Doctors for Wisdom Teeth in Victoria Road, Hubli-Dharwad
ratings and reviews)
Though it has nothing to do with wisdom, people refer to this issue as Wisdom Teeth because they are the final and third set of molars that one gets in their late teens or early twenties. Actually these are just misaligned teeth, which don’t have any function but can emerge at the most unlikely of places in the mouth like above the tongue or even at extreme corners of your molars. The signs here include extreme tooth pain and fever.
HOW IS WISDOM TEETH DIAGNOSED?
A tooth extraction is a relatively routine procedure. The dentist or a dental specialist, called an oral maxillofacial surgeon, will recommend either local anesthesia, if the teeth are erupted, or IV sedation or general anesthesia, if the teeth are impacted. The oral surgeon will recommend the best anesthetic option to the person who is having their wisdom teeth extracted.
HOW IS WISDOM TEETH TREATED?
The treatment procedure depends on the problems caused by these Wisdom Teeth. In some cases, complete removal of the teeth is suggested and medicines are given for pain relief and fever. In other cases, the patient may let the teeth be if it is not causing any problems.
DID YOU KNOW?
After a tooth is extracted a blood clot forms in the tooth socket and seals the area so that it can heal. A dry socket occurs during the first five days after extraction, when the blood clot breaks down or is dislodged, it exposes the bone and nerves of the tooth. Only 2 to 5% of people will develop a dry socket.
