Why do we need to take out the sage?

Wisdom teeth extraction

They show up last, but are often among the first to leave. The wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, are the teeth that create a lot of worry for patients. That is why in many cases they have to be removed.

Why? And what is important to know if we are about to pull a sage – you will learn from the following lines.

Specificity of the Sages

Sages usually sprout after puberty – between 18 and 25 years. In some people, however, they do not break through at all. Most often, the reason for this is an insufficiently large jaw. Therefore, the third molars in these patients remain in the bone.

Causes Of Treatment

What kind of care can they create?

In general, the last molar should break through, stand in place alongside the others and complete the formation of the dental arch. However, due to the long delay with which it appears, it is possible that it will “start” incorrectly and shift its arrangement. And this, in turn, may require orthodontic treatment.

Modern dentistry is now able to identify this potential possibility very early and take measures to prevent such a shift. That is why we advise parents to take their children to an orthodontist as soon as the process of replacing milk teeth with permanent teeth begins.

We also recommend that the condition of the last molars be monitored by a specialist during their growth and thereafter, even if there is no pain or other complaint.

In addition to causing crowding and misalignment, wisdom teeth are also susceptible to inflammation – such as pericoronaritis or periodontitis. Some of these inflammations can be painful, cause collection of pus or damage to the gingival tissue. Therefore, if you find that these conditions are increasing, progressing or causing complications, it’s time to pull out.

What are the symptoms of sage problems?

Symptoms in sage related complications can be varied. Therefore, we advise you not to guess, but to visit your dentist at the first sign of concern.

However, some of the most common signs that something is wrong are:

  • Pain. It is most often unilateral, it can be from weak to unbearably strong. Covers the jaw, mandibular joint or neck.
  • Edema. It occurs because of the inflammation of the gums and mucous membranes of the mouth. Most often it is small, but in more serious infection it can cover the entire jaw. In this condition, it is also not excluded to raise your temperature.
  • Disordered arrangement of teeth. This is a longer term symptom that is usually accompanied by discomfort and a feeling of pressure until it becomes visible. We advise you not to wait for this moment.

The dentist will assess whether your condition requires extraction. No-often this decision is reached when it is judged to do more harm than good.

At Medical Dent Dental Clinic we are aware of this and have tried to make it as easy, quick and predictable an experience as possible.

How long does the procedure take?

In the standard case, the extraction of a wisdom tooth usually takes 20-30 minutes, but in some individual patients it can last up to an hour. It is important to know that, although well known, this is not a harmless procedure. It requires skill, especially in the more insidious cases where the tooth is hard to reach or has not yet fully erupted. At Medical Dent Dental Clinic, we have that training and can assure you that we have the ultimate mastery in successfully and seamlessly extracting even the most stubborn wisdom teeth.

Can more than one sage be brought out at a time?

Yeah. But not more than two. They must be on the same side for the patient to feed on the other.

Is it painful to pull out a sage?

No. The procedure is painless as an anaesthetic is placed at the site. Only pressure is felt during the manipulation. СHowever, once the anaesthetic wears off, pain may occur. Its strength varies according to the complexity of the manipulation, but standard pain medications are quite effective in overcoming it.

In rare cases, it is possible that the “inheritance” of molars may be more challenging for the patient and lead to mild edema, a slight increase in temperature, headache. The dentist will know this in advance. He will warn you what to expect and what measures to take to relieve this short-term discomfort and avoid complications after the procedure. Again, he will instruct you in detail about


Proper oral hygiene is key after such a procedure. Brush well with a toothbrush and mouthwash, but avoid the area of surgery. It is recommended that in the first days after it the mouth is not frogged, but only gently rinsed.

A few days after extraction, it is better to consume soft and liquid foods, and when you switch to hard, chew it on the opposite side.

It is important after pulling a sage to observe the following medical recommendations:

  • Do not smoke or drink alcohol;
  • Take drinks at room temperature;
  • Do not exert yourself physically;
  • Don’t suck the wound.
