what are wisdom teeth

What's the definition of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, curiously titled as they surface during our late teens or early twenties— an age termed as the 'age of wisdom,' are our third molars. They are at the farthest back of our mouths. Initially, they served an important purpose: their function was to help our ancestors grind down plant tissue. However, over time as our diets have shifted, wisdom teeth have become somewhat vestigal, or unnecessary. Occasionally, complications may arise requiring an oral surgeon.

symptoms of impacted wisdom tooth

When is wisdom teeth removal necessary?

Symptoms of wisdom teeth coming in include pain, swelling, and difficulty opening your mouth. Sometimes, these teeth grow in perfectly fine, but if they're causing discomfort, it's essential we intervene. In Rancho Palos Verdes, we're professional wisdom tooth extraction experts committed to your wellbeing. Removal isn't always necessary; however, you should still make an appointment to evaluate your specific situation.

What's the process for taking out wisdom teeth?

We make sure the removal of wisdom teeth is safe and comfortable. You're first given anesthesia to make you relaxed and pain-free. Then, we gently extract the tooth (or teeth) that's been causing you trouble. Stitches are sometimes used, but not always. Moreover, these stitches are usually self-dissolving. So, there's no need for a return visit to have them removed.

Wisdom teeth removal aftercare

After wisdom teeth surgery, recovery is straightforward yet crucial. Bed rest is essential, meaning we won't exert our bodies for a few days to ensure seamless healing. With prescribed medication, managing discomfort and inflammation is feasible. For optimal healing, we're mindful not to disturb the surgical area. Regular mouth rinsing with warm salt water multiple times a day eliminates bacteria, preventing infection, which is particularly significant post-surgery. Following the surgeon's instructions systematically contributes significantly to a smooth, speedy recovery process.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Soft foods to eat after wisdom teeth removal

After extracting wisdom teeth, we must be careful about our food choices. Luckily, you're not stuck with just liquids. Soft foods, like baked apples and steamed carrots, are safe to eat and highly nutritious. They're easier to chew and they won't irritate your healing gums. However, it's crucial not to rush back into a regular diet. For about a week, maintain this softer diet while your body recovers. Remember, the food you choose can significantly impact your healing process.

FAQ

Can you keep your wisdom teeth if they don't cause problems?

Yes, it is possible to keep wisdom teeth if they are not causing any issues. Regular dental check-ups will help determine if they need to be removed or monitored for potential problems.

How can I prepare for my wisdom teeth removal surgery?

To prepare for wisdom teeth removal surgery, follow these steps: consult with your dentist, discuss the procedure, stop smoking, let your dentist know about any medications, arrange for transportation, and stock up on soft food and ice packs.

Can I use a straw after wisdom teeth removal?

Yes, it is generally safe to use a straw after wisdom teeth removal. However, it is recommended to wait until the initial healing period is over to prevent dislodging the blood clot. Consult with your oral surgeon for specific instructions based on your individual case.

How long should I avoid alcoholic beverages after wisdom teeth removal?

It is recommended to avoid alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours after wisdom teeth removal. It is important to give your body time to heal properly and prevent any complications.

Can wisdom teeth grow back after removal?

No, once wisdom teeth are removed, they do not grow back. This is because wisdom teeth are the third set of molars and are not replaced naturally once they have been extracted.
