If a prognosis of damaged tooth is bad and all other tooth restoration techniques are irrational, the tooth should be removed. Atraumatic (minimally destructive) tooth removal decreases bone resorption and leaves a better condition for dental implant placement if needed. Where the dental implantation is planned, tooth implant can be placed in immediately after tooth removal. In a complicated situation (big infectious lesion) implantation should be postponed; after the tooth removal extraction socket augmentation procedure can be performed, i.e. collagen, artificial bone etc. is placed in the socket.
Sometimes due to bad position, incomplete eruption or other reasons wisdom teeth need to be removed. Because of improper position and plaque accumulation, they can cause gingival inflammation, pain, inflammation, and caries of neighboring teeth. Extraction of wisdom tooth removal can be a simple or complex surgical procedure, which depend on position of the tooth in the bone, other anatomical factors. During tooth removal root separation or osseous plastic might be needed. In more complex situations tooth removal can be performed under general anesthesia.
Besides extraction of the teeth, dental cysts and other oral surgery procedures are provided by highly qualified specialists of ProDentum clinic.
Excess of gingiva covering incompletely erupted wisdom tooth does not contact with antagonist tooth, causes recurrent inflammation and hinder personal hygiene and causes caries on adjacent teeth. These are the indications to remove such tooth.
