Impacted Teeth

Impacted-Tooth-Citylife-Dental-New-Delhi

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars. They erupt when people get in their late teens or early twenties. The wisdom teeth are a valuable asset to the mouth. But sometimes if they grow horizontally or are not vertically aligned, they are considered as misaligned or impacted teeth and require removal.

Mal-alignment can be toward or away from the second molars, or be angled inward or outward. Poor alignment of wisdom teeth can damage adjacent teeth or your jawbone.

How are the impacted teeth diagnosed?

A simple x-ray of your teeth will help to identify if any wisdom tooth is growing horizontally or causing any impaction.

How is the impacted tooth treated?

A wisdom tooth that is fully erupted through the gum can be extracted as easily as any other tooth. However, a wisdom tooth that is underneath the gums and embedded in the jawbone will require an incision into the gums and then removal of the portion of bone that lies over the tooth.

Will I need an anesthetic and is it painful?

Before removing the impacted tooth,  the surrounding tissue will be numbed with a local anesthetic, so that you do not feel any pain.

What to expect after impacted tooth removal?
  • Facial swelling: To minimise it place a piece of ice, wrapped in a cloth, on that area of your face on a schedule of 10 minutes on, followed by 20 minutes off.
  • Bleeding from the gum: To control it, position a piece of clean moist gauze over the empty tooth socket and bite down firmly.
  • Antibiotics are prescribed by your dentist.
  • Liquid diet till the numbness has settled and thereafter soft diet for first few days.
  • After 24 hours: Rinse your mouth with warm salty water.
  • Complete healing: this will take few weeks for the area where the tooth was removed to get filled.

Frequently asked questions

Do I have 2 or 3 or 4 wisdom teeth?
  • You may have 2 wisdom teeth or you may have 4. It is also possible that you may not have any wisdom teeth at all. In cases when the wisdom teeth appear they tend to push through the gums when you’re in your late teens or early 20s.
Does it mean that if I have wisdom teeth then they should be removed?
  • If your wisdom teeth are not a source of any pain or problem, then there is no need to panic or have them removed. Sometimes the wisdom teeth can erupt horizontally and not vertically and can cause impaction as they erupt through the gum. This can cause pain and infection. It is then best to have dental opinion and if advised then to have them removed. If your wisdom teeth are not fully through the gum, they are more susceptible to decay, gum disease and pain.
How long will it take for the pain and swelling to settle after extraction?
  • You will notice that things are getting more comfortable in 1 to 2 weeks following the extraction. The gum tissue will continue healing for up to 4 weeks. The healing of the bone can continue for up to 8 months following extraction.
What are the symptoms of impacted wisdom teeth?
  • It can start off with some swelling on your face, or most commonly pain. This can also be the case if you have swollen glands and a fever running alongside your toothache. If you have noticed any of these features, please give us a call to book a consultation.
Is the removal of the wisdom tooth done under anaesthesia?
  • You may have local or general anaesthetic to numb the tooth before it is extracted. During the surgery the gum tissue is opened first and then the impacted tooth is removed. The gums are stitched back after the surgery.

Great experience

I got the periodontal surgery done by Dr Sajili. Initially I was a bit apprehensive about the procedure, but the Dr made the entire process very easy and smooth. She was very patient in explaining everything and very supportive in the post surgery follow-ups.

Most Ethical Dental Surgeon

“Visited Dr. Sajili Mittal’s clinic a few years ago after having a number of “not good” experiences. Was a bit scared too initilally. But the way my problem was handled at her clinic made me so at ease, comfortable and relaxed.

At Dr. Sajili Mittal’s clinic, everything is explained in detail & giving all the possible options to be decided by the patient himself. Since my first visit, I never felt uncomfortable and always feel free to discuss even the smallest possible issues. Besides being a good dentist, Dr. Sajili Mittal, is a very good human being too. She makes her patients comfortable, understands their issues and accordingly suggests possible and affordable options ( NOT creating fear factor).

