Jaw Joint Disorders
Jaw joint disorders occur as a result of deformities in the structures connecting the lower and upper jaws. There are many factors that cause joint discomfort. A detailed examination is made by listening to the patient’s story and taking the necessary x-rays.
In the treatment of joint disease, the factors should be identified and treated first.
Symptoms of joint disorders;
Clicking sound in joints
Ear pain and feeling of pressure in the ear
Decreased mouth opening, locked chin
Headache at the temples
Pain in the neck and shoulder area
Abrasions on the tooth surface
Sensitivity in teeth
Difficulty and pain in opening the jaw in the morning
Angular appearance in the lower jaw arch that occurs on the face due to the growth in the chewing muscles.
Factors causing joint discomfort;
Teeth grinding and clenching (bruxism)
Continuous one-sided chewing
Blows to the chin area
Incorrectly made prostheses that negatively affect the relationship of the lower and upper jaws with each other
Dental and maxillofacial disorders
Complicated dental treatments where the mouth remains open for a long time
Habits such as nail biting.
Treatment of joint ailments;
A detailed examination of the teeth, the closing relationship between the teeth, chewing muscles and joint is performed. Imaging methods can be used when necessary. It may not always be possible to fully treat joint damage. The aim of the treatment is to regain the lost functions of the patient and to increase the quality of daily life. For this purpose, methods such as joint splints, pain relievers and muscle relaxants, some exercises and botox are used.
In today’s dentistry, our main goal is to protect and keep the teeth in the mouth. However, in some cases, teeth may need to be extracted. Tooth extraction can be a simple extraction or a complicated surgical extraction depending on the condition of the tooth to be extracted. As a result of the examination and x-rays taken, the patient is informed about how the shooting will take place. Tooth extractions performed under local anesthesia are simple surgical interventions. Even a broken tooth or an impacted tooth that needs to be surgically removed can be easily removed with good planning.
Things to consider after tooth extraction;
Tooth extraction; It is the process of removing teeth and tooth roots from the jawbone with minimum trauma. There are some issues that need to be considered for the healthy healing of the cavity called the extraction socket formed after tooth extraction. The pooling and coagulation of blood in the extraction socket formed after tooth extraction is the most basic condition for the healing of the extraction site. After extraction, a sterile tampon is placed in the area. It is important to keep this tampon in place for 20 minutes. Afterwards, do not remove the blood clot formed in the socket from the socket. In other words, do not suck the extraction wound and spit it out or gargle to remove the clot. It is normal for bleeding in the form of leakage at the extraction site to continue for 24 hours, but if you have a bleeding that does not stop very heavily, consult your doctor. If you have had a surgical tooth extraction, it will be useful to apply ice to your face for 24 hours from the outside, apply ice for 10 minutes and rest for 5 minutes. Apply by wrapping it in a cloth or napkin so that the ice does not come into direct contact with your skin. If you have medications recommended by your doctor, use them regularly. After the drowsiness has passed, you can start eating and drinking other than very hard and hot foods. It is appropriate to brush your teeth after 24 hours. Smoking will negatively affect recovery. Do not smoke for 24 hours.
20 Years Teeth
Wisdom teeth are the third molars. It is expected to last between the ages of 17-27. In cases where there is not enough space in the jaw bones or in cases where the 20-year-old tooth is in a horizontal position, the eruption process cannot take place and may cause some problems for the patient.
Is extraction of wisdom teeth necessary?
Well-positioned and properly erupted wisdom teeth do not need to be extracted.
In which cases should wisdom teeth be extracted?
When wisdom teeth cannot find enough space in the jawbone, they cause various problems in the mouth. They can be fully embedded (involved in both the gingiva and the jawbone), or they can be semi-buried just under the gingiva.
If the fully impacted wisdom teeth are not in a position to damage the adjacent tooth and do not cause a complaint in the patient, they can be left in the mouth by annual follow-up with the help of x-rays.
In case of semi-buried, they cause infections in the gums and bad breath. If these infections recur frequently and it is not possible for the tooth to erupt into the mouth, the wisdom tooth should be extracted.
A 20-year-old tooth standing in a diagonal position may not be able to enter the mouth properly and may damage the tooth in front of it. If the tooth is damaging the adjacent tooth while trying to erupt, extraction should be considered.
Since wisdom teeth are located at the back, they are difficult to clean and maintain. For this reason, it may rot early and cause pain. This may require extraction of the 20-year-old tooth.
It may form a cyst around the impacted wisdom teeth. In this case, the tooth must be extracted and the cyst removed.
Will there be pain after 20 years tooth extraction?
If you pay attention to your doctor’s recommendations after a well-done surgical extraction, you will not experience much pain. The resulting pain can be controlled with simple painkillers.
Will my face swell after 20 years old tooth extraction?
This situation may vary depending on the difficulty level of the shooting and the nature of the person. It will be useful to apply ice to the cheek area for 24 hours to prevent swelling.
What should I pay attention to after the operation?
Spitting, gargling, and tooth brushing should not be done for the first 24 hours after extraction. It is useful to apply ice compresses to your face for 24 hours. (We should wrap the ice pack in a cloth and rest it for 5 minutes every 10 minutes and apply it throughout the day.) After shooting, hot foods and hard foods should be avoided for 2 days. Painkillers and antibiotics should be used regularly if your doctor recommends it. You should not smoke for the first 48 hours as it will impair the healing process.
While wisdom teeth often remain impacted, sometimes canine teeth, incisors and premolars can be impacted for various reasons. With the help of orthodontic treatments, impacted teeth can be brought into the mouth in a healthy way. In some cases, impacted teeth may need to be surgically removed, and sometimes if there is an impacted tooth that does not cause any problems, it can be left in place, provided that it is followed up regularly.
The majority of jaw cysts are odontogenic (tooth origin) cysts. They can be noticed by the patient by causing pain or swelling, or they can be seen incidentally on radiographs taken by the physician for control purposes without causing any discomfort. Dental cysts are usually benign and slow growing formations. It must be taken when noticed. If not taken on time, they can reach large sizes and cause weakening of the jawbone.
