what are wisdom teeth

What's the definition of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last of our teeth to come in, typically emerging between 17-25 years old. These teeth are found at the very back of the mouth and are often associated with oral health predicaments. We should keep an eye on them as they come in though, as they can make your mouth feel crowded or uncomfortable. However, it's important to remember every person's experience is different.

symptoms of impacted wisdom tooth

Should you have your wisdom teeth removed?

Wisdom teeth coming in can lead to uncomfortable symptoms. It's common to experience swollen gums, pain near the back of the mouth, bad breath, and difficulty opening the mouth. However, not everyone requires removal of their wisdom teeth. We offer comprehensive wisdom teeth surgery solutions in Sierra Madre if it's determined through an evaluation that you're a candidate. Remember, every individual's situation is unique, so consult with a professional for advice.

wisdom tooth removal surgery near you

How do they remove wisdom teeth?

Removing wisdom teeth, or third molars, starts with numbing the area using local anesthesia. We go in and cut a small incision into your gum to expose the tooth. Sometimes, it's simplicity itself, popped out in one piece. But other times – especially with lower wisdom teeth – we may need to break the tooth into smaller pieces. These fragments are then individually removed so it's easier on you. Now, upper wisdom teeth? They're generally more straightforward, more cooperative, like a piece of cake compared to steak. Here's how it usually goes down: We open up your gum, and voila – the whole tooth comes out smoothly. With both procedures, there's nothing to fear; you're in experienced hands.

Wisdom teeth removal aftercare

Wisdom teeth recovery starts immediately post-operation, when we'll apply gauze over the area to control any bleeding. Then, you'll transition to managing any soreness. Don't worry – a bit of swelling and discomfort is completely normal. Ibuprofen usually takes care of that. We'll encourage rest as your body heals. Remember, take things slowly. It'll usually take a few days to feel better, and, within two weeks, you're fully healed.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

What to eat post-op?

After wisdom teeth removal, it's crucial we nurture our bodies with soft, easy-to-eat foods. Silken tofu can be a fantastic choice, offering high-quality protein that promotes healing without the strain of chewing. Similarly, mashed acorn squash is a powerhouse of vitamins and fiber, soothing in texture and delicious to taste, making it an ideal post-surgery addition to your meals. Moreover, we should continue hydrating with water, avoiding straws that can disrupt the healing process. Remember, nourishing your body is key in this recovery journey.
