20-Year-Old Teeth Can Affect Your Whole Body

Extracting an infected tooth is always more difficult and risky. Wisdom teeth should be followed in routine controls and extracted without any problems when necessary. Wisdom teeth are like a bomb with the pin pulled out for most of the patients, if not for every patient. It is not clear when it will become a problem. Usually on your happiest days; It catches you at your wedding, engagement, job interview, when you go on vacation, in situations such as exam time. Wisdom teeth should be carefully monitored under routine dentist control and should be extracted if necessary without causing a problem. Otherwise, when it creates a problem, it usually goes along with the infection. Shooting is not possible at this time. Such patients are taken for tooth extraction following the administration of antibiotics and painkillers.

Oral Hygiene Must Be Very Good

20-year-old tooth extractions have become easier today with the use of laser and ultrasonic devices. Before extraction, especially the roots of wisdom teeth should be evaluated well. For this, two- and three-dimensional tomographic imaging systems are used. The connections of the impacted wisdom teeth with the lower jaw nerve and the connections with the sinus cavity in the upper jaw are taken into account. Oral care of patients after tooth extraction should be at the highest level. Tooth brushing and mouthwash are recommended for this. Smoking after the operation is definitely very harmful. Patients who have had a 20-year-old tooth infection and whose infection has been reduced by using antibiotics avoid tooth extraction because they have recovered. After a certain time, these infections recur and the patients suppress this infection by using antibiotics again. This chain continues two or three times. As a result, the cyst inside the jawbone grows, causing serious bone loss and the growth of cysts and infections. It should be noted that; 20-year-old teeth, which created a problem and were suppressed in some way, are like a bomb with the pin pulled out, and it is not clear when, where and how it will catch you. Postponed wisdom teeth problems cause more serious problems and difficult operation.


Wisdom teeth are the third molars at the very end of both sides of the jaw. They are also called wisdom teeth, as they are the last teeth to erupt in the mouth and usually erupt between the ages of 17-25. Since wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to erupt, there may not be enough space in your mouth for them. This can cause wisdom teeth to become impacted under the gum tissue or bone, or next to another tooth. If the teeth are impacted, swelling occurs. The reason why impacted wisdom teeth are a problem is that there is no genetic need for this tooth. As our jaws get smaller, wisdom teeth are forced to find a place for themselves and therefore cannot come out like other teeth. The wisdom teeth, which cannot find a place for themselves, push the front tooth and press, which causes crowding. In addition, they can easily become inflamed because they are too far behind and the gingiva around them are not in the normal anatomical structure. If wisdom teeth are embedded in the bone, your dentist, oral and maxillofacial surgeon will make an incision in the gums to minimize the amount of bone to be removed and remove the tooth or teeth in parts. Swelling and pain may occur after the procedure, this is normal and will pass within a few days. If this period is prolonged, pain, swelling increases and bleeding occurs, you should call your dentist.

Food Leftovers Get In Between

Partially erupted or crooked wisdom teeth can also cause pain, crowding or disease. Since they cannot come out completely, they become inflamed due to the escaping of food residues between the gum piece on them and bacterial growth. As a result of inflammation of the gum around the tooth; pain, swelling, abscess occurs. They create a suitable environment for caries. In this case, they must be surgically removed. Since the roots of wisdom teeth extracted before the age of 20 will be less developed and tooth extractions performed at this age may cause less complications, I recommend that wisdom teeth be examined between the ages of 16-19.

How to Extract a 20-Year-Old Female?

Fully erupted wisdom teeth usually do not cause problems, but they are difficult to brush because they are too far behind. For this reason, it is recommended to withdraw as a preventive measure in patients whose oral care is not very good. Threading is a fairly routine procedure. Your dentist may suggest that you be put to sleep with sedation or that the area in your mouth be numbed with a local anesthetic with a medicine. Depending on the location, shape and size of the wisdom tooth, the degree of difficulty of the procedure to be applied varies. After a simple extraction, there may be slight swelling, pain and bleeding. Some complex shots that require more specialized operations can also be applied. The precautions and recommendations of your dentist will minimize the side effects.

Non-healing Tooth Extraction Site

A blood clot forms in the cavity formed after tooth extraction, and this clot acts as a sealant and helps the extraction area to heal. If this blood clot breaks out or breaks down within five days of tooth extraction, the bone and nerves of the tooth are exposed. This causes the wound to not heal. This condition occurs in only 2 to 5 percent of people who have had their wisdom teeth removed. Non-healing tooth extraction site is very painful. To relieve the pain, your dentist will first rinse the wound, remove any remaining residue, and apply a medication to protect the area and relieve the pain. Antibiotics to prevent infection; He will also recommend painkillers to relieve the pain. With careful care and rest, the wound heals in 7-10 days.
