Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, usually develop sometime during the late teens and mid-twenties. Most people have four wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have less or none at all. When properly aligned, removing wisdom teeth is not necessary. This is not generally the case, however, and most people do not have jawbones large enough to accommodate all four emerging teeth — and that can pose a number of problems. Wisdom tooth extraction may be the best course of action in cases where infection, inflammation, pain or crowding is present.
For this reason, Riya Dental Clinic recommends that you maintain regular dental checkups to monitor the condition of your wisdom teeth. With Two locations in Rourkela And Panposh, our Board Certified oral surgeons can safely and comfortably handle your wisdom teeth procedure.
Why do I need my wisdom teeth removed?
Since your wisdom teeth are the final set of permanent teeth to develop, there’s a good chance that there won’t be enough room in your mouth for them to erupt properly. The teeth may erupt sideways, partially or become impacted in the jaw, leading to pain, infection, overcrowding, and swelling. One or all of your wisdom teeth may need to be removed to prevent issues from occurring or to correct problems that are already present.
The most common reasons for wisdom teeth extractions include:
- An impacted or poorly aligned third molar can crowd or damage surrounding teeth, the jawbone or nerves.
- Crowded teeth are more difficult to clean, and therefore, more prone to decay and gum disease. Crowding will also often reverse the beautiful effects that a patient has previously attained from orthodontics.
- Impacted wisdom teeth may lead to the formation of cysts or tumors.
- Partially erupted wisdom teeth may result in painful, swollen and infected gums as bacteria can more easily enter the opening around the tooth.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction Procedure
The position of the wisdom teeth determines the method of removal. A fully erupted third molar can usually be removed like any other tooth, while an impacted wisdom tooth may require surgical extraction with local anesthesia and conscious sedation. Recovery following wisdom teeth extraction usually lasts only a few days.
- The initial consultation will allow the dentist to complete a custom approach for your wisdom teeth extraction.
- Day of extraction will include the surgery and instructions for at-home care.
- After extraction, the dentist will schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure a steady healing process.
