Dental Extractions & Wisdom Teeth Management
Understanding Dental Extractions Dental extractions involve removing a damaged or impacted tooth, often due to trauma, disease, or crowding. Among these, wisdom tooth extractions are the most frequent procedures performed in modern dentistry.
All About Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth, commonly referred to as third molars, emerge during late teens for most individuals. Their development can sometimes lead to dental complications:
- Impaction: Wisdom teeth might not have adequate space to emerge correctly, causing them to become “impacted” — either lodged within the gum or jawbone.
- Infection Risks: A partially emerged wisdom tooth is tough to clean, leading to potential trapped food particles, which can escalate to infections or gum swelling.
- Positional Issues: Located at the mouth’s back, wisdom teeth can grow at odd angles, applying undue pressure on adjacent teeth. This misalignment may result in pain or damage to surrounding teeth.
