Tooth Extraction / Impacted Tooth Extraction / Impacted Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Due to today’s technology and advancing medical techniques, the need for tooth extraction has been minimized. The need for tooth extraction is done for teeth that show too much damage or for teeth that are impacted in the jaws. Apart from these, we rarely extract the teeth determined by the orthodontist before orthodontic treatment.

Why do teeth remain impacted?

Mostly, it remains buried due to the lack of a space where it can last. Sometimes the direction or position of the tooth is not suitable for eruption. Due to the lack of space, the teeth can be completely impacted, or they can be opened to the oral environment and remain in a semi-buried position.

Why should impacted or semi-impacted teeth be extracted? Can’t it be pulled?

Teeth that do not fit the oral environment should be extracted. While trying to erupt impacted teeth, they can compress other teeth in the mouth and cause crowding; pain, abscess, facial swelling, ear/neck pain. It causes very severe facial pain, pain that radiates to the head and ear. Semi-impacted teeth that cannot be kept clean can infect the surrounding healthy teeth, rot or swell the gums. It is necessary to extract impacted/semi-impacted teeth that cause a lot of problems.

What should be considered after tooth extraction?

The sterile pad placed after tooth extraction should be bitten for 30 minutes.
No food should be eaten or drunk for the first 3 hours after tooth extraction.
Mouthwash should not be done for the first 24 hours.
Spitting and shaking should be done gently and slowly as needed.
Hot food and beverages are prohibited for the first 48 hours.
After tooth extraction, it is very important for the patient to brush their teeth and do oral care at home.
The teeth in front of and behind the extracted tooth must be brushed, but it should be done slowly.
Applying cold compresses for the first 24 hours, when your doctor deems it necessary, minimizes the swelling that may occur.
Facial swelling may occur, especially after impacted tooth extraction.
We do not give antibiotics after every tooth extraction, but if the doctor deems it necessary, antibiotics can be used for the following 5 days.
In cases where stitches are placed, the stitches should be removed 7/10 days after tooth extraction.
There may be slight bleeding in the form of leakage in the first 24 hours after tooth extraction.
When an unexpected situation occurs, that is; In case of complaints such as high fever, non-stop bleeding, severe pain and bad breath after tooth extraction, consult your doctor.
It is normal to have a decrease in mouth opening after difficult extractions. This may take 4-5 days after the shoot.

Cyst operations / Pathology / Apical Resection

Jawbone cyst may occur in the mouth, in the jaw bones, depending on the teeth or independently of the teeth. If these cysts are attached to existing teeth, they are called dental ‘odontogenic’ cysts. Dental cysts can occur due to inflammation of the teeth, as well as around the impacted unerupted teeth. Regardless of the cause of formation, cysts must be removed. Cysts are treated with different treatment approaches according to their formation and size.

How are dental cysts treated?

The treatment approach varies according to the size of the cyst. For cysts originating from the tooth, the root canal treatment is performed first. In the following process, the operation we call ‘apical resection’ is applied. We can apply bone powder or PRF according to the size of the cavity that will arise after the cyst is removed. In the presence of cyst in the jawbone, please consult us for the treatment approach and process.

Should cysts be removed?

Cysts are small sacs that contain fluid. These small vesicles tend to enlarge. As they grow, they cause damage and can put pressure on the surrounding tissues and nerves. From time to time, they can become inflamed and cause swelling and pain on the face. If possible, cysts should be removed. Tooth cysts can form in areas that cannot be removed. In these cases, the tooth causing the cyst should be extracted. Existing cysts definitely require treatment, after diagnosis, treatment should be done without waiting.

What should I pay attention to after the cyst is removed? How is the process going?

After the cyst operation, just like after tooth extraction or implant operation, there were issues to be considered. It is necessary to apply ice compresses at intervals for the first 24 hours and avoid hot foods and beverages. It is necessary to use the drugs prescribed by your doctor and to brush the teeth as best we can. It is forbidden to rinse the mouth too much, spit, gargle. After the operation, we can send the tissues that we find suspicious to the laboratory as a result of pathological examination. Cysts may rarely cause cancer formation. Some types of cysts may be recurrent. During the follow-up of our patients, pathological evaluation of the cyst gains importance.
