WORDS OF WISDOM ON IMPACTED TEETH
A tooth that fails to emerge or fully break through the gum tissue is termed “impacted.”
Often this happens to third molars, also known as wisdom teeth, as they are the last teeth to develop and appear in the mouth. A common problem associated with impacted wisdom teeth involves swelling, pain and infection of the surrounding gum tissue. An impacted wisdom tooth may cause permanent damage to adjacent teeth, gums and supporting bone and may sometimes lead to the formation of cysts or tumours that can destroy large portions of the jaw.
Many problems with wisdom teeth can occur with few or no symptoms. Regular x-rays of the mouth can frequently predict if wisdom teeth will cause any trouble.
Our hospital offers an absolutely painless surgery to remove such teeth. It can be done under local anaesthesia with or without intravenous sedation or under general anaesthesia.
The wisdom tooth extraction takes around 5 to 10 minutes only. As we do all surgeries under strict aseptic precautions, you will get 100% infection-free healing. Even if we do under General Anaesthesia, which is absolutely safe, you will be discharged from the hospital on the day of the surgery so that you could get back to your routine from the very next day.View Gallery
