DON’T LET THE 20-TEETH RUIN YOUR JAW

As a result of changing eating habits, the jaw structure gradually shrinks, it is difficult for 20-year-old teeth to find a place for themselves in the mouth when they come out.

20-year-old teeth, contrary to what is known, can come out at any age, as well as in cases where they are embedded in the jawbone, infections and swelling of the face occur. Turkey Medicals member and clinic Oral and Dental Health Specialist Dt. answers the curious questions about the conditions and treatment processes caused by 20-year-old teeth…

.
WHAT AGE IS THE BEST TIME FOR 20-YEAR-OLD TEETH TO COME OUT? WHY?

The most suitable time is the ages of 18-30. after the second largest molars in front of the 20-year-old teeth appear in the mouth at the age of 11-13, the 20-year-old teeth can come out if there is enough jaw bone distance for the teeth to last.

.
CAN 20-YEAR-OLD TEETH COME OUT IN SOME PEOPLE AT A VERY OLD AGE? WHY?

This condition can be related to the development of the jaw or tooth. In cases of shortness of place behind the tooth, the gum, bone, or neighboring dental barrier may prevent the tooth from coming out. In such cases, the tooth remains embedded, it can come out when any of these obstacles disappear, and it can form at a later age.

Some people have only half of their 20-year-old teeth coming out. The other half may come out in the coming years. What is the reason for this?

A 20-year-old tooth can come out in the coming years when it finds a suitable bone distance location in its jawbone. Sometimes it doesn’t come out at all because they don’t form in the mouth, or only those in the half-jaw can come out.

20-year-old teeth are usually a nuisance for people. we don’t pull as much out of any tooth as we pull out of 20 teeth. why do 20-year-old dental problems occur?

When half of the tooth is dislocated and half is buried in the jawbone, a gum pocket forms between it and the gum surrounding the decayed side. This gum pocket creates a space that is available for the accumulation of food and bacteria that we eat. Infections and swelling of the face can occur when bacteria multiply in this space.

.
WHAT ARE THE PROBLEMS CAUSED BY 20-YEAR-OLD TEETH?

20-year-old teeth are in areas that toothbrushes can hardly reach, because caries formations due to insufficient cleaning of plaque in the tooth, gum infections, intermediate decays in the front teeth can cause problems such as caries.

In which cases should 20-year-old teeth be removed? Why? If it is not withdrawn, what kind of health problems will it cause in the future? If there is a visual about 20 teeth that need to be removed, can you share it with us?

6 Months-1 year over time in a repetitive, in cases of severe tooth decay in the jaws of the jaw and gums, and teeth in the upper jaw, 20 years out, 20 years out of the bottom depending on the situation, the prolongation of teeth in the tooth is extracted to be useful. Cysts and tumors of dental origin can occur in the mouth if they are not removed.

.
WHY SHOULD A POORLY POSITIONED 20-TOOTH BE PULLED OUT, EVEN IF IT DOES NOT CAUSE ANY DISCOMFORT?

In these cases, it can sometimes be located beyond the reach of the toothbrush. Therefore, the accumulation of plaque and the formation of caries are inevitable. At the same time, in general, the teeth of the upper jaw at the age of 20 come out sloping towards the cheek, which can sometimes cause discomfort. In order for the patient to get rid of these complaints, they need to be withdrawn.

.
IS THERE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 20 TOOTH EXTRACTION AND NORMAL TOOTH EXTRACTION?

If the 20-year-old teeth do not have problems such as the position of the jaw bone, posture position, size, and the fact that they are covered with bone or mucous membrane, 20-year-old tooth extraction is no different from normal extraction.

.
IN WHAT CASES IS SURGERY NECESSARY FOR 20-YEAR-OLD TEETH?

In cases where the tooth cannot fully come out or remains embedded in the jaw, surgery is performed.

.
WHAT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AFTER SURGERY IN TURKEY?

Since the shooting site is a wound site, pain may occur during the healing process. In these cases, we recommend the appropriate medications and mouth rinsing waters. Since it may increase the likelihood of bleeding after shooting, patients should avoid hot food and drinks, do not chew with that side for the first 24 hours. It is also worth brushing the shooting area more carefully when brushing our teeth. We need to pay more attention to our oral hygiene during this period.

.
WHAT ARE THE MISTAKES MADE BY OUR PEOPLE ABOUT 20-YEAR-OLD TEETH? WHY?

The belief that 20-year-old teeth are fast-decaying, unnecessary and should be removed as soon as they come out is widespread among the public. Contrary to this belief, if it comes out regularly and does not disrupt the tooth sequence, it must be protected. Sometimes, 20-year-old teeth that have not come out of the mouth but have remained embedded seen in dental films can stay in place without causing any problems in the mouth throughout our lives. The fact that these teeth do not come out is not a problem and they may not need to be pulled out. If the 20-year-old teeth that have come out with a lower and upper one are performing their chewing duties in a healthy way, there is no reason for them to be pulled out.
