What Are Potential Wisdom Teeth Removal Complications?
Two of the most significant complications include:
Paraesthesia, also known asnerve damage: It is a less frequently occurring complication. Wisdom teeth entrapped in the jawbone are sometimes close to nerves. These nerves can be bruised or damaged during the tooth removal process. The result is a numbness (called a paraesthesia) of the tongue, lip or chin that can last a few days, weeks, months or may even be permanent.
Dry socket: It is a complication of wound healing following extraction of a tooth. It occurs when either a blood clot has failed to form in the extracted tooth socket or else the blood clot that did form has been dislodged. If clotting doesn’t occur, healing will be delayed. When it happens, dry socket typically occurs 3 or 4 days after the extraction and is accompanied by pain and a foul mouth odour. It will heal and recover with time but your dentist can surely help you out. These usually consist of rinsing the inflamed socket gently followed by placing some type of sedative dressing, which soothes the inflamed bone for a period of time and promotes healing.
How is the IV Sedation Administered for Wisdom Teeth Removal?
A thin needle will be introduced into a vein in your arm or hand. The needle will be attached to an intravenous tube through which medication like versed will be given to help you relax and feel comfortable.
The goal of IV conscious sedation is to use as little medication as possible to get the treatment completed. It is very safe, much safer than oral sedation. With IV conscious sedation a constant drip is maintained via the intravenous tube. At any time an antidote can be administered to reverse the effects of the medications if necessary.
When Should You Get a CT-Scan For Wisdom Teeth Removal?
A CT-scan provides more detailed information about the position of wisdom teeth and their proximity to nerves and sinuses. While not indicated routinely for wisdom teeth, this type of image is helpful for patients who have severe or deeply impacted wisdom teeth and when your dentist is concerned about proximity to nerves, sinuses, or cysts. Although rare, any irritation to the nerve that passes under the lower wisdom teeth, can lead to a period of numbness along the lip and chin area. In most cases, this condition is temporary and resolves gradually in six to eight weeks. Only in rare instances, it may become more prolonged or permanent. Recently, cone beam CT-scan (CBCT) machines like I-CAT have become more readily available in dental offices. With less cost and significantly less radiation, CT-scan is being used more often instead of a panoramic X-ray.
The i-CAT Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging System allows us to provide quick, comfortable, and effective dental imaging for a precise wisdom teeth diagnosis. i-CAT special features include:
8 or 23 second scan that provides enough data for a complete all-on-4 treatment.
A safer diagnosis with less radiation than traditional CT scanners.
Increased comfort — patients are seated in an open environment with plenty of space
A more cost-effective imaging system.
We can easily share the data with patients, so patients stay informed and are able to make educated decisions on their course of treatment.
