what are wisdom teeth

What's the definition of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to develop in our mouths, typically emerging between ages 17 to 21. Though originally vital for our ancestors who needed extra teeth to chew a rough diet, today, they're often considered superfluous. As they develop during young adulthood- a period often associated with the acquisition of wisdom- they've been dubbed 'wisdom teeth'. This late blooming can, however, cause crowding or alignment problems, as our mouths may not have enough room to accommodate them.

When is wisdom teeth removal necessary?

Wisdom teeth can cause bad breath, pain, inflammation, and often shifting in your other teeth as they erupt. It's not always necessary to remove wisdom teeth. However, if they're causing discomfort or other dental issues, you might need assistance from specialized wisdom tooth care providers in Berwyn. We can guide you through the process, ensuring you're comfortable and informed.

How's a wisdom tooth extracted?

In removing wisdom teeth, we firstly numb the area around the tooth to ensure you're comfortable during the procedure. Then, we make a small incision in the gum tissue to expose the tooth. Once it's visible, we carefully break it into smaller pieces for easier extraction. However, for lower teeth, there's often a denser bone surrounding them, making their removal slightly more complex. So, instead of breaking them, we often remove them in one piece.

Wisdom tooth healing

After wisdom teeth removal, you're on the way to feeling better. It's completely normal for initial discomfort and swelling, but we'll manage this with ibuprofen. You'll notice, within a few days, the tenderness and puffiness starts subsiding, gradually making way for recovery. However, continue taking it easy; engaging in strenuous activities might delay your healing process. On the other hand, if you notice persistent pain or other abnormalities, reach out for professional help without delay.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Soft foods to eat after wisdom teeth removal

We highly recommend you enjoy a diet of soft, nutrient-rich foods following your wisdom teeth removal. Foods like pureed fruits or mashed veggies would work wonders. Delicious crab bisque is easy on the mouth and line-up of vitamins aid in healing. Creamed cabbage is another go-to. It's crunchy raw but, when creamed, it's as gentle as they come. Don't forget to keep hydrated. Water, anyone?
