Impacted and partially impacted wisdom teeth
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt and most often there is not enough space in the jaw for them or sometimes they remain trapped in the jaw bone due to same obstacle.
If wisdom teeth fail to emerge, or emerges only partially, it is advisable to remove it surgically as it does not disturb the position of the adjacent teeth but significantly simplifies the last teeth area cleaning and prevents infection.
Surgical tooth extraction is intervention conducted under local anesthesia, the wound will be sutured, recovery will last for seven days and stitches from the wound will disintegrate so there is no need for their removal.
As a consequence of long cavities or inadequate root canal treatments, infection at the root apex occurs. Dental treatment of the tooth with infection at the root apex involves the removal of the old filling from the root canal, repetition of the root canal filling and surgical removal of the root apex.
If the infection is not treated in due time it will expand, the cyst will form and then it will be necessary to surgically remove the cyst from the jaw bone or to extract the tooth.
