what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are our third set of molars that typically emerge in late adolescence. Some, however, may not even realize this as about 35% of people are born without wisdom teeth. We may never see them potentially due to evolutionary changes. While oral surgeons are often needed if complications occur, if you're in that 35%, you've avoided a potential pit stop in the surgical suite. Interesting, isn't it?

symptoms of impacted wisdom tooth

Is wisdom tooth extraction a necessity?

Recognizing wisdom teeth is easier when you're aware of the symptoms: gum swelling, jaw pain, difficulty opening your mouth, and an uncomfortable sensation at your mouth's back. However, not all wisdom teeth need removal. We'll advise removal at our expert wisdom teeth surgery service in Norwood when discomfort persists, impaction occurs, or cleaning becomes difficult. Your well-being's paramount, after all.

Impacted wisdom teeth removal

We make removing wisdom teeth a breeze. First, we numb the area to ensure you don't feel a thing. We then make an incision in the gum tissue, extracting the wisdom tooth. In some instances, we might need to break the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal. Each tooth's extraction usually takes around 20 minutes. So, if you're having all four out, we're looking at your appointment lasting under 2 hours. And remember, during the procedure, you're in the safest of hands.

What to eat after wisdom tooth removal?

After getting your wisdom teeth removed, you're likely yearning for a hot meal. We've all been there. It's tough, but staying away from solid foods and choosing softer options is the best route to take. How about starting with a warm bowl of blended carrot soup? It's soothing and won't jeopardize your healing gums. Moreover, cream of barley soup is another excellent choice since it's easy to eat and satisfying. Remember, it's about treating your mouth kindly in these early stages.

FAQ

How big are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, vary in size. They can be similar in size to other molars, typically about 1 inch in length. However, the actual size can differ based on various factors such as jaw size and individual anatomy.

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

Local anesthesia numbs only the specific area being treated, while general anesthesia puts the patient into a deep sleep. Wisdom teeth removal under local anesthesia allows the patient to remain conscious but without feeling pain, while general anesthesia requires the patient to be completely unconscious throughout the procedure.

How to reduce swelling after wisdom teeth removal?

To reduce swelling after wisdom teeth removal, apply an ice pack to the affected area for 20 minutes on, then 20 minutes off. Avoid hot drinks and exercise for the first 24 hours.

How long should I avoid alcoholic beverages after wisdom teeth removal?

It is recommended to avoid consuming alcoholic beverages for at least 48 hours after wisdom teeth removal. This helps to minimize the risk of complications such as excessive bleeding, dry socket, and delayed healing.

Are there any age restrictions for wisdom teeth removal?

Yes, there are no specific age restrictions for wisdom teeth removal. However, it is recommended to have them extracted during the late teens or early twenties to minimize complications and promote a smoother recovery process.
