What exactly are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, or third molars as we often call them, are the last set of teeth that usually emerge in our late teens or early twenties. However, some people may never develop wisdom teeth. This is known as congenitally missing teeth, and it's more common than you'd think. In fact, about 45% of a diverse sample of 4,100 people didn't have at least one of their wisdom teeth. These figures aren't concrete, but they're a good reference, wouldn't you agree?
Do I need to have my wisdom teeth removed?
Experiencing gum swelling or discomfort in the back of your mouth? You might be dealing with wisdom teeth coming in. Other symptoms include headaches, jaw pain, difficulty opening your mouth, and foul breath. While not always necessary, sometimes we determine extraction is best to avoid future problems. In Carmichael, we provide state-of-the-art wisdom tooth removal, offering you comfort and reassurance throughout the procedure.
How are wisdom teeth removed?
In wisdom tooth surgery, we make a small incision in your gum. Next, we break up the tooth into tiny parts and remove them. However, it's not all sunshine and daisies. You could face potential risks like dry socket or infection. Even nerve damage, which can leave you feeling numb, is possible. It's similar to skateboarding, exhilarating but you might take a spill or two.
Wisdom tooth healing
After wisdom teeth removal, you might feel a bit groggy from anesthesia, but don't worry, this effect wears off quickly. It's normal to experience mild discomfort, swelling, and even bruising for a few days. We usually prescribe painkillers to manage this. You'll have a follow-up appointment to monitor your healing process. In the meantime, avoid strenuous activities, gently rinse your mouth with warm salt water, and it's vital you don't overdo brushing or flossing. Remember, every healing journey is unique, so if you're concerned, contact us immediately.
Best foods to eat after wisdom tooth removal
We need to focus on soft foods. Think fruit salad, or pasta with alfredo sauce. Both are easy to chew, and they're delicious. You also need supplements - vitamins A, C, E, and minerals like zinc. They aid healing, you'll find them in green veggies, citrus fruits, nuts, or beans. Stay hydrated too, crucial for the healing process.
How much should I expect to pay?
Dealing with an impacted tooth, especially a wisdom tooth, can feel like a mountain of unknowns - let's help clear the fog. The cost typically encompasses the tooth removal, anesthesia, and any necessary x-rays. Moreover, post-operative care and follow-up appointments are typically part of the package, keeping you worry-free. It's like buying a concert ticket, where the encore and after-show meet-and-greet are included.
