Impacted Tooth Extraction
Impacted teeth are the teeth which either erupt partially or are completely blocked from erupting through the gums. These teeth may remain stuck in the gums or bone either due to overcrowding or due to resistance offered by surrounding structure or oral pathologies. Sometimes overcrowding leaves no room for the teeth to emerge, which may cause the teeth to become twisted, tilted, or displaced as they try to emerge out.
Impacted teeth, as such are often painless and generally do not cause problems. However, there are instances where an impacted tooth or teeth might exert pressure on to the roots of the adjacent teeth, causing a misaligned bite. A partially erupted tooth may trap food debris around it, which can result in pain and gum inflammation and can cause decay in the adjacent tooth. In order to keep unpleasant side effects of impacted teeth like pain, cyst, temporomandibular joint pain, decay, misaligned teeth, relapse of orthodontic treated cases at bay, a surgical intervention is often indicated.
We have highly skilled and experienced oral surgeon who is specialised in wisdom tooth extraction. Surgical dis-impaction is one of the most feared dental procedures and sometimes it may look like a gruesome procedure, but our tooth extraction specialists do it with the utmost sensitivity and care in order to prevent injury to the surrounding structures. For the final diagnosis, CBCT scans may be required in order to prevent damage to the adjacent structure. All the dental extractions, irrespective of the tooth position are performed very gently and precisely under local anaesthesia.
