Tooth Extraction and Wisdom Female

# Tooth extraction

Tooth extraction is the removal of teeth and is done in the following cases

  • the tooth is seriously decayed
  • advanced periodontal disease ("gum disease")
  • the tooth is broken beyond repair
  • The need to remove other teeth because they are not well positioned in the mouth (such as impacted wisdom teeth)

    and if preparation for braces requires extraction of teeth to make room for replacement teeth.

    Normal tooth extraction is a simple procedure and is normally completed in one go. After tooth extraction, the gums are usually left to heal and long-term predisposition to teeth is prevented before the gap is closed with dental implants or dental bridges or dentures. # Wisdom tooth

    The wisdom teeth are the third molars. Normally there are three permanent molars that develop in each quarter of the mouth. Wisdom teeth usually try to grow in between the ages of 18 and 20. Surgical removal of impacted wisdom teeth is the removal of impacted third molars. For this reason, many dentists recommend removing impacted wisdom teeth to prevent potential problems.

    # Effects of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
  • Bacteria and plaque formation
  • decay of neighboring teeth
  • Cyst (fluid-filled sac) or tumor formation from the follicle
  • tumor development
  • infection
  • jaw and gum disease
