Dental surgical procedures include:
A) Extraction of teeth
B) Wisdom tooth removal (Disimpaction)
Third molars, also called the wisdom teeth – although they have nothing to do with wisdom – erupt at an age between 18 to 35 years. Occasionally, these teeth do not have space to erupt completely or erupt in awkward directions. At such times, you may have a small flap of gums covering the incompletely erupted tooth. A lot of food may get trapped under the flap, giving rise to swelling, pain and difficulty in opening mouth. This condition is called ‘pericoronitis’.
It may be then deemed necessary, after clinical and x-ray examination to extract these teeth. At times, these teeth are extracted using a minor surgical procedure called Impaction Surgery. Our expert Oral Surgeon will make sure that the procedure is a breeze for you.
