The process of changing-replacing deciduous teeth with permanent teeth is usually completed by the age of 12, and then 14 teeth in the upper jaw and 14 teeth in the lower jaw can be seen in the mouth. From 7th to 7th.
Wisdom teeth like 8 teeth are placed in the jaw – they usually erupt around the age of 18, but that moment can happen a little earlier and a little later, and sometimes never!
Those people who have enough space in the jaw for all 4 wisdom teeth have become a rarity in the 21st century and we can freely say that they are lucky. In most people, these teeth remain stuck due to lack of space in the jaw. Some are not completely visible in the mouth, so we say that they are impacted, while some are partially visible, but due to their position, size or wrong direction of growth, they cannot grow further and we say that they aresemi-impacted.
It is those semi-impacted teeth that are partly in the mouth and as such cannot be well maintained, which is why they become a big problem and a source of frequent infections, inflammation, swelling …
Impacted wisdom teeth they rarely lead to inflammation, but because of their position during development they can press on the canal in which the nerve is located and then various problems occur, from pain on that side, to tingling or reduced sensitivity of the lips and chin. Sometimes they cause cysts to form….
Then we suggest surgical removal of the wisdom teeth. It is performed under local anesthesia, which provides the patient with complete insensitivity at work. After that, the patient is given oral and written instructions – advice on behavior, and if they adhere to it with painkillers, everything is over in a few days. 😊
In the same way, other impacted teeth are removed, which for some reason lose the direction of growth and get stuck in the jaw.
