Cysts are “pockets of bacteria” that have developed at the tips of infected tooth roots.
They can cause the spread of bacteria throughout the body (septicaemia) or at the heart valves (infectious endocarditis) but can also be grafted onto most organs, bones and joints.
It is therefore essential to eliminate dental cysts by removing the responsible tooth or sometimes just the cyst by keeping the tooth.
This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia but sometimes requires general anesthesia.
Remove included tooths
Wisdom teeth (or 3rd molar teeth) are teeth that develop from germs from adolescence to adulthood (they come out, if everything is normal, around the age of 17-18 years).
The changing dietary habits (soft nutrition) of the human race and orthodontic treatments mean that wisdom teeth no longer have the place to come out and push other teeth, causing major pain, abscesses and displacements of other teeth.
Therefore, it is generally recommended to have them removed before they create all these inconveniences.
The extraction of the included wisdom teeth is usually performed in the operating room of the Tonkin Clinic under neurolep-analgesia (NLA).
The products used are the same as for a general anaesthesia, with lower doses, thus reducing the length of hospitalization (1/2 day) and obtaining a faster recovery of all its faculties.In some cases when the teeth are almost out, extraction can be done under local anesthesia without hospitalization.
After the operation, you can resume a school or professional activity the next day.
Among the possible, but not mandatory, consequences, your cheeks may swell for a few days, and the pain may be present for a week, but analgesics (pain medication) work effectively.
BONE AND GUM LOSS AND GINGIVAL GRAFT
If your gums are retracted, abruptly, or over time, there are several causes: the proliferation of bacteria on the gums, heredity, bad position of teeth and jaws, tobacco,….
The consequences are, in a first stage, sensitivities to the cold, an unattractive smile, food compaction and then mobility until the loss of the tooth (s).
The treatments proposed (medical periodontology) aim to eliminate harmful bacteria, present under the gums, and eventually to reconstruct bone loss, or gums, through grafts.
