Problems Caused by Impacted Wisdom Tooth
As food particles are trapped along the corners of the wisdom tooth, it causes recurring gum infections, decaying of the adjacent tooth and chronic dental problems. The development of a cyst or a fluid-filled sac near the wisdom tooth is also common in some patients. It may also lead to complications in orthodontic procedures.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction Process
Following your approval to proceed with the extraction process, the surgery will be conducted under local anaesthesia or sedation. The time taken to extract the tooth depends upon its size and position. Once the wisdom teeth are completely extracted, our professionals will replace the tissue and positioned with the help of dissolvable stitches. The tissue automatically heals within a one-to-two week period.
Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Extraction
- Prevention of Teeth Misalignment: When you go in for wisdom teeth extraction, you prevent the possibility of teeth misalignment, very likely for your entire lifetime. Letting wisdom teeth grow results in dental overcrowding, which in turn leads to potential misalignment issues that may require bracing to rectify. However, without wisdom teeth, there are no such worries.
- Reduced Risk of Infections: When wisdom teeth are not dealt with, they can cause a whole host of dental issues, especially the impacted ones. Dental infections can be incredibly painful and if severe, may even lead to life-threatening complications. So do away with the risk of dental infections through wisdom teeth extraction.
- Reduced Chances of Cysts and Tumours in the Jawbone: Wisdom teeth, particularly impacted ones, have the tendency to become a playground for harmful bacteria. Tumours and cysts may develop if the activity of this bacteria is not kept in check. Severe complications may arise if they invade the jawbone.
