what are wisdom teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, scientifically known as third molars, are the last to erupt in our mouths, usually making their appearance between ages 17 and 25. They're typically located in each corner of your mouth, deep in the back. However, given their late arrival, often there isn't enough room for them to grow properly. Despite this, we can still maintain excellent dental care to ensure a healthy, radiant smile.

What's the process for taking out wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth removal is a simple, common procedure. We first numb the area, ensuring you're comfortable throughout. Making a small incision in the gum tissue, we gently expose the tooth and surrounding bone. If it's impacted, we may remove small sections of bone to facilitate extraction. Fear not, this bone heals over time, minimally impacting your jaw's overall structure. So, you're in safe hands, and we'll ensure the process is smooth as silk.

Aftercare recommendations

After you've had wisdom teeth surgery, the recovery process is important for healing properly. During the initial days, swelling is common, but it can be managed by using a cold compress. We don't recommend any strenuous activities; quiet rest is key. Maintaining good oral hygiene is also essential, yet be gentle around the surgical site. If pain persists or you're unsure about anything during recovery, always consult with your dental professional immediately.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Post-extraction meal ideas

After pulling those wisdom teeth, we're down to diet being key. Soft foods like chicken broth, full of nutrients, are a go-to. It's warm, savory, and easy on the gums. Ever tried brussels sprouts puree? It's nutritious, too. Many swear by bone broth as it aids in recovery because it's nutrient-rich, however, ensure it's not too hot. Otherwise, it might cause complications. Remember, eat smart, recover faster.

Emergency wisdom tooth extraction in Lithia

Pain from a wisdom tooth isn't usually classified as an emergency situation. However, persistent severe pain calls for no wait, immediate consultation. Now, differentiating wisdom tooth pain from TMJ symptoms may be challenging. If you're experiencing discomfort around your jaw and it's radiating towards your ear, you're likely dealing with TMJ. On the other hand, wisdom tooth issues tend to present localized discomfort in the mouth. Remember, we're here, ready to be your wisdom tooth removal expert in Lithia.
