ELIMINATING THE PAIN of wisdom teeth.
The average adult has thirty-two teeth affixed in their mouth by the age of eighteen — sixteen teeth on the top and sixteen teeth on the bottom. The average mouth, however is made to hold only twenty-eight teeth.
For some individuals, It can be painful to have the remaining four teeth anchored in the back of the mouth called third molars — also known as you wisdom teeth. When they align properly, and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not always transpire.
WHY SHOULD I REMOVE MY WISDOM TEETH
The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly growing within the mouth.
- Growing sideways
- Partially emerging from the gum
- Trapped beneath the gum and bone
Impacted teeth can take many positions in the bone as they attempt to find a pathway that will allow them to grow successfully and can eventually erupt into many health issues. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to infection, further causing swelling, stiffness, pain and illness. They can also disrupt the orthodontic or natural alignment of teeth.
A serious issue that should never be taken lightly is when tumors or cysts form around the impacted wisdom tooth, resulting in the destruction of the jawbone and healthy teeth.
WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTION PROCEDURE
Stage 1 | Incision
Wisdom tooth extraction surgery involves making an incision through the gum tissue that presides over the tooth
Stage 2 | Detach Tissue
The connective tissue between the tooth and the bone is gently detached for easier removal of the wisdom tooth
Stage 3 | Suturing
The opening in the gum is sutured and will begin to heal immediately.
