It is always more difficult and risky to attract an infected female. 20-year-old teeth should be followed up in routine checks and pulled out without any problems if necessary

20-year-old teeth are like a bomb with a pin pulled out for a large part of the patients, if not for every patient. It is not clear when it will cause problems. It usually catches you on your happiest days; at your wedding, engagement, job interview, moments when you are going on vacation, exam time, etc.

20-year-old teeth should be carefully monitored under routine dental supervision and pulled out if they need to be pulled out without creating a problem. Otherwise, when it creates problems, usually this problem is accompanied by infection. It is not possible to shoot at this time.

Such patients are taken to the dental office after the administration of antibiotics and painkillers.


20-year-old tooth extraction has become easier today with the use of laser and ultrasonic devices. Especially the roots of 20-year-old teeth should be evaluated well before shooting. For this, two- and three-dimensional tomographic imaging systems are used.

The connections of buried 20-year-old teeth with the nerve of the lower jaw and their connection with the sinus cavity in the upper jaw are taken into account.

Oral care of patients after tooth extraction should be at the highest level.

Brushing your teeth and mouthwash are recommended for this. Smoking after the operation is certainly very harmful. patients who have had an infection at the age of 20 and have reduced the infection by using antibiotics avoid tooth extraction because it has ‘healed anyway’.

After a certain time, these infections recur and patients suppress this infection by using antibiotics again.
This chain continues two to three times. At the end of it, the cyst inside the jaw bone grows, causing serious bone loss and the growth of cysts and infections.

It should be remembered that 20-year-old teeth that have created problems and then somehow suppressed the problem are like a bomb with a pin pulled out, and it is absolutely unclear when, where, how it will catch you.

Delayed 20-year-old dental problems lead to more serious problems and difficult operation.


20-year-old teeth are the third largest molars at the very end of both sides of the jaw.

Because they are the last teeth to come out of the mouth and usually come out between the ages of 17 and 25, they are also called 20 yo teeth.

Because 20-year-old teeth are the last permanent teeth to come out, there may not be enough space in your mouth for them. This can lead to 20-year-old teeth being buried under the gum tissue or bone or next to another tooth. If the teeth are buried, swelling appears. The reason why buried 20-year-old teeth are a problem is that there is no genetic need for this tooth.

As our jaws get smaller, 20-year-old teeth are forced to find a place for themselves and therefore cannot come out like other teeth. 20-year-old teeth that can’t find a place for themselves put pressure by pushing the tooth in front, which causes perplexity. In addition, due to the fact that they are far behind and the gum around them is not of normal anatomical structure, it can easily become inflamed. If the teeth are embedded in the bone at the age of 20, your dentist, oral and maxillofacial surgeon will make an incision in the gums and remove the tooth or teeth part by part to minimize the amount of bone to be removed. After the procedure, swelling and pain may appear, this is normal and passes within a few days. If this period becomes longer, pain, swelling increases, and bleeding appears, you should call your dentist.


20-year-old teeth that are partially dislocated or crooked can also lead to pain, perplexity, or illness. Because they cannot fully come out, it becomes inflamed due to the escape of food residues and bacterial growth between the gum dec on them. As a result of inflammation of the gums around the tooth; pain, swelling, abscess are formed. They create a favorable environment for caries. In this case, they must necessarily be removed surgically. I recommend that you be examined between the ages of 16 and 19 for 20-year-old teeth because the roots of 20-year-old teeth that were removed before the age of 20 will be less developed and decutations performed at this age may cause fewer complications.


20-year-old teeth that have completely come out usually do not cause problems, but they are difficult to brush because they are far behind. For this reason, it is recommended to withdraw it as a preventive measure in patients whose oral care is not very good.

Tooth extraction is a fairly routine procedure.

Your dentist may recommend that you be put to sleep by sedation or that the area in your mouth be anesthetized with a drug through local anesthesia.

Depending on the location, shape and size of the 20-tooth tooth, the degree of difficulty of the procedure to be performed varies. After a simple shot, there may be a slight swelling, pain and bleeding.

Some complex shots that require more specific operations can also be applied. The precautions that your dentist will take and the recommendations that he will give will minimize the side effects.


A blood clot forms in the cavity formed after tooth extraction, and this clot acts as a concealer, helping to heal the area where the shot was taken. If this blood clot beats or breaks down within five days of tooth extraction, the bone and nerves of the tooth will come out. This, in turn, leads to the fact that the wound site does not heal. This condition occurs only in 2-5 percent of people who have had a tooth removed at the age of 20. The tooth extraction site that does not heal causes quite a lot of pain. To relieve the pain, your dentist will first rinse the wound site, clean the remaining residues if any, and make a dressing with a medicine to protect the area and relieve the pain. He will recommend antibiotics to prevent infection and painkillers to relieve pain. With careful care and rest, the wound site will heal in 7-10 days.


Pain (spontaneously or when pressing on it),

Swelling (in the mouth or on the face),


Swelling of the lymph nodes under the chin,

Difficulty swallowing,

The inability to close the mouth or bite the gum on a 20-year-old tooth when it closes, there is pressure.


The wound site should definitely not be tampered with.

During the first 24 hours, the tooth should not be chewed with the pulled side.

Smoking should definitely not be smoked for the first 24 hours, as it increases bleeding and prolongs the healing process.

The patient should not spit out, so as not to dislodge the blood clot.

Bleeding should be checked and, if the suture has not been removed, a tampon should be made with sterile gauze.

After the operation, circulation should be slowed down by applying a cold tampon to the area and swelling of the face should be prevented.


It can cause a cross by pressing on the front tooth.

It can cause caries on the front tooth.

Since it creates a favorable environment for inflammation, it can cause pain and swelling from time to time.

The existing inflammation can enter the blood at a weak moment in the body, settle in organs such as the heart, kidneys, brain, joints, and cause life-threatening damage.
