What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, our last set of molars, typically appear in our late teens to early twenties. Their emergence at an age when we're said to start gaining wisdom gives them their name. Although they were useful in our ancestor's diet, development of softer, processed foods makes them less necessary now. Nonetheless, they're a part of our oral health journey, changing the dental landscape as we mature.

FAQ

Why do we have wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, were useful for our early ancestors to chew tough and coarse food. Due to evolution, our jaws have become smaller, making wisdom teeth unnecessary and often causing problems such as pain and crowding in the mouth.

What is the difference between local anesthesia and general anesthesia for wisdom teeth removal?

Local anesthesia numbs only the area around the wisdom teeth, allowing the patient to remain conscious during the procedure. General anesthesia, on the other hand, renders the patient unconscious and has a greater level of risk and complexity, requiring specialized monitoring and recovery time.

What should I do if I experience excessive bleeding after the wisdom teeth surgery?

If you experience excessive bleeding after wisdom teeth surgery, immediately apply gentle pressure to the bleeding area using a clean gauze or cloth for 30 minutes. Avoid rinsing your mouth forcefully and contact your oral surgeon for further guidance.

Can I drive myself home after wisdom teeth removal?

No, you cannot drive yourself home after wisdom teeth removal. The sedation used during the procedure impairs your ability to drive safely. Find someone to drive you instead.

Are there any age restrictions for wisdom teeth removal?

Yes, there are generally no age restrictions for wisdom teeth removal. However, it is recommended to remove them during late teenage years or early twenties, as older patients may experience more complications and longer healing times. It is important to consult with a dental professional for personalized advice.
