what are wisdom teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, we all have them. They’re our third set of molars that usually show up in our late teens or early twenties. Now, you may wonder why we have them. Well, our ancestors needed these extra molars to help grind down tough, rough foods like nuts, roots, and meats. However, as our diets have evolved to include softer foods and as our dental care has improved, we just don't need these extra teeth anymore.

How's a wisdom tooth extracted?

In the removal of wisdom teeth, we make a small incision in your gum to expose the tooth and surrounding bone. By gently removing small amounts of bone, we're able to free the tooth for extraction. This bone is not permanently affected as it regenerates over time. While the procedure calls for precision and experience, rest assured, it's accomplished with your comfort and safety as top priority.

Wisdom teeth removal aftercare

After wisdom teeth surgery at home, you'll begin the recovery journey. Initially, you may experience swelling and discomfort; it's completely normal. We apply ice packs to minimize swelling. Over time, this discomfort subsides and we transition into the second recovery phase; gentle mouth movements regain normal functionality. However, remember to avoid disturbing the surgical area. Moreover, progressing towards total recovery, you'll notice gradual healing of incisions. You're bravely navigating this necessary process.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Safe foods to eat post-extraction

We recommend soft, easy-to-swallow foods post-wisdom teeth removal. Stick to applesauce, mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, or soups. One reason it's a good idea is to avoid irritating the healing site. However, since variety is important in diet, you can also consume ripe plums and pudding made with coconut milk. They're not only nutritious but gentle on your mouth too.

Yes, there can be long-term effects of not removing wisdom teeth. These include crowding of other teeth, infection, cysts or tumors, gum inflammation, and difficulty in cleaning the area properly. It is important to consult with a dental professional to evaluate the need for wisdom teeth removal.

How can I prepare for my wisdom teeth removal surgery?

How long should I avoid alcoholic beverages after wisdom teeth removal?

One side may appear more swollen after wisdom teeth removal due to factors like inflammation, infection, or varying healing processes. This can be a normal occurrence and should gradually improve with time.
