What's the definition of wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to erupt in our oral cavity. While the timeline can vary, it's widely accepted that wisdom teeth typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 21. However, some people may experience this later in life. Moreover, we understand that everyone's dental journey is unique, and it's absolutely normal if your wisdom teeth follow a different timeline. In your experience, when did your wisdom teeth emerge?
Should you have your wisdom teeth removed?
Symptoms of wisdom teeth coming in include discomfort or pressure at the back of your mouth, emergence of new teeth, jawbone pain, and occasional patient reports of unpleasant taste or infection-like symptoms. However, not all wisdom teeth need removal. If they're unproblematic, extraction isn't mandatory. On the other hand, if they're causing you discomfort, we offer pain-free wisdom teeth extraction service in Chicago Heights. Do you want to enjoy the benefits of a pain-free procedure?
What's the process for taking out wisdom teeth?
When we talk about wisdom teeth removal, it's generally a safe procedure without complications. We make small cuts in your gums to open it up and sometimes, we might need to cut the tooth into smaller pieces for easier extraction. While the approach is quite similar for both upper and lower wisdom teeth, some lower tooth extractions may be a bit more complex due to their closer proximity to nerves.
Wisdom tooth aftercare
After we gently extract those bothersome wisdom teeth, you'll experience normal temporary side effects like mild discomfort, minor swelling, and a bit of bleeding. You'll want to rest, keep your head propped up, and apply ice to that tender area to minimize swelling and speed up the healing process. Moreover, avoid vigorous rinsing, straws, and strenuous activity. It's essential to care for yourself gently and patiently. You're on your way to a more comfortable, healthy mouth.
What to eat post-op?
After wisdom tooth surgery, we suggest gentle foods, like a savory tempeh broth or a soft rice cake. It’s crucial to avoid anything hard, crunchy, or spicy. You're best avoiding straws, too, as the suction might disturb your healing gums. Moreover, we'd steer clear of alcohol, coffee, and soda. Hydration’s key, so let’s stick to plain water or milk. You'll appreciate these simple mealtime changes, they’re part of getting you back to normal.
Typical cost of wisdom tooth extraction in Chicago Heights
The cost for wisdom teeth removal in Chicago Heights can vary. One factor that can affect the cost is whether you're having all four wisdom teeth removed at once or in separate sessions. Sometimes, it's more cost effective to have all four teeth removed in one go under one anesthesia session. However, we'd need to weigh that against your comfort and health. Your needs are our priority.
