what are wisdom teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, represent the last set of teeth we develop. Usually erupting between our late teens and early twenties, they've often been viewed as a symbol of maturity. However, predicting their precise moment of eruption remains elusive as it's largely dependent upon individual dental formation.Although located at the very back of the jaw, these molars can be as functional as any other teeth, provided they're aligned correctly and gum tissue isn't causing issues.

Experiencing jaw pain, swollen gums, or difficulty opening your mouth? You're likely feeling wisdom teeth trying to push in. It's important we address these symptoms promptly to prevent decay. When these teeth become impacted, or stuck under the gums, it's time to give them proper attention. We often remove impacted teeth to prevent future complications. In Palm Harbor, you'll find specialized wisdom tooth care providers ready to assist with your needs.

How do they remove wisdom teeth?

We start by numbing the area around your wisdom tooth – don't worry, we make sure you won't feel a thing. Then, we cut a small opening in your gum to expose the tooth and bone. The tricky part begins, where we remove any bone blocking access to the tooth’s root. However, instead of yanking it out, we gently loosen and lift your wisdom tooth. Voila. It's out. Amazing, right?

Recovering from wisdom teeth surgery typically involves manageable swelling and discomfort, but don't worry, we've got tactics to ease your healing.

Furthermore, gentle rinsing with warm salt water aids in keeping the extraction site clean and reducing discomfort. Remember, even if you're feeling better, don't jump back into strenuous activities too soon. Slow and steady wins the post-operative race.
