Contraindications for Wisdom Teeth Removal

It is common for people to remove the troublesome wisdom teeth. However, there are factors to consider before the extraction as it might, in some cases, be dangerous for the patients.

Menstrual women. In principle, women should avoid tooth extraction during menstruation, because compensatory bleeding may occur in the alveolar during menstruation. But pulling out a loose tooth during menstruation has little effect on the patient. Some “deep-rooted” teeth, such as impacted teeth, should be removed after menstruation. According to data, it is most suitable for women to extract their teeth around the 10th day of the menstrual cycle. At this time, the wounds heal faster and bacterial infections are less likely to occur.

Women during pregnancy. Some people think that tooth extraction is not allowed during pregnancy because it may cause miscarriage. However, a large number of clinical practices have shown that tooth extraction is safer in 3-7 months of pregnancy and has no adverse effects on pregnancy.

Patients with coagulation dysfunction. Patients with coagulation dysfunction may experience excessive postoperative bleeding after tooth extraction, and need to be treated under the guidance of a doctor.

Patients with hypertension. Tooth extraction easily stimulates blood pressure indirectly. Therefore, for people with high blood pressure, it is easy to cause symptoms such as bleeding and rupture of blood vessels . It is recommended that patients with high blood pressure must check their blood pressure regularly before tooth extraction. Only when the blood pressure is within the normal range can they be considered for the procedure.

Patients with hyperglycemia. For people with high blood sugar and poor control, the probability of suffering from periodontal disease is significantly higher than that of ordinary people. Patients often have low immunity and are prone to co-infection, and infections are generally more serious and hard to control.

Patients with hyperthyroidism. Patients with hyperthyroidism are prone to thyroid crisis such as high fever, coma, and heart failure during tooth extraction. Therefore, it is necessary to follow the doctor’s advice and carefully extract the tooth.

Despite that the extraction of wisdom teeth may be for the purpose of better health, there are certainly reasons to be cautious before processing. and patients should always follow doctors’ advices to ensure personal safety.
