If you have a wisdom tooth that is bothering you, there are several ways to remove it. The best way to pull out your wisdom tooth depends on the individual’s dental history and preferences.
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that people grow. They typically become noticeable around age 25 and can eventually cause toothache, gum pain, and even problems with chewing and swallowing. If you’re experiencing any of these issues, it’s best to get your wisdom tooth removed as soon as possible.
There are a variety of ways to pull out your wisdom tooth. The most common is to use a dentist’s drill and put an anesthesia into the tooth to numb it before extracting it with a metal tool called a dental pick. However, there are also other methods available, such as using a laser or a special type of suction cup. It’s important to know which method is best for you because each has its own risks and benefits.
What you’ll need
To remove a wisdom tooth, you will need:
-A gauze pad
-A water bottle
-Either an oral surgical instrument (spearhead), a dental pick (pointed end), or a specialised extractor/surgical tool (round end)
How to do it
1. Clean the area around the tooth with alcohol cleansers. This will help to disinfect the area and make it easier to remove the tooth.
2. Place an icepack on the affected area for at least 20 minutes. This will reduce inflammation and pain.
3. Make a small cut in the gum tissue next to the tooth using scissors. Gently pull on the gum tissue until the tooth is free from the socket.
Be careful not to tear or damage the gum tissue!
4. If the tooth is impacted, you will need to rinse the area around it with warm water before proceeding with extraction. Apply an irrigation kit to the area and insert the syringe into the cut below the gum line. Squeeze gently until some of the water is forced up through the tube and into the affected area. Be sure to rinse very carefully around the wisdom tooth to remove all impacted dirt and material.
5. Carefully remove the tooth by using either an oral surgical instrument (spearhead), a dental pick (pointed end), or a specialised extractor/surgical tool (round end). Be careful not to damage the gum tissue or teeth!
The worst thrown-away tooth tips
We all know that it can be really tough to get a tooth out, but did you know that there are some really bad ways to try? Here are the five worst thrown-away tooth tips:
1. Using boiling water or ice: Boiling water or ice can actually cause more damage to your teeth than pulling them out with your fingers. This is because boiling water and ice quickly change the temperature inside your mouth and can cause nerves and other delicate tissues to rupture.
2. Trying to pull out the tooth with your fingers: This is actually one of the worst ways to try because if you don’t have a good grip on the tooth, it’s going to move around a lot and you are likely going to end up hurting yourself even more. Instead, use a pair of tweezers or some other type of gripping device if you need to pull out a tooth.
3. Using an electric drill: Electric drills are not always the best choice when it comes to extracting teeth because they can cause too much damage. If you do decide to use an electric drill, make sure that you use the lowest speed possible and wear protective gear like goggles and a face mask.
4. Using a power saw: Power saws can also be risky when it comes to extracting teeth because they involve cutting through hard objects very quickly. If you have decided to adopt this route, make sure that you have plenty of practice beforehand so that you do not wind up injuring yourself in the process.
5. Using a vacuum cleaner: Vacuum cleaners can also be dangerous when it comes to extracting teeth because they can suck the tooth out of its socket. If you do decide to use a vacuum cleaner, make sure that you use the correct setting and wear protective gear like gloves and a face mask.
What are the 3 types of dental implants?
One of the three most popular types of dental implants is endosteal, which is considered to be the safest and most usual. Next comes the subperiosteal, and lastly, the zygomatic implant. This implant has its challenges when it comes to being successfully placed. It is not commonly employed today.
