Wisdom Tooth Extraction India

Wisdom teeth are one of four rearmost molars on each side of the upper and lower jaw in humans. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt, typically in early adulthood. Wisdom tooth extraction is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom. These teeth are considered as the hardest ones. Wisdom tooth extraction is usually performed when a tooth doesn’t have room to and the impacted tooth results in pain, infection or other dental problems. Wisdom tooth extraction may be done by a dentist in the dentist’s office.  You may have the surgery in the hospital, especially if you are having all your wisdom teeth pulled at one time or if you are at high risk for complications. If you have any infections, surgery will usually be delayed until the infection has cleared up. The dentist may have you take antibiotics to help heal the infection.

The main symptoms that lead to wisdom teeth extraction are:

1. Infection in the mouth

2. Facial swelling

3. Pain

4. Swelling of the gum line in the back of the mouth

Early removal of wisdom tooth can prevent problems. You can avoid the pain and possible damaging effects of an impacted wisdom tooth by having it removed early, before its roots are fully developed. The dentist can monitor the development of your wisdom teeth with x-rays and remove them if it has any problems.

Wisdom extraction may be done for several reasons. The wisdom teeth may come in creating an issue for surrounding teeth pushing them out of the way or dispositioning. This can cause a type of domino effect with the rest of the teeth in the mouth including making the front teeth appear very crowded. This is one reason that extraction may be elected. Additionally, the wisdom teeth can do damage to the surrounding gums given how they come in. They could tear the gum and cause sores. This could ultimately lead to infection of the gum, tooth and/or jaw. An abscess may occur needing the tooth to be removed.

The wisdom teeth extraction procedure usually involves an incision to open the gum, and sometimes a small portion of the bone may need to be removed to provide access for the wisdom teeth removal. The wisdom teeth may also need to be divided into segments so it can be removed safely and easily. Perfect wisdom teeth technique and a lot of experience is a must for these surgical procedures. The incision in the gum may then need to be closed with stitches. The patient is always well monitored during the wisdom teeth removal surgery, and a set of instructions are given and discussed for the post-operation recovery period.

Post operation care for wisdom tooth removal

1)                 Do Not Smoke for 12 Hours

Smoking will promote bleeding and interfere with healing. So avoid smoking at least for 12 hours after the surgery.

2)                 Do Not Disturb the Wound

If you disturb the wound, you may invite irritation, infection and/or bleeding. Chew on the opposite side for the first 24 hours.

3)                 Do Not Spit or Suck Through a Straw

This will promote bleeding and may dislodge the blood clot, which could result in a dry socket.

4)                 Control of Bleeding

If the area is not closed with stitches, a pressure pack made of folded sterile gauze pads will be placed over the socket. It is important that this pack stay in place to control bleeding and to encourage clot formation. The gauze is usually kept in place for 30 minutes. If the bleeding has not stopped once the original pack is removed, place a new gauze pad over the extraction site.

5)                 Control of Swelling

After surgery, some swelling is to be expected. This can be controlled through the use of cold packs, which slow the circulation. A cold pack is usually placed at the site of swelling during the first 24 hours in a cycle of 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. After the first 24 hours, it is advisable to rinse with warm saltwater (one teaspoon of salt to eight ounces of warm water) every two hours to promote healing.

6)                 Medication for Pain Control

Anti-inflammatory medications such as Aspirin or Ibuprofen are used to control minor discomfort following oral surgery. Stronger analgesics may be prescribed by dentist if the patient is in extreme discomfort.

7)                 Diet and Nutrition

A soft diet may be prescribed for the patient for a few days following surgery.
