Wisdom teeth are the name given to a total of 4 teeth, one at each end of the lower and upper jaw, which usually begin to emerge in the 20s. Genetically, in some individuals, it may appear in the form of 3 or 2 seeds.
It can be seen in some individuals at the age of 15-16, in some individuals at the age of 30. While teeth are erupting, some symptoms such as fever, pain, gingival sensitivity, and fatigue can be seen, just like in the teething period of babies.
These types of symptoms can be very challenging for individuals who play an active role in business or education life. For this reason, doctor control is very important in the process of wisdom teeth extraction. If conditions such as decay and recurrent infection are observed, doctors consider it necessary to remove wisdom teeth.
In this way, the individual relaxes in a short time and can return to his normal life in 2-3 days. Otherwise, not only symptoms, but also risks such as infection in surrounding tissues and decay of neighboring teeth may occur. Therefore, individuals should definitely not delay their treatment.
Wisdom Teeth Treatment in Turkey
The process of Wisdom teeth treatment in Turkey begins with the oral examination of the individual. Oral health status is evaluated by the dentist in the clinical setting.
Then, by taking a panoramic x-ray, conditions such as teeth, nerve tissue, soft tissues, the location of the roots of the wisdom teeth are detected immediately.
The area is anesthetized by giving local anesthesia. Then the tooth is extracted by pulling. If necessary, the area is closed with 1-2 small stitches. Usually no stitching is required.

Impacted tooth problem means that in some individuals, one or more wisdom teeth could not come out on time and some of them were visible from the outside and some of them remained buried.
In some individuals, the entire impacted tooth may remain in the jawbone, while in some individuals, a certain part of the tooth may not be visible because there is soft tissue on it.
In both cases, the risk of infection is high and the tooth/teeth should be removed, as they cause problems such as pain and swelling.
My wisdom teeth are swollen and sore. Can my teeth be extracted this way?
In such cases, acute infection is usually detected. For this reason, it is necessary to start antibiotic treatment first and to ensure complete hygiene in the oral tissues. Tooth extraction is performed after antibiotic treatment is completed.
