What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are typically the last to emerge in our mouths. Normally, we have four: one in each corner of our mouth. They usually appear in our late teens or early twenties. However, due to evolution and our diet changes, our jaws have become smaller. As a result, frequently, there's just not enough room for them. So, when they do make their grand entrance, they can create oral health issues. On the other hand, sometimes, you're lucky and don't have any at all.
Is extraction necessary for wisdom teeth?
Feeling achy? You might have wisdom teeth coming in, with symptoms including tender gums, jaw pain, and difficulty chewing. However, while some discomfort is normal, persistent pain could suggest complications like gum disease. Not all wisdom teeth require removal. We have specialized wisdom teeth surgery providers in Fresno who can determine if extraction is your best course of action. Isn't it time you smiled comfortably again?
What's the process for taking out wisdom teeth?
When we venture into extracting wisdom teeth, it's not merely a yank and pull situation. We have to cut into the soft tissue surrounding the tooth to expose it. Sometimes, a small amount of bone covering the tooth also needs to be removed. However, this procedure doesn't harm the overall health of your surrounding bone, but actually assists in removing the tooth more efficiently. Remember, you're not losing a bone, you're gaining relief.
Post wisdom teeth surgery, your mouth will feel sore and swollen. We generally recommend using ice on your cheeks and taking ibuprofen to reduce inflammation. You might see a bit of bruising, this is normal and should subside after a few days. Moreover, it's very important to avoid physical activities for at least a week to prevent bleeding and speed up recovery. And remember, always follow the provided aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth healing process.
Post-extraction meal ideas
Post wisdom teeth removal, we'll opt for soft foods like sautéed mushrooms and steamed asparagus. The idea is to eat easy-to-chew food that won't disrupt healing or contribute to dry socket. Wait for about a week before attempting to add solid foods back into your diet. Now, stay hydrated, but avoid hot drinks and straws as they can dislodge the clot.
Wisdom tooth removal costs in Fresno
In Fresno, removing wisdom teeth can be quite variable in cost depending on specific circumstances and coverage. We've noticed that when you have all four wisdom teeth removed at once, it's often more cost-effective than scheduling separate sessions. These cost differences are often due to anesthesia and facility fees. We understand the struggle of balancing finances and healthcare—however, remember, your health is the priority. Feel free to discuss your concerns with us; we're here to help.
Urgent wisdom tooth extraction in Fresno
While wisdom tooth pain isn't viewed as an immediate emergency, it's genuinely uncomfortable, leaving you desperate for some instant relief.

For persistent pain, however, a more substantial solution might be necessary. Consider contacting an oral surgeon for wisdom tooth removal in Fresno. Don't worry, we've got your back.
