Wisdom Tooth Removal & Surgery

wisdom teeth removal surgery

Why Is Wisdom Teeth Extraction Necessary?

Problems caused by wisdom teeth are often recognised late by the patient. Wisdom teeth cause caries, painful abscesses, developmental cysts, and large bone defects due to these cysts on the contact surfaces with neighbouring teeth. In advanced cases, it can cause many troublesome conditions such as nerve damage and pathological tumours.

No one can predict whether and when these complications will occur. When these complications occur, the treatment processes become more challenging for the patients and the operator.

For these reasons, at Lotus Dental, Maxillofacial Surgeon Specialist. Dr Erdem Kaya recommends the extraction of wisdom teeth before they cause more serious complications.

Specialized at Lotus Dental. Wisdom tooth surgeries are performed by Dr Erdem KAYA under local anesthesia, conscious sedation or general anesthesia. Your doctor will share the best anesthesia option for you.

When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Removed?

  1. Wisdom teeth can be extracted if they have erupted in the wrong direction due to lack of space in the jaws and therefore the patient cannot perform daily care in this area.
  2. Wisdom teeth can be extracted if they are covered with some gum because they cannot erupt completely and therefore infections occur frequently around them.
  3. Wisdom teeth can be extracted if they cause the development of pathologies such as root erosion and caries in neighboring teeth.
  4. Wisdom teeth can be extracted if the orthodontist has recommended the extraction of wisdom teeth for prophylactic purposes before or after orthodontic treatments.
  5. Wisdom teeth can be extracted if the antagonist tooth that provides closure opposite the wisdom teeth has been extracted, congenitally missing or impacted, and ulcerative infections occur in the gingiva as a result of the wisdom tooth hanging here and compressing the gingiva in this area.
  6. If there are cystic or tumor formations around impacted or erupted wisdom teeth, wisdom teeth and pathological lesions can be surgically removed.

Does Every Wisdom Tooth Need to be Extracted?

Wisdom teeth that have found a place in the jaws and erupted in the right position and at the right angle can be left in the mouth if they can be cleaned by the patients.

However, wisdom teeth that cannot find a place to erupt in the jaw, have not fully erupted or erupted towards the cheek usually need to be extracted.

These teeth can cause decay and infections in the surrounding tissues in the long term. Wisdom teeth that patients cannot clean can also be considered in this class.

Can Wisdom Teeth Be Used as Anchor Crown?

Wisdom teeth are not preferred to be used as anchor crown due to their location and position. For the same reasons, when decay or infection requiring filling or root canal treatment develops in these teeth, the primary treatment option is tooth extraction.

However, wisdom teeth can be used as anchor crown in cases where the molars in front of the wisdom teeth are missing and the tooth deficiencies cannot be eliminated with dental implant treatment.

In such cases, the positive and negative aspects of the treatment are discussed in detail with the patient and a decision is made.

When Do We Recommend Wisdom Tooth Removal?

Problems caused by wisdom teeth are often recognized late by the patient. Unbeknownst to patients, wisdom teeth can cause many troublesome conditions such as caries on the contact surfaces with neighboring teeth, painful abscesses, rarely developmental cysts, large bone defects due to these cysts, nerve damage and pathological tumors in progressive cases. When these complications occur, the treatment process becomes more challenging.
