Wisdom Tooth Extraction at Antalya Dental Hospital, Turkey

Wisdom Tooth Extraction: What Are They, Benefits and Cost

Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth — the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom.

If a wisdom tooth doesn’t have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, you’ll likely need to have it pulled. Wisdom tooth extraction may be done by a dentist or an oral surgeon.

To prevent potential future problems, some dentists and oral surgeons recommend wisdom tooth extraction even if impacted teeth aren’t currently causing problems.

Painless treatment with flawless accuracy.

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth. They are the third set of molars that typically emerge between the ages 17 and 25.

They do not cause problems as long as they come through in the right position. However, if there is not enough room for them to grow in, if they are unable to erupt fully through the gums or if they are impacted or trapped in your jaw under your gums, your wisdom teeth may need to be extracted.

When should wisdom teeth be removed?

With regular checkups, your dentist is able to monitor your wisdom teeth. Here are possible reasons that may prompt your dentist to recommend wisdom tooth extraction.

  • Wisdom teeth that are not in their ideal position can trap food and cause decay and damage to the tooth.
  • It is difficult to clean and floss between wisdom teeth that have not erupted properly.
  • Wisdom teeth that have only partially surfaced can give bacteria an opening to enter the gums and create a breeding ground for infection and gum disease.
  • Wisdom teeth that do not have enough room to grow in can crowd and damage the adjacent teeth.
  • The wisdom tooth grows in a sac within the jawbone which can fill with fluid forming a cyst that can damage your nerves, teeth and jawbones.

How do you know that your wisdom teeth are growing in?

Aside from discovering your new molars in the rear of your mouth, symptoms including pain and tenderness in the gums may indicate that your wisdom teeth are growing.

Symptoms that may indicate a problem with your wisdom teeth include bleeding, red or swollen gums, jaw pain or swelling, bad breath or unpleasant taste in your mouth and difficulty opening your mouth.

What should you do if you notice any of these symptoms?

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause tooth damage, decay, pain and cysts. If you feel any of the symptoms above, visit your dentist right away.

What is a crown made of?2022-02-06T22:29:36+03:00

Crowns can be made of a variety of different materials, such as porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. New materials are continually being introduced. It is a good idea to talk to your dental team about which crown would be best for you.

Does pregnancy cause damage to teeth?2022-02-06T23:01:07+03:00

No. It is not true that pregnancy causes tooth problems through a lack of calcium, or that you will lose one tooth for each child you have.

Can I prevent bad breath?2022-02-06T22:11:04+03:00

To keep your breath fresh, you must get rid of any gum disease, and keep your mouth clean and fresh. If you do have bad breath, try keeping a diary of all the foods you eat and list any medicines you are taking. Take this diary to your dentist, who may be able to suggest ways to solve the problem.

  • Brush your teeth and gums last thing at night and at least one other time during the day, with a fluoride toothpaste.
  • Don’t forget to brush your tongue as well, or use a tongue scraper. Cut down on how often you have sugary food and drinks.
  • Visit your dental team regularly, as often as they recommend.
  • Clean in between your teeth with ‘interdental’ brushes or floss at least once a day – brushing alone only cleans up to about 60 percent of the surface of your teeth.
  • There are other products you can buy to clean between your teeth.
  • Use a mouthwash – some contain antibacterial agents that could kill bacteria that make your breath smell unpleasant.

If you continue to suffer from bad breath visit your dental team to make sure that the mouthwash is not covering up a more serious underlying problem. Chew sugar-free gum – it helps your mouth produce saliva and stops it drying out. A dry mouth can lead to bad breath.

Do some practices specialise in treating nervous patients?2022-02-06T20:52:12+03:00

Yes. This means that they should be used to dealing with nervous patients regularly.

If you are nervous about dental treatment, you need to be looked after by a dental practice that will take special care of you. You may need to travel some distance, but it will be worth the effort when you are no longer afraid.
