Removal of rudiments of a wisdom tooth

The need to remove the rudiments of wisdom teeth in the DMDL dental treatment in Kristiansand in children arises because of their abnormal development, delayed eruption and displacement of the dentition. If such a molar is not removed in time, it can cause many problems: retention of neighboring teeth, inflammation of the gum tissue, pain in the jaw and the development of follicular cysts.

With an abnormal position, the wisdom teeth grow in the wrong direction, disrupting the bite and the development of neighboring units. Such molars show signs long before they erupt, leading to crowding, aching pain and discomfort in the area around the front teeth. Without dental intervention in DMDL dentistry and resection, impacted molars will constantly damage the soft tissues of the mouth and healthy neighboring units, resting on them and displacing entire sets of teeth. All this will eventually lead to serious aesthetic problems in the future, which will require a lot of time and effort to correct.

Stages of resection (removal) of a wisdom tooth in DMDL:

1) to carry out anesthesia – injection analgesia;

2) opening access to the embryo – exfoliation or incision of the gums;

3) extraction of a tooth unit with universal pliers, an elevator;

4) treatment of the surface of the gums with an antiseptic – cleaning, washing the hole;

5) sutures and bandages.

The procedure for resection of rudiments of wisdom teeth takes no more than 30-40 minutes. The duration depends on the number of units removed at once, their depth, size and location. The achievements of modern medicine mean that such an operation can be performed completely painlessly.

Complications after surgical removal of embryos are very rare and most often occur due to accidental infection of the open hole. After finding himself in such a situation, the patient complains of pain and bad breath. The gums become inflamed, the temperature rises. To prevent complications, it is necessary to strictly follow hygiene and prescriptions prescribed by the doctor. More important. In the first 5-7 days after resection, the patient may experience aching pain. This is normal. It will decrease every day. If this is not the case, complications should be ruled out by visiting a DMDL dentist.
