be given a local anesthetic for numbing the region. In case multiple wisdom teeth are to be removed, a general anesthesia is given. For removing the impacted tooth, the dentist opens the gum tissue lying above the tooth and takes out the bone which covers the tooth. The tissue that connects the bone to the tooth is removed, followed by the removal of the tooth. In some cases, the oral surgeon cuts the tooth into several small pieces for easy removal.

You may require stitches subsequent to the removal of the tooth. Stitches might get dissolved over time or will have to be removed within a few days. In order to stop the bleeding from the wound, a cotton gauze pad will be placed on top of it. The time taken for the surgery may range anywhere from one to a couple of hours based on the degree of impaction and the number of teeth to be removed.

Patients can experience bleeding within 24 hours after the extraction. This is normal, but if the bleeding still persists after 24 hours, a follow-up consultation with the dentist is highly recommended. After the effects of the anesthetics have worn out, the pain will eventually kick in. Taking a pill from the dentist's prescription before the anesthesia wears out will avert the patient from feeling a lot of pain. It is also highly recommended that the patient who has just undergone wisdom tooth removal should stop smoking, avoid drinking through straw, or engage in exhausting activities for the blood clot to form sooner and make the healing process faster.Why does the surgery so successful? Because the dentists use quality dental instruments.

Successful removal of the wisdom tooth can prevent a number of uncomfortable mouth problems including the crowding of the back teeth, swelling and painful gums (caused by skin flaps around the partially-emerged wisdom tooth), and even decaying of the teeth (and possible gum disease). Extraction of the wisdom tooth should be considered while you are young because during this time, the removal of the teeth is easier and the post-surgery healing is faster.
