FULLY IMPACTED WISDOM TEETH
If a wisdom tooth or a canine is fully impacted (appearing to be completely below the alveolar bone), and is not causing any problem for the adjacent teeth, your dentist may choose not to extract it and follow it up in routine check-ups.
Partially impacted wisdom teeth are difficult, sometimes impossible for the patient to remain ideal oral hygene, therefore there may appear caries, swelling in the gum, halitosis, chronic biting of the cheek, infectious abscess and pain. Also, partially impacted wisdom teeth can cause crowding with the adjacent teeth.
All of these surgical operations (all kinds of wisdom tooth extraction, kanine tooth procedures, soft tissue surgeries and bone reconstruction operations) can be applied with local anesthesia. However, general anesthesia or sedation are possible options for patients with extreme phobia.
