Wisdom teeth are usually impacted due to their position in the jawbone and their covering with gums or bones.
In cases where a part of the tooth is covered with gums often infection with consequent facial swelling and decrease in jaw opening occur. As a result of repeated infections, the bone around the wisdom teeth begins to melt and inflamed tissue occurs instead.
In addition, due to its position in the jawbone, it may sometimes put pressure on the molars in front of it. In this case, pain and perplexity occur in the front teeth.
The extraction of wisdom teeth is usually performed surgically and swelling and pain may be seen in this area after extraction. This situation occurs in the presence of bone tissue around the wisdom teeth. When hard tissue laser (Er: YAG) is used instead of traditional methods to remove the bone around the tooth, swelling and pain are reduced by 80 percent and tissue healing is accelerated.
