We provide professional support in Dental and month health
The parts of our teeth that are visible in the mouth are called crowns, and the
invisible parts that remain in the bone are called roots. Our teeth
consist of several layers. The outermost part of the crown part is enamel. Enamel,
which is one of the hardest tissues of our body, covers the parts of our gums
surrounded by the bone underlying a cementum layer. Under the enamel and
cementum layer, there is the dentin part. It is the largest part of the
tooth and contains nerve endings. Under the dentin layer, there is a pulp
containing nerves and vessels. Together with the pain mechanism, it is the
harbinger of the conditions that occur in the teeth.
Conditions that require the extraction of impacted teeth
• Caries: Bacteria and food residues may accumulate around the impacted tooth
and rot the impacted tooth or neighboring tooth. Such a bruise is very
difficult to clean, and in this case, infection and pain may develop.
• Feeling of Pressure: Due to the pressure of the impacted teeth on the
neighboring tooth, a feeling of compression and pain may develop in other
teeth. If the necessary intervention is not done, the loss of neighboring
teeth can also be seen.
• Cyst formation: Although it is not common, cysts can occur in the soft and
hard tissues around the impacted tooth. Cysts can cause bone tissue
destruction, jaw enlargement and damage to neighboring teeth. Things
• Remove the tampon placed in your mouth after 30 minutes and do not put anything in its place.
• Do not eat or drink anything within 2 hours following the procedure, then eat warm and soft things.
• Do not smoke for 48 hours.
• It is natural to have bleeding in the form of leakage within 48 hours, to smell or taste blood in your mouth. Avoid spitting blood.
• It is normal to have swelling after surgery.
• Apply a cold compress to the operation area in the first 24 hours.
• Use the medicines recommended by your doctor in a timely manner, without delay and as instructed.
• Your stitches should be removed 7-10 days following the operation day.
Before starting the tooth whitening treatment, your dentist will check the
condition of your gums and your tooth color. First of all, if there is any
infection or tartar in your gums, they are treated and completed
first. Then, the tooth whitening method, which is safe and suitable for
the structure and color of your teeth, is chosen by your dentist.
Teeth that are bleached with different tooth whitening methods continue to
remain white for a few years. But this time varies from person to
person. Eating and drinking habits, smoking and brushing habits affect the
duration of the teeth white.
