What's the definition of wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that we typically get in our late teens or early twenties. However, some don't get these teeth at all. The eruption timeline can vary greatly and it's possible you won't experience this until after the age of 21. While wisdom teeth play a role in your oral health, they've been largely rendered unnecessary in modern times. So, if you're curious about yours, don't hesitate to check it with a health professional.
When is wisdom teeth removal necessary?
Experiencing discomfort, pain, or swelling in the back of your mouth? You might be noticing inflamed gums, a potential symptom of wisdom teeth coming in. When those teeth become impacted or grow at an awkward angle, it's important we consider removing them. For safe, trusted oral surgery for wisdom teeth in Tucson, you're in good hands.
How's a wisdom tooth extracted?
In a wisdom teeth removal surgery, we make an incision in your gum to expose the tooth and bone. With our precision, we remove any bone blocking access to the tooth root and then divide the tooth into sections if it's easier to remove in pieces. Intricate stitches or sutures are used to close the wound and promote healing. However, they aren't always necessary. It's an artful process, coupled with deep understanding of your oral structure, ensuring the surgery's smooth sailing.
Wisdom tooth aftercare
After wisdom teeth removal, we focus on personalized follow-up to ensure you're healing well. However, it's normal if you feel pain or swelling: your body's simply adjusting. Moreover, while we recommend rest, activities like reading or watching TV can distract from the discomfort. You might notice slight bleeding; don't worry, we've got it covered. On the other hand, if it persists or you struggle with intense pain, immediately call us. Remember, you're never alone in this recovery process.
Soft foods to eat after wisdom teeth removal
We've got the perfect solution for those hunger pangs. Cream of celery soup has a velvety texture that's gentle on your mouth and packs a flavorful punch. Paired with mild bread sauce, it's a satisfying meal. Also, sipping on nutritious smoothies and slurping down jellies will satiate your appetite. Stay hydrated with water; however, avoid using straws. Remember, you're feeding your recovery. Enjoy these wonderful, soft foods while you heal.
How much should I expect to pay?
We know it's a bit intimidating when you need wisdom teeth removal in Tucson, especially when it's an impacted extraction. But rest assured, the cost will vary based on the type of anesthesia you choose. With local anesthesia, it's a more economical choice. On the other hand, general anesthesia, while offering deeper sedation, will carry a higher price. Yet, we'll support you in understanding all your options. We're here to help you through it all.
