GET PAINLESS WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL

The last set of molars or wisdom teeth was of great help to our ancestors to facilitate chewing hard and raw food those days. Often being the last teeth to erupt, they now pose few problems for the modern mouth. But there are exceptions where it is seen as an asset when it does not cause any difficulties. The actual problem arises when they erupt misaligned, causing interruptions by damaging adjacent teeth, surrounding gum tissues, and jawbones. The dental surgical team at Ravi’s Dental care, Vizag, provides the best treatment for wisdom teeth removal and its pain relief.

WHAT ARE WISDOM TEETH?

Wisdom teeth are also known as “third molars.” They erupt into the oral cavity in the late teens or early twenties. By the time these teeth erupt into the oral cavity, jaws may not have adequate space to accommodate, which may result in partial eruption, complete embedment in bone, or even erupt in the wrong position, causing pressure on adjacent teeth and gums.

The procedure used for the removal of wisdom teeth depends on the position and its angulation in the bone. Sometimes they require open surgical extraction.

Radiographs are taken to localize the position of teeth in the bone. Once the evaluation is done, anaesthesia will be given. In some patients, it may require conscious sedation or general anaesthesia for the removal of third molars. The oral surgeon will raise the flap from the gum tissue and, if necessary, bone-cutting to expose the wisdom teeth. Then, the tooth is removed with forceps. The flap is repositioned, and sutures are placed. The sutures are removed after one week.
