Wisdom teeth are the eighth in the dentition and the third molars. Most often they appear much later than other permanent teeth – between the ages of 18 and 27. Removal of wisdom teeth can be done during, before or after eruption. The most common indication for this is incorrect tooth growth, which leads to trauma to nearby tissues, compression of the roots of adjacent teeth. Modern dentistry Amel Dental Clinic offers painless and atraumatic wisdom tooth extraction in Dnipro, but first we would like to tell you more about this simple procedure.
The number of wisdom teeth can vary from person to person. Some have one, others have two, three, four. But there is also such a rare phenomenon when a person has more than four wisdom teeth – supernumerary teeth.
Removing wisdom teeth is one of the essential rituals of growing up, which almost everyone has to endure. It must be said that the third molars, or “wise teeth”, lost their function hundreds of thousands of years ago. Then they were needed to grind rough food, but today our culinary preferences have changed a lot.
But nature created them for some reason, you say. It’s all about the physiological differences between primitive people and modern man. Our brain has tripled in size, resulting in a reshaping of the skull and a smaller dental arcade. Thus, there is simply no room left for third molars.
Let’s highlight the main indications for the removal of third molars:
In most cases, we carry out an atypical extraction of a wisdom tooth, i.e., an extraction of a tooth that grows with significant disturbances – uncut, destroyed, horizontal. But in some cases, we are also contacted for the removal of absolutely healthy wisdom teeth, just as there are situations when a doctor decides to treat a third molar affected by caries (removal of a nerve, filling is performed according to the usual scheme). Using digital X-ray equipment, the doctor gets a complete picture of the disposition of the third molar and chooses the best way to extract the tooth.
Removal of the third molar is an ordinary surgical operation, which is performed quite often and practically does not differ from the procedure for removing ordinary teeth – the only difference lies in their inconvenient location. It can be difficult to extract a tooth if it is covered with gum or bone tissue, or in contact with the root of a neighboring tooth.
If the patient has a strong fear of any dental procedure, which is known to specialists as “dentophobia”, a special procedure is performed – sedation. Inhalation with a special gas – sevorana – allows you to calm the patient down, eliminate fear, so the removal procedure is as comfortable as possible. Local anesthesia in the form of injections guarantees complete pain relief.
There are peculiarities of removing wisdom teeth located in the lower or upper jaw. The upper extreme molars are visually less accessible, and in the lower jaw the bone tissue is denser, the roots of the teeth are curved, therefore, from the point of view of the removal technique, the process is more complicated.
Removal of impacted teeth (primordia, uncut teeth) is a complex procedure. In this case, in addition to forceps and anesthesia, additional manipulations will be required: it is necessary to make an incision in the gums, remove a fragment of bone tissue, etc. But even in this case, the procedure is absolutely pain-free and fast enough (under sedation and local anesthesia, using a laser or ultrasonic equipment). All this is also true for those cases when dystopic teeth are removed.
The following guidelines will help avoid complications and speed up the healing process:
The level of quality of dental services has increased significantly, and one of the factors without which this growth would have been impossible is the use of deep-acting anesthetics, which completely eliminates painful sensations in patients. If necessary, in addition to anesthesia, we use sedation, so that our patients feel comfortable in the dental chair. “Pull out”, “extract”, “rip out”, “remove” – whatever you call it, our surgeons will do everything in accordance with the standards, without pain and fear. The cost depends on the complexity of the procedure and additional services.
