what are wisdom teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the teeth farthest back in our mouths. We evolved to have them as part of our ancestors' diet, which required more chewing power. However, today's meals are softer, which means they're not as necessary for our health. Moreover, many people's jaws are not large enough to fit them, leading to crowding issues. So, while you may have them, they're no longer essential.

Is it necessary to remove wisdom tooth?

Experiencing discomfort in the back of your mouth? You're likely teething wisdom teeth. Symptoms often include pain, swelling, difficulty chewing, and tender gums. Sometimes, we can let nature take its course. However, if your pain persists, it's time to see a specialist. In Pittsburg, we're known for providing expert wisdom teeth surgery service. Remember, actions foreseen, no surprises encountered.

What's the process for taking out wisdom teeth?

In the enthralling realm of wisdom tooth removal, we plunge into a world you're not too familiar with. However, we'll make it simple here - upper and lower wisdom teeth offer diverging challenges. With the upper ones, we aim for the surgical approach, making a small incision, removing the tooth, and sealing it with stiches. However, lower wisdom teeth often demand a little more precision due to their proximity to nerves. There, we typically remove them gradually in pieces, to ensure no harm comes to those nerves, and then lovingly wrap the gum tissue with stitches. It's not a one-size-fits-all approach but rather a carefully tailored journey for you and your teeth.

Recovering from wisdom teeth surgery, we need to tend to the wound properly to ensure a smooth healing process. It's entirely normal if you feel discomfort or swelling initially; that's our body doing its job to heal the extraction site. Moreover, it's vital to maintain good oral hygiene without disturbing the wound. A gentle rinse with warm salt water can expedite healing. Resting adequately will also speed up your recovery. You're on a good healing journey already.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Safe foods to eat post-extraction

Here's the scoop: After wisdom teeth removal, we've got to stick to soft foods, and cauliflower mash is a prime pick – it's easy on your gums and packed with vitamins that bolster healing. Quinoa, a supergrain, is another fabulous choice. It's soft, protein-rich, and aids in reducing swelling. Remember, staying hydrated is key. Drink plenty of water, but ditch the straws – they can derail your recovery.
