what are wisdom teeth

What's the definition of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are our last molars, typically surfacing in late adolescence or early adulthood. It's often a topic of fascination, as they've developed a reputation for causing trouble. We all have them, but not everyone's wisdom teeth actually emerge because sometimes, they're impeded by other teeth or jawbone structure. However, you're among the 45% of people who never see these teeth at all, you've been spared the ordeal. In other words, yes, there are people who never get wisdom teeth.

How's a wisdom tooth extracted?

From experience, we know the removal of wisdom teeth is a delicate task. We first numb your mouth, then carefully extract the tooth. However, depending on how complex the extraction is, sutures may be necessary. They're not always needed, but when they are, it's to control bleeding and promote healing. Our primary goal? Making sure you're as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure.

Aftercare instructions

After having your wisdom teeth removed, initial healing takes about 2-3 weeks. We start with swelling and discomfort subsiding after a few days. You'll need plenty of rest, but it's equally important to maintain oral cleanliness, so gentle mouth rinses are recommended. However, be careful not to dislodge the blood clots over the healing sockets. Gradually return to normal activities as you feel better. Pain medications and antibiotics are part of the process. Remember, no smoking or vigorous exercise.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Food suggestions after wisdom tooth surgery

After tooth extraction, we should stick to soft foods. Pureed fruit, yogurt, and pasta with alfredo sauce are perfect choices. However, avoid roast beef or other tough food until the doctor approves. Typically, wait about a week to prevent infection or dry socket. Isn't it exciting that we've got this all figured out?
