Flymedi- Abud Alielah

I found flymedi based on a recommendation by a friend of the family, I was given Abud contact with high recommendation of his service and I was not disappointed at all ! From day one Abud was very helpful and professional. Abud found for me the suitable medical center and the perfect surgeon! He was always available day and night and on weekends as well and very patient with my unlimited questions and inquiries :) and very clear with provided information. After agreeing on the price, place, doctor and dates of the surgery, Abud took care of and planned everything from the day of arrival until the departure, including the hotel, driver, dates of surgery, consultations and more. I am very satisfied, everything was great 👍🏻 I would definitely use his services again I definitely recommend ✅ ✅ ✅

Never expected such a great hospitality…

Never expected such a great hospitality from Flymedi as a foreigner. From the time I landed in Turkey to the time I come back in my country I was treated as a friend. Thank you Yasmin for guiding me all the way. As you promised, I was not placed on the wait list.

Made my trip overseas so much easier!

Yasmin was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! She told me how to get a travel visa and luckily warned me of any travel restrictions that were going on! I had to rebook my trip twice due to covid & restrictions and Yasmin handled everything on the hospitals end. One of the times I had to rebook it was because my layover was in london and Turkey banned all incoming travel from the UK. The airline never notified me so if it wasn't for Yasmin warning me I would have gotten on the plane and been stuck in london! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Yasmin made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

Recommended For Wisdom Tooth Extraction

This procedure is recommended for patients with damaged or infected wisdom teeth due to cavities or trauma. Wisdom tooth extraction is also recommended for patients who experience pain due to the growth of these teeth, even if they are healthy. Wisdom teeth removal is recommended as a treatment for pericoronitis – infection, and inflammation of the gum tissue around a tooth. 

Duration Of Operation

1 to 2 hours

Minimum Stay

1 - 2 days

Overview

A wisdom tooth extraction is a type of dentistry procedure which focuses on the wisdom teeth. This procedure should not be confused with simple tooth extraction, even if the procedures are similar. Some dentists may avoid doing wisdom tooth extractions or surgical tooth extractions since the procedure tends to be a little bit more complicated than a simple tooth extraction.

Most patients will opt for a wisdom tooth extraction due to cavities, root infections or as a final solution for damaged teeth which cannot be treated with other dental restoration techniques such as crowns, tooth fillings or dental bridges. 

It's important to mention that even if in most cases, the wisdom teeth are under the gum line, they can still develop root infections or cavities from nearby teeth. In these cases, the dentist may try to treat the tooth with a filling or extract it, if the patient is suffering from discomfort or pain due to the tooth's growth pattern.

Almost all adults will require a wisdom tooth extraction before they reach the age of 30, even in cases where the wisdom teeth are healthy.

Preparation

Patients will need a set of dental X rays done before the procedure. Patients will also need to cease any intake of anti-inflammatory pills or anticoagulants for a few days before undergoing a wisdom tooth extraction

How It Is Performed

The average wisdom teeth removal operation is performed under partial or in some cases, general anesthesia by a dental surgeon. The procedure begins with the dentist locating the affected tooth and analyzing the surrounding area. After the anesthesia kicks in, an incision will be made in the gum line to expose the wisdom tooth. The tooth will then be carefully removed, in stages, as not to leave any parts of it behind. The bone may also need to be removed to allow access to the wisdom tooth roots. Once the tooth is removed, the dentist will use sutures to close the incision in the gum line.

Recovery

The average wisdom tooth extraction recovery period may last up to a couple of weeks during which the patient will require painkillers to avoid discomfort or pain. Alcohol and smoking are prohibited during this period. Patients need to abstain from eating for a few hours after the procedure.

Risks

Wisdom tooth extraction risks and complications can include:

Side Effects

Side effects can include pain, numbness, and discomfort.

Faq

How long does it take to heal fully?

It can take up to a few weeks for the wound to fully heal. Most people will need recovery in around a week.

Is it painful? For how long?

Most patients will experience pain and discomfort during the first week after the procedure.

Can I eat after a wisdom tooth extraction?

Patients need to avoid solid food for a few days after the procedure.
