What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to emerge, typically when we're about 17-25 years old, hence they've been dubbed 'wisdom' teeth as it's during an age associated with gaining wisdom. They're located at the very back of the mouth. However, if they become problematic, an oral surgeon can assist to ensure you're comfortable and toothache-free. It's truly nothing to fear.
When wisdom tooth extraction is needed?
We've noticed that wisdom teeth coming in can cause swollen, tender gums, pain in your jaw, and discomfort when eating. You might even see your face swell up. It's not always necessary to remove wisdom teeth; however, if they're causing discomfort or are impacted, extraction is often recommended. On the other hand, we've seen many cases where they've fit comfortably and remained. As leading wisdom tooth removal specialists in Woodbridge, we can definitively guide you.
How does wisdom tooth removal work?
We know that having your wisdom teeth removed sounds scary, right? But, it's an experience we'll get through together. We'll access the surgical site by making a small incision in your gum. Once that's done, we'll remove the tooth, sometimes in pieces if it makes it easier. It's quick, efficient, and done before you know it.
Wisdom tooth aftercare
After we remove your wisdom teeth, it's critical to rest and take it slow for the initial 24 hours. Use gauze to control any bleeding, and make sure to change it often. Regular icing can help reduce swelling, but watch out for numbness. Pain medications can help keep discomfort to a minimum, but know that some pain is normal. If it's severe or lingering, make sure to contact us immediately. Remember to keep the healing area clean by gently rinsing but avoid forceful spitting. Don't touch the site with your tongue or fingers; leave it be for optimal healing. Quick recovery time can vary, but sticking to these guidelines can certainly speed up the process. Your post-surgery experience may not be identical to someone else's - How have you been managing?
Food to eat after wisdom teeth removal
Post wisdom teeth removal, it's wise to stick to a soft food diet. We can tackle hunger pangs by indulging in nutritious soft foods: creamy cauliflower mash and tender cooked spinach can keep you satisfied. However, keep the pieces small to avoid discomfort. Moreover, hydration is key. Sip on fruit-infused waters or smoothies. On the other hand, steer clear of straws - the sucking motion can disrupt healing. Remember, eating shouldn’t be painful post-surgery.
