Board Certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon Gives New Cause to Monitor Wisdom Teeth

Many people in their early to late teens and older will need to have their wisdom teeth removed to avoid jaw pain and avert oral hygiene issues that can lead to serious health consequences

AMARILLO, Texas, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- It is common to see patients seeking wisdom teeth removal when they are older and experiencing discomfort, however general dentists usually recommend treatment for wisdom teeth to their patients when they are fairly young so that they can avoid crowding and maintain proper oral hygiene. Many people, especially young adults, who have not maintained regular visits with their general dentists are unaware that they have partially erupted or impacted wisdom teeth—until they feel pain. What makes this issue even more compelling are the recent studies that now show how poor oral hygiene can lead to serious health risks such as heart disease, strokes, diabetes and even memory loss.

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause crowding between the rest of the teeth in the mouth, which can make it difficult to clean the second molars, located right in front the wisdom teeth. For an animated example of this problem please click here. This can cause damage to the second molars and can also create a domino effect in the rest of the teeth of the mouth as they become more crowded. When people are unable to properly clean their teeth it can lead to periodontal disease, which can cause gum erosion, infection, and ultimately, tooth loss.

While wisdom teeth extraction is not a simple procedure, it is routine for oral and maxillofacial surgeons. "I enjoy performing wisdom teeth extractions and, in fact, it is a large part of my practice. It is always nice to see patients under preventative circumstances rather than through the facial trauma cases in the emergency room or extractions of teeth that cause pain," says Bryan Bailey, a Board Certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

Wisdom tooth removal begins by making incisions into the gum tissue in the rear of the jaw to expose the wisdom tooth. Once the tooth is extracted, the gum tissue is stitched back together. Recovery is fairly rapid. After surgery, it is recommend that the patient use ice packs to minimize swelling, limit their physical activity and eat soft food.

"One thing that is critical is an understanding of the mandibular nerve and how it can be affected by surgery.  Avoiding nerve damage is something that oral surgeons have been specifically and extensively trained on," said Dr. Bailey.

Anesthesia preferences vary by patient, but can range from a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth to general anesthesia, in which the patient is completely asleep. "Making patients pain free during the procedure is the easiest part of the process. The most important part however, is ensuring the safety of the patient. I always have my nurse present and maintain a well-trained staff proficient in emergency care," says Dr. Bailey.

"The health and wellbeing of every citizen in Amarillo, Texas and the surrounding Panhandle Region is a top concern of mine. It is important to understand that damage due to ignoring and not properly treating wisdom teeth early in life can have an impact that will be felt many years in the future ... and is completely preventable," says Dr. Bailey.

Dr. Bailey, a former faculty member in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Missouri Schools of Medicine and Dentistry, opened his private oral surgery practice in Amarillo, TX seven years ago. He firmly believes that the procedure of wisdom tooth removal is best handled by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon because of the extensive, special training these doctors have received.

The website of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons indicates that "Oral & Maxillofacial surgeons are the only recognized dental specialists who, after completing dental school, are surgically trained in an American Dental Association-accredited hospital-based residency program for a minimum of four years. They train alongside medical residents in internal medicine, general surgery and anesthesiology, and also spend time in otolaryngology, plastic surgery, emergency medicine and other specialty areas. Their training focuses almost exclusively on the hard (i.e., bone) and soft (i.e., skin, muscle) tissue of the face, mouth, and jaws. Their knowledge and surgical expertise uniquely qualify them to diagnose and treat the functional and esthetic conditions in this anatomical area."
