President of Global Dentistry Association, Dentist Zafer Kazak gave information about the subject. Wisdom teeth are usually impacted due to their position in the jawbone and their being covered with gingival or bone. What is 20 Years Tooth Extraction? Do 20-Year-Old Teeth Occur in Every Mouth? Should All Wisdom Teeth Be Extracted?
In cases where a part of the tooth is covered by the gingiva, infection often results in facial swelling and a decrease in jaw opening. As a result of repeated infections, the bone around the wisdom teeth begins to melt and inflammatory tissue occurs instead.
What is 20 Years Tooth Extraction?
Wisdom teeth are usually impacted due to their position in the jawbone and being covered with gingival or bone. In cases where a part of the tooth is covered by the gingiva, infection often results in facial swelling and a decrease in jaw opening.
As a result of repeated infections, the bone around the wisdom teeth begins to melt and inflammatory tissue occurs instead. In addition, due to its position in the jawbone, it can sometimes press on the molars in front of it, in this case pain and crowding in the front teeth occur.
Extraction of wisdom teeth is usually performed surgically, and swelling and pain may occur in this area after extraction. This condition occurs in the presence of bone tissue around the 20-year-old tooth. When hard tissue laser (ER-YAG) is used instead of traditional methods to remove the bone around the tooth, swelling and pain are reduced by 20 percent and tissue healing is accelerated. In addition, with the low-level laser application (LLLT) after the extraction, the recovery period after the 80-year-old extraction and the jaw locking due to muscle spasm after the extraction are shorter.
Do 20-Year-Old Teeth Occur in Every Mouth?
In some people, wisdom teeth may not be inherited at all. If the formed wisdom teeth can find a place in the jawbone, they can come out like other teeth and take their place. In this case, if it does not cause problems in terms of general oral health, it is not necessary to remove wisdom teeth.
Teeth that cannot be placed in the mouth can remain in the impacted or semi-impacted position.
Should all wisdom teeth be extracted?
If the impacted or erupted wisdom tooth is damaging the adjacent teeth and bone due to its position, if it is located in the mouth in a position that cannot be cleaned and if it is damaged due to caries or fracture, it cannot be treated with filling, root canal treatment, crown or any other treatment method. must be pulled. If the extraction is not done on time, it may cause the teeth to become crooked, cause inflammation or permanently damage the anterior tooth.
