Surgical Removal of Wisdom Teeth (Unerupted)
Wisdom teeth are the last ones to erupt. They do so at the onset of puberty or in the early twenties. By that time, the rest of the teeth have already taken their place, and there is no free space for the wisdom teeth.
Oftentimes, wisdom teeth remain impacted in the bone or erupt partially but in the wrong position. This leads to the compression of teeth in the jaw, cavities of the adjacent tooth, or inflammation of the tissue around the wisdom tooth and the seventh tooth. The surgical extraction of those teeth is recommended when the patient asks for orthodontic treatment, or already has inflammation symptoms around the adjacent tooth (reddening of the gum covering the eighth tooth, bad breath, and pocket formation). This manipulation is carried out under local anaesthesia. Thanks to piezosurgery, perfect precision can be achieved and maximum patient safety can be ensured, while postoperative discomfort and pain are reduced to a minimum.
