智慧齒一定要拔嗎?

智慧齒一定要拔嗎?
智慧齒,專業角度來講就是人們的第三隻臼齒,生長在最遠端的牙齒,也是最後一顆生長出來的牙齒,通常在17﹣ 25 歲的年齡間生長出來。 阻生智慧齒產生的問題: - 蛀牙及牙周病 :阻生智慧齒經常僅生長出一小部份,與第二隻臼齒產生一個三角形的空間,這個空間非常難清潔,經常有嵌塞食物的困擾,導致蛀牙或牙周病。 - 冠周炎:即牙冠周圍組織發炎,其原因亦是由於智慧齒難以清潔,加上上頜牙齒咬到智齒周圍的牙肉組織導致牙肉發炎。冠周炎如果嚴重可能會將感染帶到其他軟組織,導致面部腫脹。 什麼時候需要拔除智慧齒? - 如智慧齒完全埋在牙槽骨,或者智慧齒生長位置正常,建議定期進行口腔檢查,按情況而定。 - 如曾患冠周炎或者因智慧齒而導致面部腫脹感染,建議儘快拔除以絕後患。 - 如智慧齒有蛀牙或者因智慧齒而導致第二臼齒蛀牙,也需要拔除。 手術風險: 通常拔除阻生智慧齒,特別是下頜智慧齒,需要涉及小手術。小手術的風險包括傷口感染,術後腫痛,以及傷及下齒槽神經線與舌側神經線。拔除智慧齒之前,需與牙科醫生溝通,衡量拔除智慧齒的利弊,再慎重做決定。
