The teeth are units that have not erupted, in dentistry they are called impacted. They are located under the gum. In such cases, there is a need for removal. The doctor must prescribe an x-ray to determine the exact location of the tooth.
Genetic predisposition is one of the main reasons. Genetics are very important in the placement of teeth. Removal of impacted teeth is prescribed for patients of different ages. These can be wisdom teeth and canines. Only a doctor can determine the presence of such teeth. The removal process consists of the following stages:
- the introduction of anesthesia;
- making an incision on the gum;
- exposure of the tooth;
- extraction of a tooth and its fragments;
- antiseptic treatment.
At the final stage, the doctor sutures the incision. It is important to take into account that any manipulations can be carried out only if there are no inflammatory processes in the oral cavity.
