What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to develop in our mouths. They usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25. However, in some people, they can appear later in life. These teeth are named 'wisdom' teeth because they appear at a mature age when we are supposedly wiser. Your experience with wisdom teeth can vary greatly. Some of us don't notice at all when they've come in, while others may experience discomfort or pain.
Is extraction necessary for wisdom teeth?
We understand the discomfort one may experience when wisdom teeth begin to surface. Symptoms include pain at the back of your mouth, swollen gums around the emerging tooth, or possible facial swelling. While it can be distressing, removing wisdom teeth isn't always necessary. However, when pain persists or complications arise affecting adjoining teeth, comprehensive wisdom tooth care in Solana Beach is what you need.
How's a wisdom tooth extracted?
In preparing for your wisdom teeth surgery, it's important to get sufficient rest. Moreover, we'll use sedation to ensure you're comfortable throughout the process. This begins by creating a small incision in the gum tissue to expose the tooth and bone, and it's then we remove the wisdom tooth. However, in cases where it's firmly anchored, we might cut the tooth into smaller pieces. Lastly, we clean any debris from the tooth and close the area with stitches.
After wisdom teeth surgery, we find most people encounter mild discomfort, swelling, and maybe some transient bleeding, typically subsiding within a week. To speed up recovery, it's crucial you refrain from strenuous activities, stick to your prescribed medication, and maintain good oral hygiene, excluding the surgical site for the initial few days. Don't hesitate to contact your healthcare provider if the discomfort persists. Recovery is unique for everyone, so be patient with yourself during these weeks.
Post-extraction meal ideas
Right after wisdom teeth removal, go for soft and easy-to-chew food like mashed potatoes, pudding, or macaroni and cheese. Struggling with tough, chewy meals won't do you any favors here. Baked halibut is another great choice as it's soft and packed with nutrients. However, it takes about a week to get back to our normal routine, chowing down on any food we fancy. Patience, my friend, is key to recovery and back to enjoying your favorite meals.
Typical cost of wisdom tooth extraction in Solana Beach
Wisdom teeth removal in Solana Beach varies widely due to different factors like how complicated your situation is, and whether you're insured or not. While insurance can cover a portion of the cost, additional fees such as sedation, x-rays, and post-operative care may still apply. We recommend reaching out to your insurance provider to understand what's covered and what you're responsible for. Remember, we're here to help make this procedure as affordable and comfortable as possible.
