My experience was great!

I was worried that I would have my surgery in a foreign country alone, but Luna Clinic made me feel right at home. They attended to my every need right away, and I didn’t feel alone even for one second. Thanks for everything. My experience was great!

Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

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.
