20 Years Teeth in 7 Questions

20 Years Teeth in 7 Questions

What is a Wisdom Female?

The third molars, which erupt from the end of the tooth rows in the jaws, are generally known as wisdom teeth, as they complete their development around the twenties and come into the mouth. Depending on the lack of space in the jaws, the bone density of the area where the tooth comes out, and the root anatomy of the tooth, these teeth may come out completely or remain completely or semi-impacted in the jawbone.

Is it necessary to have a wisdom tooth extracted?

It is not necessary to have every wisdom tooth extracted. When evaluating for extraction, it is taken into account whether the teeth are fully impacted or not, how much the tooth is embedded in the jawbone, and the contact of the impacted tooth with the adjacent tooth. Sometimes eruption cysts may occur due to the sac in which the tooth develops. If these cysts grow unnoticed, they can weaken the jawbone. Fully impacted teeth that do not cause pain can be followed by your doctor with routine controls and extracted if necessary.

Oral hygiene is very important in teeth that have completely or partially erupted in the mouth. It is very difficult to reach these teeth, which are in the most backward region, with a toothbrush. Wisdom teeth that cause abscesses due to caries must be extracted.

How does a Twenty Years Toothache pass?

When the impacted wisdom teeth try to come out, it can cause pain in the ear area and temples in the upper jaw, under the chin in the lower jaw and towards the neck. Sometimes swelling and tenderness may occur in the lymph nodes in these areas. When such a situation develops, the patient should definitely consult a doctor. Depending on the severity of the situation, the physician prescribes the right antibiotic and pain reliever to the patient. Tooth eruption pain is controlled over time when the drugs are used regularly for as long as the physician deems appropriate and completely disappears after the related tooth is extracted.

What happens if a wisdom tooth is not extracted?

After using the medicine given by the doctor, the teeth that complain of pain should be extracted as soon as possible. The comfort that the drug gives is valid for a while. In cases where the patient’s immunity is weak and oral hygiene is not corrected, the tooth starts to hurt again. Cysts form around impacted teeth, which constantly complain but are suppressed by taking antibiotics, and weakens the jawbone over time.

How is wisdom tooth surgery done?

In buried tooth operations, the relevant area is anesthetized with local anesthesia. The bone around the tooth is removed with appropriate tools and the tooth is extracted. After the extraction, the area is stitched. Stitches are removed between 7-10 days. If the physician deems it necessary, he prescribes antibiotics and painkillers after the operation.

Is pain felt in wisdom tooth surgery?

If the anatomy of the region is evaluated well and appropriate and adequate anesthesia is applied in impacted tooth operations, pain is not felt during the procedure.

What should be done after wisdom tooth surgery?

The tampon placed after the extraction is to stop the bleeding. After the tampon is bitten tightly for half an hour, a clot forms in this area and the bleeding stops. However, spitting and shaking should not be done for the first 24 hours. After the operation, swelling may occur in the related area due to edema. Edema should be kept under control by applying ice compresses for the first 24 hours. Smoking and alcohol should not be used in the first week. Acidic, spicy and hot foods should not be consumed in the first week, and oral hygiene should be considered. If prescribed, drugs should be used regularly.
