What's the definition of wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that appear at the back of our mouth, usually between the ages of 17 and 25. They were useful long ago when our ancestors ate lots of coarse foods, but now they aren't very important. Some people have enough space for the wisdom teeth to grow properly, but others don't. If they don't have enough space, they can cause pain or damage to nearby teeth, so sometimes dentists need to take them out.
Should you have your wisdom teeth removed?
The symptoms of wisdom teeth coming in include pain, swelling, gum inflammation, jaw stiffness, and bad breath. Sometimes, discomfort can occur while eating or talking. If wisdom teeth are causing crowding, decay, cysts, or damaging adjacent teeth, they may need to be removed. To address these concerns, it is essential to visit a trusted Newport Beach dental office to evaluate if removal is necessary for maintaining oral health.
How's a wisdom tooth extracted?
During the surgery to remove your wisdom teeth, the dentist will use special tools to gently loosen and extract them from your jawbone. To minimize bleeding, they might apply pressure or use a laser to cauterize the blood vessels. A clean surgical site is ensured by thoroughly cleaning away any debris or remaining bone fragments. The dentist will take utmost care to ensure a smooth and successful procedure.
After a wisdom teeth surgery, it is important to follow these steps for a smooth recovery. Take prescribed painkillers and continue with a non-prescription anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen to alleviate discomfort and reduce swelling. Avoid touching the surgical area with fingers or tongue. Apply an ice pack to the cheek to reduce swelling. Stick to a soft-food diet for a few days. Gently rinse the mouth with saltwater. Maintain oral hygiene without disturbing the surgical site. Attend follow-up visits as scheduled.
What to eat post-op?
After wisdom teeth removal, it's crucial to follow a soft food diet to aid healing. Consider steamed carrots which provide essential vitamins and minerals. Honeydew melon can also be included as it is hydrating and gentle on the healing area. Remember to avoid hard, crunchy, or sticky foods as they can cause discomfort or damage to the surgical site. Drink plenty of water and avoid using straws to prevent complications.
How much should I expect to pay?
The cost of wisdom teeth removal in Newport Beach can vary depending on several factors such as the type of extraction (simple or impacted) and any additional costs for dental care. Whether or not it is covered by dental insurance would depend on your specific insurance coverage and benefits. Our dental office can help you determine if your insurance covers this procedure and provide affordable options for those without insurance.
