When your jaw lacks space for wisdom tooth eruption or does not have much room for them to erupt – you can seek the help of our dentist at Smile More Dental Clinic. Early removal will help you avoid complications and inconveniences. Impacted wisdom teeth should be dealt with promptly before their root structure forms in full length. The best time for removing impacted wisdom teeth is within 12 or 15 years of age or when the patient is below 21 years old. Problems tend to happen with increasing frequency during the late ’30s.

Health Issues Associated with Troublesome Wisdom Teeth

Infection:

The most common clinical problem we observed is pericoronitis (a gum infection within the wisdom teeth). Due to inadequate room for their coming out, the gum tissue around the wisdom tooth can become inflamed and infected, resulting in on-and-off pain, swelling, and problems with swallowing and chewing. A pain reliever will resolve the discomfort for a while, but more threatening discomfort can occur again and again.

Cyst Formation:

Non-infectious lumps may grow adjacent to the area of the impacted wisdom tooth. Cysts are balloon-like sacs containing fluid in the jaw bone usually attributed to an impacted tooth. They slowly expand and destroy adjacent jawbones and sometimes the teeth. Although rare, tumors can happen when you put off wisdom teeth removal past the adolescent years. If cyst forms, they can be quite problematic to manage. Because the absence of discomfort doesn’t mean impacted teeth may not cause future complications, like a cyst.

Teeth Crowding/ Crooked Teeth:

Impacted third molars or wisdom teeth that lack space for eruption result in crowding of the teeth. Mostly evident in the front teeth, affecting their alignment. The front teeth most often affected are lower dentition and even after dental braces treatment. However, a few other influences may cause teeth to become crooked in early adulthood or even after dental braces treatment. Impacted teeth, unerupted or malposed wisdom teeth may contribute to teeth crowding and alignment problems. They may not cause infection or become swollen, so you would want not to bother them. Wisdom teeth removal is usually recommended to avert long-term damage to your teeth, gums, and jaw bone. For ease and peace of mind, it is better to deal with their removal while you are much younger since they are most difficult to treat after the late ’20s.

Harm to Adjacent Teeth:

Because wisdom teeth are found furthest back, compared to other teeth, they are hard to brush, difficult to clean, and may retain food particles and dental plaque. Most likely, tooth decay, gum disease, bone loss, and damage of the adjacent molar can happen. If left to stay, impacted and malposed third molars are a future annoyance.

WHAT IF YOU DELAY WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL AFTER YOUR TEENAGE OR YOUNG ADULT YEARS?

As wisdom teeth grow, the roots become lengthier, and the jaw bone becomes more solid and hard. Most impacted wisdom teeth removal when performed in your thirties, forties, or beyond, the surgery can become more strenuous and challenging. They tend to be more fused to the bone and involve major and delicate nerves in the jaw. The recovery period is prolonged, and associated post-operative complications are most likely to come out. Since adults usually have medical conditions or are taking maintenance medications – they may have delayed wound healing can experience bleeding or swelling. As commonly observed, younger patients typically heal faster, with more predictable results and few known complications.

HOW IS THE WISDOM TOOTH REMOVAL PROCESS USUALLY DONE AT SMILE MORE DENTAL CLINIC?

Our clinic usually assists patients with a well-planned wisdom teeth removal or surgery. This way, you can vouch for safer and convenient removal of your impacted third molar.

1.) We usually get detailed information about patients’ medical and dental history so we can be more accustomed to their well-being.
2.) We take the necessary x-rays and diagnostic aids to further examine the tooth that requires surgical removal.
3.) We prescribed pre-medication: usually antibiotics (taken 1 to 3 days before the surgery); if we checked, there is a swelling or gum inflammation associated with impacted teeth. Inflamed tissues are acidic and known to lessen anesthetic potency.
4.) We usually verify if the patient has known allergies. We conduct a “skin test” for local anesthesia that we use if the patient has never had a tooth extraction history or never recalled that he received such anesthesia before.
5.) We provide the patient with profound anesthesia that can sustain comfort through the entire surgical duration and an extra more time after they leave the clinic
6.) For impacted wisdom teeth, we usually make an incision (flap or gum slit) to be able to locate and expose the tooth that needs removing.
6.) We carefully remove the tooth, constantly checking if the patient is just fine or feels discomfort anytime. We ensure continuous pain management for the entire wisdom teeth removal procedure. Usually, the anesthesia blocks the pain sensation. We tell the patient to discern pain versus pressure since they can feel the latter sense, but well endured. By being sure that pain is gone, the patient need not worry about the discomfort of the procedure.
7.) The dentist or dental surgeon removes the wisdom tooth using surgical tools (like: “dental elevator”), cutting the teeth into segments or combining both. The procedure will take around 30 minutes or more than an hour. Recent advances in dentistry allow patients to undergo quicker wisdom tooth removal. With careful handling, patients can experience rapid healing and minimal post-operative discomfort.
8.) Our dentist/dental surgeon put sutures on top of the wound for effective bleeding control and faster healing.

We recognize that patients have a different level of tolerance in undergoing surgical procedures, such as wisdom teeth removal, and we look after their comfort at all times.

Consider the following suggestions:

  • You can have a light meal a few hours before the surgery, but not on a full stomach. Because heavily feeding your gut can cause nausea or vomiting, rare possible anesthetic complications related to eating much before surgery. Tending on such a problem may cause a delay in the procedure.
  • We also recommend that the patient be accompanied by parents, family members, or responsible adults when undergoing this procedure. To ensure that someone can assist them going home when traveling from the clinic after the surgical operation.

PATIENTS INSTRUCTIONS FOLLOWING WISDOM TOOTH REMOVAL
(POST- SURGICAL HOME CARE):

The removal of impacted teeth is a complex surgical procedure. Post-operative care is critical. By carefully following the dentist’s directions, patients can help minimize unnecessary pain and complications from infection and swelling.

IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING SURGERY

The gauze or cotton placed over the surgical site should be held in place for at least 15 to 30 minutes, after which they should be removed and discarded. Continue biting the gauze for a few more hours, periodically replacing them if needed.

Refrain from rinsing your mouth vigorously or picking on the wound area or surgical site. Vigorously gargling water can lead to bleeding by breaking the formed blood clot.

Place ice packs or do a cold compress on the side of the face close to the area of surgery.

Take the recommended pain relievers as soon as you start to feel discomfort. Take the pain killer to relieve you of any pain or discomfort before the fading of the local anesthetic.

Avoid strenuous activities after the surgery and resume regular activity when you feel comfortable, usually after a week or beyond.

  • You can have a light meal a few hours before the surgery, but not on a full stomach. Because heavily feeding your gut can cause nausea or vomiting, rare possible anesthetic complications related to eating much before surgery. Tending on such a problem may cause a delay in the procedure.

“It took me a month to put in a convenient schedule as I wanted Dr. Richard Liao to handle my case. His schedule is really full and now I know why. He is really an artist and meticulous in carrying on the dental treatment. He showed fantastic attention to details and patiently performed my extensive dental cosmetic needs, in a short span of time. At times, Dr. Mike Escosia has to take charge of other dental works, especially Root Canal, and it does not hurt at all. I am extremely happy with the work I received from Smile More Dental Clinic. The staff are friendly and helpful, too! Now, I have been getting a lot of compliments for wearing a beautiful smile!”

I will be seeing them for my dental cleaning visit after 6 months. Good job guys!”
