  • symptomatic
  • One review found that 11% of teeth will have evidence of disease and are symptomatic, 0.6% will be symptomatic but have no disease, 51% will be asymptomatic but have disease present and 37% will be asymptomatic and have no disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissues

  • partially
  • Screening for the presence of wisdom teeth often begins in late adolescence when a partially developed tooth may become impacted. (wikipedia.org)
  • The soft tissue covering a partially erupted tooth is known as an operculum, an area which can be difficult to access with normal oral hygiene methods. (wikipedia.org)
  • extractions
  • The American Public Health Association, for example, adopted a policy, Opposition to Prophylactic Removal of Third Molars (Wisdom Teeth), because of the large number of injuries resulting from unnecessary extractions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Simple extractions are performed on teeth that are visible in the mouth, usually under local anaesthetic, and require only the use of instruments to elevate and/or grasp the visible portion of the tooth. (wikipedia.org)
  • trauma
  • Signs of trauma on the operculum, such as indentations of the cusps of the upper teeth, or ulceration. (wikipedia.org)
  • roots
  • This nerve is frequently very close to the roots of the lower wisdom teeth. (anushjohnoms.com)
  • Having these teeth out between the ages of 12 and 18 usually provides shorter roots so that the nerve is not so close to the roots of these teeth. (anushjohnoms.com)
  • Sometimes, when there is a high risk to the inferior alveolar nerve, only the crown of the tooth will be removed (intentionally leaving the roots) in a procedure called a coronectomy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some teeth are more difficult to remove for several reasons, especially related to the tooth's position, the shape of the tooth roots and the integrity of the tooth. (wikipedia.org)

  • wound
  • Allowing the wound to heal undisturbed can help prevent dry socket, said Dr. Michael Ellis, an associate professor with Texas A&M College of Dentistry. (drugs.com)
  • Smoking is avoided for at least 24 hours as it impairs wound healing and makes dry socket significantly more likely. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rarely

  • dentists
  • Although many dentists remove asymptomatic impacted third molars, both American and British Health Authorities recommend against this routine procedure, unless there is evidence for disease in the impacted tooth or the near environment. (wikipedia.org)
