Do you have painful purulent inflammation of the wisdom tooth?
If the wisdom teeth activate and cause their growth to move the tooth row or grow in a bad direction, causing unbearable pain, constant or temporary, a specialist examination should be performed as soon as possible and the wisdom teeth removed as soon as possible.
Wisdom teeth extraction or alveotomy
Wisdom teeth extraction or alveotomy is a branch of oral surgery necessary to remove the wisdom tooth which causes pain, inflammations and possible squeezing of other teeth in the front in patients as a result of its abnormal growth. The procedure itself (whether it is surgical or not) is completely painless and postoperative recovery is very individual. There are patients who feel pain, there is a possibility of swellings and unease, so it is impossible to prejudge the patient’s condition after the procedure itself. If an oral surgeon determines an antibiotic treatment, the patient receives an antibiotic, he should put ice during the day, eat cold, mushy and soft food and normally, the pain disappears within 3 – 4 days. There is also a possibility of elevated body temperature. Whether the wisdom tooth should be removed or not is left to the discretion of the dentist on call and they are surgically removed only when there’s a clear indication for it.
