What exactly are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth to erupt in the mouth. They usually make their appearance between the ages of 17 and 25, hence the name "wisdom teeth." These extra molars were helpful to our ancestors who had larger jaws and needed them for chewing tough, unprocessed foods. However, due to evolution, our jaws have become smaller, making it common for wisdom teeth to be impacted or partially eruption.
Is wisdom tooth extraction always necessary?
Symptoms of wisdom teeth coming in include pain, swelling, tender gums, bad breath, difficulty opening your mouth, and jaw stiffness. If you experience severe pain, infection, tooth decay, gum disease, or damage to other teeth, removing wisdom teeth may be necessary. Seek advice from a dentist at Upland Dental Office who can evaluate your specific situation and recommend the best course of action.
How do they remove wisdom teeth?
During the removal of wisdom teeth, the dentist will make a small incision in the gum to access the tooth. Then, using special tools and experience, they will carefully extract the tooth. To minimize bleeding and ensure a clean surgical site, measures are taken such as applying pressure on the area, using sutures, and sometimes packing the socket with gauze. These actions help control bleeding and promote healing.
Wisdom teeth removal aftercare
After having your wisdom teeth removed, it is important to follow certain steps for a smooth recovery. Take the prescribed pain medications, like ibuprofen, as directed to manage any discomfort or swelling. Apply an ice pack to the jaw intermittently for the first 24 hours to minimize swelling. Stick to a soft-food diet and avoid using a straw, smoking, or vigorous rinsing to prevent complications. Keeping the mouth clean by gently rinsing with warm saltwater is crucial. Follow post-operative instructions provided by your oral surgeon.
Foods to eat after having your wisdom teeth extracted
Soft and nutritious foods are recommended 24 hours after wisdom tooth extraction. You can enjoy foods like chia pudding and baby cereal, as they are easy to consume and won't require much chewing. These options provide a smooth texture that will be gentle on your healing gums. Remember to avoid hot foods and drinks, opt for lukewarm or cold options instead. It is crucial to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your oral surgeon for a successful recovery.
