Painless Tooth Extraction
The last teeth to erupt are thrid molars also known as Wisdom Teeth. They usually comes up in late teens or early twenties and sometimes in late adulthood also, which is quite general. They can be considered as an asset, if they erupt smoothly and without any problem in case any misalignment or damage, they are required to be extracted. If they are poorly aligned, then they can damage the adjacent teeth.
if wisdom teeth are impacted then they will remain intact in the soft tissue and partially break or erupt through gums. If they are partially opened then there are high chances of bacteria entering the tooth causing infection, leading to the swelling in the jaw, pain and general illness.
When there is a need to remove Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth should be removed if they are impacted or causing crowding. It is better to get them removed at an early stage, because with the age the bones in your mouth becomes harder which will then make it difficult to remove. Consult with your dentist if you notice any of the following symptoms:
- Incresed pain behind molars
- Redness, swelling, tenderness in gums
- Foul breath, bad taste
- Jaw pain and stiffness
How Wisdom Tooth Extraction is done?
The removal process of Wisdom teeth depends upon the stage in which it is. If it is fully erupted, then, it is easy to extract it. But if the tooth is impacted then it will require an incision in the gums. Usually, the tooth is extracted in parts to minimize the amount of bone required to be extracted for tooth removal. A certain amount of bleeding is normal, but, if the bleeding exceeds then consult your dentist immediately. One should avoid vigorous rinsing and touching the area.
