Usually wisdom teeth are removed in the case where they bother. But many are wondering: is not it dangerous?
These teeth are called “eights”, as if measured from the centre of dentition, number 8; all four wisdom teeth – two are located on the lower jaw and two on the top. This sonorous name wisdom teeth got due to the fact that their eruption occurs much later than the other teeth at the age of 17 to 24 years. They can appear later, but it happens very rarely, reports Rus.Media.
Experts say that modern man they do not really need, since chewing any significant role to play. But the problems for those who have nevertheless came up with wisdom teeth, they are also “eight”, they are the same scientifically “third molars” can add, therefore the majority of experts converge on the opinion, if trouble emerged at the time of their eruption, it is better to get rid of them as quickly as possible.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? Askew, awry. Very often erupt wisdom teeth is oblique or transverse position relative to the mandibular bone. It is for this reason that they just do not have enough space on the jaw – all taken by other teeth. This incorrect position of the tooth in the jaw creates discomfort in the mouth and irritate the gums, also, the “far wrong” tooth difficult to clean – all this is an indication for its removal.
Harming the neighbor. Often, because of the inclination of the wisdom teeth can occur resorption of the root of the fore teeth, and this leads to its removal. It could be worse: “eight” that grows at an angle, can shift slightly in front of the standing teeth, thereby deforming the entire dentition. In addition to aesthetic problems, people who faced with this, complain of constant pain in the jaw and headaches.
Caries. Far the position of these teeth makes them more difficult to clean that leads to the development of caries, and, if the disease is ignored, it quickly gets to the neighboring teeth with all the ensuing consequences.
It is the most common problem – any of them very serious and specialists recommend removal of wisdom teeth as soon as possible, without waiting for possible complications. Removal is best performed in adolescence (or at the stage of eruption of the tooth), when the tooth root is not fully formed and its extraction is performed quickly, painlessly and without consequences.
THE REMOVAL OF WISDOM TEETH. A good dentist before removal of wisdom teeth, will recommend you to get rid of the diseases that exist in the oral cavity and will insist on the sequential removal of these teeth. Often patients are asked to remove all the teeth at once, it is technically certainly possible, but removing these complex teeth, the dentist affects the bone tissue. The result is a very strong post-operative edema, to the same painful once the anesthesia wears off. It is therefore better to act sequentially: removing a tooth for a tooth, thus giving the jaw and the mouth tissues time to recover.
COMPLICATIONS AFTER REMOVAL. The most common complication, the so-called “dry hole”. Correctly, when in place of the extracted tooth is formed a blood clot; it is wrong when it does not exist or it falls off. This cluster is part of the healing process, and its absence slows down this process. “Dry hole” makes itself felt in two to three days after removal of dull pain that is accompanied by unpleasant mouth odor. If this happens, you should immediately contact your dentist – he will impose in place of the removed tooth swab soaked with the medicine. It needs to be changed once a day until then, until symptoms disappear.
Paraesthesia – a consequence which occurs quite infrequently. This complication happens in the case when wisdom teeth are close to nerves and jaw are in the process of removing the nerve can be impaired or damaged. As a result, can anti tongue, lips or chin. These feelings are similar to those that occur after the administration of the anesthetic for pain relief, but lasts longer than a few days, weeks, and in some cases months. But not to worry – this condition takes place without any consequences.
RECOMMENDATIONS AFTER DELETION. To avoid many of the complications can help the following simple rules that must be strictly adhered to for the first few hours (days) after surgery to refrain from eating for two hours after the operation; – not warm cheek in the area of the extracted tooth; if the doctor will prescribe a rinse, this procedure is done gently, without effort; not to take a hot bath during the day; to stay away from hot meals during the following day; brush your teeth is not earlier than 24 hours; – chew your food on the opposite side; do not touch the hole language or any subjects. We discussed why you need to remove wisdom teeth, say a few words about when they can leave. If they erupt, without causing special anxiety, rising smoothly, not bothering the neighbors and generally not a particularly not manifest itself in – place! Just don’t forget while brushing your teeth to get to them.