Besides, being highly experienced and knowledgeable, Dr. Sajili Mittal is a person of ETHICS and MORALITY which is rare to find these days in our society. My Best Wishes to Dr. Sajili Mittal.”

Best Root Canal Treatment by Dr. Sajili

Hemant-Dua

“Every experience I’ve had in the dentist’s chair has been miserable, until now. Citylife Dental has the most compassionate team of dentists I’ve ever seen. They understand (and therefore can eliminate) fear and pain. The work they’ve done on my teeth which includes root canal, scaling and whitening has been top quality. Add to that their ability to calm the nervous wreck in the chair and you have a combination of skills that can’t be beat. I’m no longer afraid, and that’s pretty much a miracle. I can’t recommend these guys enough.”

Brilliant Citylife Dental

Saraansh-Bansal

My experience at Citylife Dental was very good.
Dr. Sajili is a very professional dentist and made sure I understood everything. Her patient handling and education skills are excellent. She is a confident doctor and knows the art of dentistry well. The staff at Citylife Dental was humble and courteous.
After I was done I expected a very large bill but the prices were nominal.
Even though I don’t like going to a dentist , but Citylife Dental made it a good experience.
Next visit due after 6 months!

Best Dentist for NRI’s in New Delhi

Harit-Dutt

Well to start with I met Dr.Sajili and her team 10 years ago when i was planning to move abroad. It started with basic gum issues and root canal.

Now i am an NRI but whenever i visit India make sure my dental issues are handled properly. Thanks goes to Dr. Sajili for her warm, affectionate, caring and patient nature. A professional touch on the top is what everyone gets for sure. She is intelligent, confident, has a sound experience in her specialisation and makes sure the patient in contented at the end of the treatment. Well as far as her clinic is concerned she does not compromise on quality and hygiene.AT work front she even follows her patients after the treatment is complete for their concern if any. I was also given 2 implants by Dr. Sajili which are very much intact as i follow her advice regularly. Will recommend Citylife Dental, Yojana Vihar for overall satisfaction under the leadership of Dr. Sajili.

Good luck and Best wishes always

Very satisfied with Dental treatment

My wife Dr Roma Raj and I just walked into Citylife Dental for a complete dental check-up, soon after from the US. We found the clinic’s hygiene and comfort levels at par with any good clinic in the US. The doctor’s mannerisms were so good that we signed up with Citylife for our complete dental treatment plans and since then we have felt very satisfied with the treatment, rates, punctuality and professional approach of their team to our dental problems.
There are no short cuts in this clinic.
May God keep the healing touch of this centre alive for years to come.

One Stop Dental treatment for whole family

I didn’t take any treatment, but accompanied my niece and my father-in-law to Citylife Dental, and I believe that they really liked the treatment and benefited out of it. I would really like to comment about the quality of their resident specialist dentists, I feel that they are empathetic & ethical dentists, which I feel every doctor should be. They give sincere advice on ideal treatment options regardless of commercial considerations.

Very Caring Dentist

Kajla-Bansal

I came across city life dental for dental problems off and on for last 6 years. Though i live in west Delhi and clinic is located in east Delhi via Karkardooma metro station on blue line. From there taking shared e rickshaw up to red light crossing of Ashoka Niketan to reach A 85 Yojana Vihar made my life easy from transportation point of view. I visited this clinic first time in 2013 but the atmosphere, behavior, care, personal and detailed attention looking into minute details of health and history of patient is routine in this clinic. They treated me as if they are treating themselves. Such personal touch care quality sincerity, responsibility with lower cost as well made me my permanent destination to visit city life dental until now in 2019. Dr Sajili Mittal MDS renders multi-focal care with personal touch. She takes total responsibility of dental care if proper timely visits are made. I wish the clinic all the best.

Knowledgeable Dentist and Staff

My family and I have been coming to the clinic for the last one year.  What makes me come here is the cleanliness of the clinic, staff’s behavior, operational knowledge and the hygiene level of the staff.  My whole family is very satisfied here. The most important is the amount of time the doctors spend with the patient listening & explaining the treatment. Their patience level is fantastic.  Keep up the good work!
