Impacted Tooth

IMPACTED TOOTH

The tooth which does not reveal on the mouth in time is called as ”impacted teeth’’.They third biggest molar teeth(which are known as wisdom teeth) are the most common impacted teeth. If there is not enough zone for the third biggest molar teeth and this situation continues if the person is 25 years old, these teeth is called as ”impacted teeth”.They can find just small zones sometimes for being revealed, but it could never  reach the full lenght.If your third biggest molar teeth have no chance to be revealed ,you can visit your dentist in order to get more informations and you can make them extracted before the problems exist as gingival disorders,decay,infection and pain.

Is it possible to be revealed the wisdom teeth when person is 30 years old?

Dental bud of the wisdom teeth begins to occur at 15-16 years old. It can exist on your mouth as non-revealed, semi-revealed or totally revealed at increased ages. If a person who is 30 years old had a dental bud of the wisdom teeth, it could be revealed, semi-revealed or non-revealed.

 What is the reason of the impacted teeth cannot be revealed into the mouth?

According to a theory, if a person takes genetically wide form of jaw from one of his/her parents and takes a narrow jaw from his/her other parents, the wisdom teeth have no enough zones to be revealed and it rests as impacted teeth. And there is another occasion that wisdom teeth firstly grow up horizontally during the normal growing, and after the grown jaw and the improving of the teeth, they turn first mésio-angular and then vertical. If they can not realise the movement accordance with the rotation axis of teeth, they rest as impacted teeth.

Is it necessary to extract the wisdom teeth if there is not a disorder about them?

Even if you have not any disorder about your wisdom teeth, you should get a panoramic x-ray so that your dentist can give you some advices. It could be evaluated after if there is not any problem as their position, infection, and lack of space, decay or halitosis. But it should not be forgotten that they can be revealed in the same time and cause bigger problems and pain. You can extract them in order to prevent to be subject a problem like this.

What kind of problems we can face unless the impacted tooth is extracted?

  • •The wisdom tooth weakens the bone support of the second biggest molar tooth and there could occur the periodontal (gingival) problem in the zone which is already hard to be cleaned. Extracting the wisdom tooth like this in the early period prevents the periodontal problems.
  • •It causes the gingival apsis (pericoronitis)
  • •For some erupted tooth, the infection in this zone springs the soft tissue too and it causes halitosis, pain and oedema.
  • •The situation that mouth cannot be opened (trismus) can occur in some instances. If this case advances more, it can spread the neck and cheek zone. This zone is inclined to infect as it cannot be easily cleaned.
  • •When the wisdom tooth is impacted or half-impacted, the bacterias which cause decay teeth can form decays in both teeth by affecting the both the second biggest molar tooth and the wisdom tooth.
  • •The impacted tooth can cause melting the root of neighbour teeth by pressing on it.
  • •It can be seen the cystic occurrence inflicted because the follicle (cover) around the impacted tooth does not resorber while erupting. These occurrences can cause erosion into the bone by growing and weaken the jaw bone by creating big gaps into the bone. These gaps can cause snag into the jaw bone. Sometimes, although rare these cysts can become tumors.Thewisdom teeth’s extraction must be punctually done in order not to take all of these risks.

The pain of the impacted teeth is felt in which zones particularly?

The wisdom teeth can cause the pressure pain in that zone by pressing at neighbour teeth too while erupting. Generally, the impacted teeth on lower jaw can cause ear ache and sore throat .The upper impacted teeth can cause the pain felt in the sinus zone. There can be the some of aches at eyes and noise too. Extracting the impacted tooth can provide to disappear the pain complaint.

Is it possible to extract the impacted teeth if there is a painful and swelling situation?

The case in point is generally acute and active infection. It is necessary to radio by making the patient use the antibiotics and by getting under control of oral hygiene. Otherwise the factor of spreading the adjacencies of infection occurs, the anaesthetics agent’s effect becomes less and it increases the feeling the pain by patient during the operation. The recovery process of infected zone will be harder and longer after the operation.

What is the most appropriate time for extraction of impacted tooth?

Even though there is not any specific time in order to extract the impacted tooth, it would be better to extract them between 20-30 ages with regard to be faster and without any problem of the recovery process. The operations which will be realised over 40 years old will be harder, post-operation process will pass harder and the recovery interval will be longer.
