Impacted tooth?

An impacted tooth is a tooth that does not break through the gum. An impacted tooth remains stuck in gum tissue or bone for various reasons. The area may be overcrowded so there’s no room for the teeth to emerge. Teeth may also become twisted, tilted, or displaced as they try to emerge. This results in impacted teeth.

How it identified ?

It show some symptoms the are,

  • Bad breath
  • Difficulty opening the mouth (occasionally)
  • Pain or tenderness of the gums (gingiva) or jaw bone
  • Prolonged headache or jaw ache
  • Redness and swelling of the gums around the impacted tooth
  • Swollen lymph nodes of the neck (occasionally)
  • Unpleasant taste when biting down on or near the area
  • Visible gap where a tooth did not emerge

Procedures take by us :

We recommends removing your wisdom teeth, we’ll take an X-ray of your mouth to help them determine who should carry out the procedure.

1.Anesthesia

You’ll be given an injection of local anesthetic to numb the tooth and surrounding area.

If you’re particularly anxious about the procedure, your dentist or surgeon may give you a sedative to help you relax. This usually involves an injection into your arm.

General anesthetic is rarely necessary. When it’s needed, your wisdom tooth will be removed, although you should still be able to go home on the same day as the procedure.

2.Removing the wisdom tooth

If the tooth hasn’t come through the gum, a small cut (incision) will be made in the gum to access it. A small piece of the bone covering the tooth may also need to be removed.

The tooth may be cut into smaller parts to make it easier to remove through the opening. There’s less need to make an incision if the tooth has broken through the gum.

You’ll feel some pressure just before the tooth is removed. This is because we needs to widen the tooth socket by rocking the tooth back and forth before taking it out.

Surgery to remove wisdom teeth shouldn’t be painful, because the area will be numb. Simple procedures can take a few minutes, but it can take longer than 20 minutes if it’s more complicated.

What to Expect After Surgery

In most cases, the recovery period lasts only a few days. Take painkillers as prescribed by us. The following tips will help speed your recovery.

  • Bite gently on the gauze pad
  • While your mouth is numb, be careful not to bite the inside of your cheek or lip, or your tongue.
  • Do not lie flat. This may prolong bleeding. Prop up your head with pillows.
  • Try using an ice pack on the outside of your cheek (Apply for 15 to 20 minutes).
  • Relax after surgery. Physical activity may increase bleeding.
  • Eat soft foods, gradually add solid foods to your diet as healing progresses.
  • Do not smoke for at least 24 hours after your surgery, its decrease the blood supply
  • Avoid rubbing the area with your tongue or touching it with your fingers.
  • Continue to brush your teeth and tongue carefully.

Preventive measures:

You can’t keep an impaction from occurring, but keeping regular six-month dental appointments for cleaning and check ups Regularly updated dental X-rays may indicate impacted wisdom teeth before any symptoms develop.
