what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, we call them our third molars, usually erupt in our late teens or early twenties. They're evolutionary remnants from our ancestors who needed extra molars to grind down plant tissue. Over time, as our diets have softened and evolved, the need for these extra grinding teeth has abated; however, our genetic blueprint still includes them. So, you're not alone in this natural process.

When taking out your wisdom teeth, we first numb the area with anesthesia to keep the process safe and painless. Upper teeth removal is generally straightforward - punchy and precise. Lower teeth, however, can be a bit more complicated, often due to their angle of growth or proximity to nerves. But don't worry, we're experienced professionals. We've got this.

Aftercare recommendations

Post wisdom teeth removal, we manage the recovery process with utmost care. It's normal to feel discomfort and swelling during the first few days. Ensure you're not disturbing the blood clots in your mouth as they facilitate healing. When it comes to rinsing, we recommend warm saltwater 24 hours post surgery. Regular ice-pack applications help reduce inflammation. Over the counter analgesics provide relief from pain; consult us for stronger ones if needed. Additionally, heed signs of dry socket or infection and seek immediate attention if they occur.
