what are wisdom teeth

What's the definition of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to develop, usually appearing in our late teens or early twenties. They're located at the back corners of our mouths, on the top and bottom. While everyone's situation can vary, getting wisdom teeth is generally decided by your genes. Some of us may never develop them, while others might develop one, two, three or all four. However, even if you're genetically predisposed to have them, it's not a guarantee as environmental factors can influence as well.

symptoms of impacted wisdom tooth

When is wisdom teeth removal necessary?

Wisdom teeth symptoms include pain, swelling, and difficulty opening your mouth. However, they're not always problematic. If they're causing discomfort, we recommend a consultation. At our Gilbert office, we specialize in gentle wisdom tooth extraction, ensuring your comfort throughout the process. Remember, extraction isn't universally necessary. It's a decision made based on your unique circumstances.

How does wisdom tooth removal work?

We start by numbing the surrounding area, then a small cut is made into your gum tissue to expose the wisdom tooth. Sometimes, it's easier to break the tooth into smaller parts for an easier extraction. But don't worry, we've got a plan if the tooth breaks during this process. So, if that happens, you're still in good hands. With care and precision, we delicately remove each broken piece until your wisdom tooth is completely out.

Aftercare recommendations

After we get those pesky wisdom teeth pulled, it's normal to experience some bleeding. However, don't stress. You're simply gonna keep clean gauze over the surgical area to control it. Then, by rinsing gently with a warm salt-water solution several times daily, we ensure cleanliness. On the other hand, if signs of infection emerge - such as fever or continued swelling - it's necessary to get medical help promptly. Take it slow and you'll recover smoothly.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Soft foods to eat after wisdom teeth removal

After wisdom teeth removal, it’s best to stick with soft, easily consumable foods like steamed carrots and cooked salmon. Definitely, you should avoid spicy foods, as they can irritate your gums and slow the healing process. We also need to avoid hard or chewy foods that can cause discomfort or dislodge healing clots. So remember, opting for nutrient-rich, easy-to-eat items will get you on the fast track to recovery without any extra trouble.

What do dentists charge for removing wisdom teeth in Gilbert?

In Gilbert, the cost of wisdom teeth removal can vary greatly. It's mainly dependent on the level of impaction, whether sedation is involved, and the number of teeth being removed.

For example, if your wisdom teeth are unusually impacted or if complications occur during the procedure, you might be facing extra fees. It’s important to discuss possible costs thoroughly with your dentist beforehand.
