It is a department that performs the diagnosis and surgery of all kinds of diseases related to soft tissue (cheek, palate, tongue, lips) and hard tissues (teeth, bones) in the oral cavity by performing operations in the operating room under local anesthesia, general anesthesia or sedation anesthesia.
They are the third molars, located at the back of the row of teeth. These teeth, which usually last in the twenties, are often partially erupted (emerging) or remain embedded in the jawbone due to reasons such as lack of space in the jaw, deviation in the eruption position or bone density in the relevant area.
If the fully erupted wisdom teeth in the mouth can be cleaned easily and there is no deep caries formation on them, they do not need to be extracted. However, wisdom teeth that cannot be easily cleaned with dental floss and brushes, that have caries that cannot be treated, and that rub against the cheek or tongue and cause the person to bite their cheek and tongue involuntarily, need to be extracted.
Since the partially erupted wisdom teeth cannot be cleaned easily, they can rot easily and cause a bad odor in the mouth. Wisdom teeth, which cannot stay completely in the bone and cannot erupt, can lean on the roots of the second molars right next to them and damage that tooth over time or sometimes form cysts around them.
If this type is infected and causes pain and abscess, they should be pulled out immediately.
As a result of radiographic examination, formations that should not normally be encountered may be encountered. In these cases, the relationship between the surrounding tissues and the existing structure is determined and the need for surgical intervention is determined.
