Wisdom Teeth Extraction

The wisdom tooth is the third and last permanent tooth to appear, which usually emerges at the end of the jaw at a later age, sometimes it may cause problems, so in many cases the dentists remove it when problems occur or even remove it to protect the safety of the jaw and the rest of the teeth, which may cause inflammation or decay in the teeth adjacent to it. In the case of a small jaw size, sometimes the emergence of wisdom tooth can cause pain in the face or pressure in the jaw.

Recently, studies have shown that the wisdom tooth should be removed immediately if it causes any problem around it, such as in the teeth, bone, tissue, and other areas. The extraction is simple if the crown is fully visible on the surface of the jaw (fully erupted) and the roots do not contain curvature which may otherwise be broken during the extraction process, or it may be surgically removed if the tooth is partially or completely buried inside the bone and tissues

The treatment is performed surgically after the application of local anesthesia by cutting the gums and dividing the tooth into parts and then removing it completely, followed by sewing the gums. The case is reviewed from time to time. This may be accompanied by side effects:

  • Bleeding for more than 7 hours
  • Swelling in the face or difficulties with the opening of the mouth
  • Penetration of the sinus cavities in some cases with the upper jaw
  • The procedure also takes a large amount of bone during removal
  • Your doctor may need to prescribe painkillers or antibiotics in most cases.

The procedure requires following some instructions after the process of extraction and surgery:

1-After the extraction process, the patient should use cotton and gauze given by the dentist. Place it between the teeth to stop the bleeding. If the bleeding does not stop after eight hours of the removal process, consult your doctor immediately.

2 - Use cold compresses or use an ice bag on the cheek against the area of ​​surgery.

3 - It is recommended to rinse with water and salt after 24 hours of the process of extraction for four days.

4 - Do not try to tamper with your tongue or your finger in this area of the extraction to avoid bleeding.

5 - It is recommended to eat soft foods such as yoghurt, jellies and to eat on the other side of the jaw.

7 - Be careful not to bite on the places that have been anesthetized after the process of extraction.

If your doctor has prescribed antibiotics, complete the treatment and do not stop taking it even if you feel better.
