Wisdom Teeth Removal at Ryu Clinic

Wisdom teeth removal at Toranomon Hills Dental Medical Ryu Clinic in begins with an explanation of the treatment, the condition of the teeth, and the cost. Since wisdom teeth are located further back than normal teeth and often need to be extracted, it is necessary to provide patients with the correct knowledge. This includes the wisdom tooth removal process, precautions, risks and side effects, aftercare and prevention methods. The dentist’s medical information is provided in a careful and easy-to-understand manner so that patients can feel comfortable with the treatment.


Check the condition of the wisdom teeth

Before wisdom teeth removal, a medical examination is performed. A detailed examination and x-rays are taken by the dentist to confirm the position of the wisdom teeth and the shape of the roots. This examination will determine whether or not removal is necessary.


Anesthesia explanation

The type of anesthesia and its effects will be explained. Wisdom teeth removal is usually performed under general or local anesthesia. If general anesthesia is chosen, it may be necessary to fast before surgery. In the case of local anesthesia, the area around the gums is numbed to reduce pain.



Finally, the surgical procedure will be explained. First, an incision is made in the gum to expose the wisdom teeth. Then the wisdom teeth are slowly removed using special instruments. After the surgery, the gums are stitched and a bandage or gauze is applied to stop bleeding. The removal usually takes 15 to 30 minutes.

Precautions for Wisdom Teeth Removal

There may be pain and swelling after a wisdom tooth removal. Pain after removal usually requires pain medication due to swelling and soreness at the removal site. Swelling after tooth removal can also be reduced by using ice or cold packs.

Post-removal care includes gentle cleansing with medicated soap to keep the wound clean and antibiotics. If symptoms worsen after a tooth removal, contact your dentist immediately. Seek professional advice and you will be instructed on the appropriate course of action and prescription medications to use.


Risks and Side Effects of Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom tooth removal is a common dental procedure, but there are several risks and side effects to be aware of. The first risk associated with tooth removal is damage to nerves and blood vessels. Wisdom teeth have a more specific shape than other teeth and are often located in close proximity to surrounding nerves and blood vessels, so there is a possibility that these may be damaged during removal. Therefore, it is important to get detailed information from a dentist’s examination and x-rays.

In addition, the face and cheek may swell after tooth removal. This is due to damage to the surrounding tissues during tooth removal and usually resolves spontaneously within a few days to a week, but in some cases the inflammation can become chronic. Therefore, it is important to monitor and properly care for the area after removal.


There is also a risk of infection after tooth removal. Because of the many bacteria present in the mouth, the removal site can become infected. Measures to prevent infection include proper hygiene after tooth removal, the use of antibiotics, and regular dental checkups.
Because of the above risks and side effects, it is important to follow your dentist’s instructions and implement appropriate aftercare and prevention methods.

Aftercare and Prevention of Wisdom Teeth Removal

After wisdom tooth removal, it is important to take good aftercare measures. First, the removal area may bleed, so you must bite down on gauze to stop the bleeding. Also, because of the residual anesthesia, pain may occur, and painkillers should be taken if there is pain. Swelling after tooth removal can be reduced by applying ice.

In addition, to maintain hygiene in the removal area, the mouth should be rinsed lightly and the teeth should be brushed without excessive force, as the removal area is a wound. To prevent wisdom tooth removal, it is important to have regular dental checkups. A dentist can assess the condition of your wisdom teeth and address the problem as early as possible. Taking good dental care and preventing tooth decay and gum disease are also important measures to prevent wisdom tooth removal.
