Some people never get wisdom teeth, and for those who do, they normally emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. Your dentist may recommend removing your wisdom teeth regardless of when they erupt for a variety of reasons, such as impaction (which occurs when the teeth become stuck in the jawbone or gums), misalignment, close spacing, and/or decaying.
There’s no need to freak out if your orthodontist in international city dubai
has recommended that you have your wisdom teeth extracted. Although removing wisdom teeth is considered surgery, it is safely done every day in clinics across the country. What you need to know about this standard dental procedure is provided below.
Local anesthesia will be administered
The good news is that since your dentist will provide an anesthetic before starting the process, you won’t experience any pain during it. The area in which your orthodontist will be working will be numbed using a local anesthetic. During the operation, you can feel some pressure and movement, but no discomfort.
Your dentist will make an incision in the gum line to extract your wisdom teeth. They will do this to reveal the relevant teeth and the underlying bone. To make it simpler to remove the tooth, if required, your dentist will cut it into smaller pieces. It will be necessary to remove any bone that is preventing access to the tooth. Any particles and debris that are still present around the bone and/or gumline will be cleaned away after the tooth or teeth have been removed. After that, the incision will be stitched shut. In order to reduce bleeding, gauze is typically placed over the extraction site.
The Process of Recovery
The dentist will offer you gauze to put in your mouth after removing your wisdom teeth in order to aid in the formation of a clot and the fostering of healing. As your mouth heals, you might anticipate seeing or tasting a tiny bit of blood for a few days. After the first 24 to 48 hours, this should subside. After a few days, if you’re still bleeding or experiencing severe pain, it’s advised that you phone your dentist so they can check the area and make sure it isn’t infected. Antibiotics and painkillers will be prescribed to you so that your body can fight off any infections that may arise during the healing process and so that you can recover pain-free.
What Happens if Your Wisdom Teeth Are Not Removed?
Although not all people require the removal of their wisdom teeth, complications can arise if you don’t. These include:
- Infections and gum disease
- tumors and cysts
Overcrowding may occur in patients with smaller mouths and jaws. Your teeth will start to shift and overlap once this takes place. A wisdom tooth extraction is suggested in situations like this.
