What exactly are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the extra teeth that grow at the back of our mouths. They usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25, which is why they are called wisdom teeth. Interestingly, not everyone gets wisdom teeth. Some people are born without them, and others may only get one or two instead of four. It's kind of like a surprise. These extra teeth can sometimes cause problems, so it's important to take care of them and see a dentist if there are any issues.
Is wisdom tooth extraction a necessity?
Symptoms of wisdom teeth emerging usually include jaw pain, discomfort, and swelling. These third molars may cause overcrowding or get impacted, meaning they can't fully erupt. In such cases, extraction may be necessary to prevent further dental problems. If you experience any of these issues, it's best to schedule an appointment at Marina Dental Office for a professional evaluation. They will assess your situation and recommend the appropriate treatment.
How's a wisdom tooth extracted?
During wisdom teeth removal surgery, the dentist will start by using numbing medicine to ensure you don't feel any pain. Then, they will make a small incision in your gums to access the wisdom tooth. In some cases, the tooth may need to be divided into smaller pieces for easier removal. Once the tooth is removed, stitches might be placed to close the incision. This procedure aims to gently remove the wisdom teeth while taking care of the surrounding tissue.
The fastest way to recover from wisdom teeth removal is to follow post-operative instructions provided by the oral surgeon, which may include resting, applying ice packs to reduce swelling, taking prescribed medications, avoiding strenuous activities, eating soft foods, and maintaining good oral hygiene by gently rinsing with warm saltwater. These measures can promote healing and minimize discomfort, allowing for a faster recovery.
What to eat after wisdom tooth removal?
After wisdom teeth removal, you can typically start eating normally once the anesthesia wears off, which is usually a few hours after the surgery. However, it is recommended to stick to a soft and cool diet for the first few days to promote healing. Foods like yogurt and canned fruit can be a good option during this time as they are gentle on the surgical site.
How much should I expect to pay?
The cost of wisdom teeth removal in Marina may vary depending on factors such as the type of extraction (simple or impacted) and any additional treatment required. Dental insurance coverage for this procedure also varies depending on the specific dental plan and its benefits. Our dental office can help you determine if your insurance covers wisdom teeth removal and explain any additional costs if applicable. For those without insurance, we strive to provide affordable dental care options.
Same-day wisdom tooth extraction in Marina
Wisdom tooth pain can be an emergency if it involves swelling or difficulty in breathing. Differentiating between wisdom tooth pain and TMJ can be done by considering symptoms like jaw pain, clicking sounds, and difficulty in opening the mouth for TMJ, while wisdom tooth pain typically involves a dull ache in the back of the mouth. If you experience severe pain or swelling, we recommend seeking immediate care. For the best wisdom teeth removal dentists in Marina, consider researching online or asking for referrals from friends or family.
