This one, you need to go back to the dentist/oral surgeon who did the extractions. To rely on this board however helpful, doesn't sound like the best idea to me for this situation. Good luck hope you are pain free by now, or at least subsiding.
Yes, extractions can cause TMJ if they are taken from the lower jaw.
does blue cross blue shield cover wisdom teeth extractions in ma
Not if anathesia is used.
Yes!! It is
No. Unless you have a tongue piercing.
Don't do it. At least way 2-3 days or else your gums where your teeth were will be super painful.
they were just pulling your teeth out but you couldn't feel it because you were asleep or either calmly relaxed
The CPT code for extractions is 41899
till it stop hurting
Yes , some more than others, and if it beleeds a lot then change your dentist.
Yes, they are extremely painful. Some teeth might be more painful than others, it all depends on the tooth.
No! DO NOT USE A STRAW AFTER WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTIONS!!!! I just got mine out and everyone told me about this terrible thing you get where you used to have teeth and its more painful than child birth and there isn't anything you can do to stop the pain. Its caused from using a straw after extractions. my dentist told me and about 4 other people. so don't use it.
It depends on who you ask. The literature on dry sockets after wisdom teeth extractions reports a range from 5-20% dry socket occurence. Most experienced oral surgeons will see fewer than 10% dry socket rate after wisdom teeth extractions. The biggest determining factor to risk is experience of the surgeon. Which means that newbies will have more dry sockets than seasoned surgeons.
Not necessarily. Teeth tend to become more crowed as we age, especially the lower front teeth. This happens in some people regardless of whether they have wisdom teeth or not. Therefore, removing the wisdom teeth, solely for the purpose of hoping to get naturally straighter teeth, won't work.
it means many teeth may have severe cavities
No. However, not having them removed can. Wisdom teeth are teeth that are not needed. Our mouths were designed to have them but not need them. If they come in and are not straight they are called "impacted". When they become impacted they can cause danger to the roots of other teeth. This is when they need to be removed.
it is now continuedTO BE CONTINUEDrabbits have up to 28 teeth
I had all my upper teeth extracted and a full plate made, and 6 of my bottom teeth with a partial plate mad and spent 2800 after my insurance. I was also put under anesthesia for the extractions
Yes and no. Adults generally have 28 permanent teeth excluding the wisdom teeth. Most adults will not develop all 4 wisdom teeth, which would bring the count to 32, had they. However, the amount of teeth can change during adulthood depending on tooth extractions, wisdom teeth, or malformed teeth.
Yes, I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed 2 weeks ago while wearing braces.
I just got all my teeth pulled about 2 weeks ago and I still can't eat anything but soft foods. My dentist said that it takes 2-4 weeks depending on if the extractions are simple or complex. Most of my gums are pretty much healed besides where I had complex extractions done.
Depends on the situation. A routine scale and polish with no extractions is usually around 600$ With extractions comes increased cost. Also it depends on what teeth were extracted, example rotted incisors come out easier than diseased molars. the harder it is to take out the more expensive it is, Estimates usually go from 600-1500
Braces on baby teeth can be used to make room for incoming teeth if there isn't enough room naturally. Sometimes a kid will not have certain baby teeth or will lose them earlier than normal and the space will close, and braces or extractions may be necessary to make room for the permanent teeth
The D stands for a "decayed tooth". Usually you will seeDMF-which is calculated to determine an individual's overall caries (cavities) rate in their mouth. As for using this to determine extractions or with extractions, I can only surmise that they are using this calculation for insurance purposes to explain the need for extractions beyond pain.DMFT and DMFS describe the amount - the prevalence - of dental caries in an individual. DMFT and DMFS are means to numerically express the caries prevalence and are obtained by calculating the number ofDecayed (D)Missing (M)Filled (F)teeth (T) or surfaces (S).
