Surgical dentistry

Removal of a wisdom tooth is the first thing with which surgical dentistry is usually associated, although this concept is much broader and covers the specialization of performing surgical interventions in the oral cavity on soft and hard tissues

Delete or not?

After all, we always try, first of all, to preserve our teeth and only in extreme or emergency cases get rid of them.

Removal of a wisdom tooth is carried out according to indications, which are conditionally divided into emergency and planned. The need for emergency tooth extraction occurs in acute inflammation spreading to the bone, as well as in severe toothaches, when dental treatment is no longer possible.

In a planned manner, the tooth is removed with the following indications:

  • In case of obstruction of root canals with chronic peri-root periodontitis, cyst, especially complex sinusitis, neuralgia.
  • A decayed tooth that cannot be saved
  • The third and fourth degree of tooth mobility with periodontitis
  • Atypical position of wisdom teeth or other teeth that injure the mucous membrane, interfere with food intake and speech function.
  • Supernumerary and impacted teeth that cause pain or inflammation (retention cysts).
  • Fracture of the tooth root (mechanical damage)
  • If a tooth extraction is necessary for a successful orthodontic treatment

Factors that can serve as a contraindication to removal (discussed with the doctor):

  • During menstruation (due to poor blood clotting)
  • For some acute diseases (myocardial infarction, hypertensive crisis, infectious diseases)
  • When taking medications that reduce blood clotting
  • First and last trimester of pregnancy

The manipulation of wisdom teeth extraction is not fundamentally different from the extraction of other teeth. Wisdom teeth often grow crooked, underdeveloped in size, do not participate in chewing, their roots are bizarrely curved and inaccessible for full processing and filling, therefore, it is better to warn possible problems in advance by contacting the dentist even during the eruption of wisdom teeth.

When removing a tooth, we guarantee that in all cases the procedure will be painless and using the most modern, gentle surgical techniques.

The decision to remove or save a tooth is more correct to take together with a doctor after a detailed diagnosis. In some cases, it is better to do this earlier.
