Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars or wisdom teeth, are usually the last four teeth to develop, a phenomenon that generally occurs in the late teens.
Because they are trapped or impacted in the maxilla, to the point that in some cases they do not erupt or do so in a horizontal position, they can cause crowding or movement of other teeth.
Due to their irregular location, they can also cause other inconveniences, such as:
- Inflammation in the area of the emerging tooth
- Persistent pain
- Formation of localized cavities
- Difficulty in carrying out adequate dental hygiene
- Pressure on the entire tooth structure
- Difficulty performing a prosthetic correction
Considering that most third molars are useless and, failing that, they tend to cause discomfort and inconvenience, in dental clinics we could recommend their extraction.
To remove a tailpiece, an incision is made to remove the overlying tissue and part of the bone, to expose the crown of the impacted tooth. The tooth is then removed in one piece or cut into parts, using a surgical procedure.
Wisdom tooth surgery is a minimally invasive procedure and, through the application of peripheral anesthesia or sedation, it is also almost painless.
Each extraction requires the closure of the wound, using absorbable stitches or with a surgical suture that is removed between five and eight days after the intervention.
