Removal of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom Teeth Removal Campbelltown
Many of us can have impacted wisdom teeth, which can’t be treated and frequently necessitate removal.
When people are older, typically in their late teens or early twenties, they are most familiar with their wisdom teeth or third molars.
They are known as wisdom teeth because they erupt when a person is more “mature” in age.
When they develop properly, they are just as good as your other teeth, doing you no harm and assisting in proper food chewing.
However, you should visit your Campbelltown dentist immediately if you experience discomfort or pain.
Reasons for Removing the Wisdom Teeth
Many people experience wisdom teeth issues. Partially or fully erupted wisdom teeth are possible. An extraction may be required if a wisdom tooth is impacted.
A wisdom tooth needs to be extracted for the reasons listed below:
- They’re impacted
- Growth at the wrong angle
- Your gums are infected
- Trapped within the jawbone
Ignoring an impacted wisdom tooth can result in the following issues:
- Extreme pain
- Having trouble biting
- Infection and swollen gums
- Damage to the tooth tissue’s surrounding area
- Cyst growth around the wisdom tooth
When to See Your Dentist
If you’re experiencing excruciating pain from your wisdom teeth, make an appointment with your Campbelltown dentist. Your teeth will be examined, and we’ll let you know if they need to be pulled.
Your Campbelltown dentist will typically take an X-ray of your mouth if they believe you might need to have your wisdom teeth removed. This allows us to see your teeth’s position more clearly.
As with any dental issue, you should see your dentist immediately rather than delay your next routine check-up.
The Wisdom Teeth Removal Procedure
In young adults, wisdom teeth extraction is typically necessary (under the age of 25). Your wisdom teeth have likely swelled by this point, and your dentist will probably advise having it extracted.
Your Campbelltown dentist or oral surgeon will carry out the following actions while performing the wisdom tooth extraction procedure:
- Cut through your gums to reveal the tooth and bone.
- Remove the bone fragment that prevents access to the tooth root.
- If it’s simpler to remove the tooth in smaller pieces, divide it into sections.
- Take out the tooth.
- Cleaning the extraction site of any debris from the tooth or bone
- Stitch the wound to encourage healing.
- Apply gauze to the area to aid in blood clotting and to bleed control
After Surgery Care
Patients with wisdom teeth extracted usually recover within a week with no complications. The recovery time will be determined by the complexity of the procedure, the anaesthesia used, your diet, and any preventive measures taken.
After the extraction, keep your head elevated for the first three days. Keep your head from dipping below your heart. Always remember that the area is a wound in your jaw that needs recovery. When lying on your bed, use pillows to raise your head.
