wisdom tooth removal
Get rid of possible complications
visit your dentist regularly!
In oral surgery, wisdom tooth extraction is the most common surgical procedure. During growth, wisdom teeth can cause inflammatory and painful processes in the surrounding gingiva or gums. Difficult growth of the wisdom teeth is mainly accompanied by pain and swelling of the gums, bad breath, difficulty moving the jaw and opening the mouth, and often fever. Often, the growth of wisdom teeth passes without complications, but if they occur, for example, inflammation of the wisdom teeth, it is necessary to surgically remove the wisdom tooth.
Wisdom teeth can be impacted or retained. Impacted wisdom teeth are those wisdom teeth that failed to grow following the dentition because there was a physical obstacle in the way of growth. The most common obstacle is the second tooth. A retained wisdom tooth is a wisdom tooth that follows the wrong direction of growth, too deep a position or some damage to the teeth.
