Oral Surgeon

tooth problems

An Oral surgeon is able to perform the surgical interventions on the hard and soft tissues of the oral, and maxillofacial regions. They use surgical interventions to correct and treat various diseases, injuries and defects and improve functions and appearance of these areas.

Wisdom teeth are the third and last molars on each side of the upper and lower jaws. They are also the final teeth to erupt; they usually appear when a person is in their late teens or early twenties.


ORAL SURGERY ON WISDOM TOOTH

In many cases, maxilla / mandibles (our upper and lower jaw bones) are not large enough to accommodate these teeth and they remain either completely or partially under the gum (impacted).  

When wisdom teeth are causing pain and discomfort, it’s obvious that they need to be removed. Because our existing molars are adequate for chewing, wisdom teeth don’t add much value to the mouth. Before any future problems occur it is best recommended to remove the wisdom teeth. By addressing this in advance it will prevent any further damage to the surrounding teeth that are healthy. You can ask questions to Oral Surgeons or General Dentist.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth – Problems:

 

Most people’s mouths are too small to accommodate four extra molars, and X-rays allow dental professionals to track the position and progress of wisdom teeth throughout development. If your wisdom teeth have enough space to grow into a healthy position, they may not need to be removed, but if the wisdom teeth start growing in sideways or becoming impacted, removal will be recommended.

Some of the problems impacted teeth can cause are as follows:

1.      Pain

2.      Trapping food and debris behind the wisdom tooth/second molar

3.      Infection or gum disease  (periodontal disease)

4.      Tooth decay in a partially erupted wisdom tooth

5.      Damage to a nearby tooth or surrounding bone

6.      Development of a fluid-filled sac (cyst) around the wisdom tooth

7.       Complications with orthodontic treatments to straighten other teeth
