What is Wisdom Teeth?
The wisdom teeth, or third molars, grow at the back of your gums and are the last teeth to come through. Most people have four wisdom teeth. Due to the lack of space, the wisdom teeth can sometimes emerge at an angle or get stuck and only emerge partially. Wisdom teeth that grow through in this way are known as impacted. This can cause severe pain, infections or discomfort.
In rare cases, wisdom teeth can cause cystic formations as well as benign tumour growth. Our Dental Surgeons at Little India Dentist dental clinic are skilled in removing wisdom teeth. We have a special panoramic x-ray machine which helps assessing your wisdom tooth.
Impacted Wisdom Teeth
When a wisdom tooth becomes impacted, patients can experience discomfort and lot of pain in the surrounding area or their jaw line. If you are experiencing severe pain in your wisdom teeth, seek treatment from an emergency dentist at the earliest.
While many individuals may believe these teeth require extraction simply due to overcrowding, the underlying reason can be much more serious. If left untreated, impacted wisdom teeth can potentially harm adjacent teeth, the jawbone and the nerves.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction / Wisdom Tooth Surgery
Type of treatment needed to remove a wisdom tooth depends on where the wisdom teeth are located. Eating is not recommended for 24 hrs prior to the wisdom teeth removal. The wisdom tooth extraction procedure takes approximately 1 hour, with another 30 minutes to come round. The practitioner may need to cut some away before removing the affected area piece by piece. The tissue will then be replaced and held into position using dissolvable stitches. It is normal for people to feel tired for a day after the wisdom tooth surgery.
