SHOULD FULLY IMMERSED 20-Year-Old TEETH BE EXTRACTED?
Fully impacted wisdom teeth and canines, which do not cause any distress, may not be pulled under control by your dentist. However, if the impacted teeth damage the root of the adjacent teeth or form a cyst, they must be extracted.
SHOULD PARTIALLY EFFECTED 20-YEAR-OLD TEETH BE EXTRACTED?
Partially erupted wisdom teeth are difficult to clean and can therefore rot. As a result, the gingiva may swell, bad breath, cheek biting, abscess and pain may occur. In addition, partially erupted wisdom teeth can also cause crowding of other teeth, which is an important reason for extraction.
DO SURGERY REQUIRE GENERAL ANESTHESIA?
Diagnosis of lesions involving soft tissue in the mouth, surgical treatment (cyst or tumoral formations) and operations of hard tissues (20 years old teeth, canine teeth, bone grafts…) are performed under local anesthesia. However, patients with advanced dental fear (phobia) can be treated under general anesthesia or sedation.
