What exactly are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that people often develop in their late teens or early twenties. They're intriguingly named 'wisdom teeth' as they usually emerge at a mature age, when individuals are theoretically wiser. As our patient, you may experience no issues with these late bloomers. However, for others, wisdom teeth can be bothersome, potentially causing discomfort or other complications. That's why we’re always monitoring their progress.
Is wisdom tooth extraction a necessity?
Feeling discomfort? You might have wisdom teeth coming in. Typical symptoms include pain, swelling, or difficulty opening your mouth. However, not everyone needs these teeth removed. When they're causing pain or are crooked, that's when an extraction might be recommended. We're the leading provider of wisdom tooth extractions in Glenwood, so why not book an appointment? Let's get you comfortable again.
What's the process for taking out wisdom teeth?
As an oral surgeon, we delicately create an opening in the gum to uncover the wisdom tooth. It's sometimes encased in bone, so we might remove a bit of bone to free the tooth. By gently moving it up and down, we loosen the tooth from its anchorage in the bone. Once loose, it's carefully lifted out. Seems scary? On the contrary. Throughout this, you're completely numb, feeling nothing more than just a bit of pressure.
Wisdom tooth aftercare
After we've had our wisdom teeth removed, it's natural to feel some discomfort. To alleviate this, use prescribed medication and apply ice to your jaw area as directed. Moreover, brush gently around the surgery site and rinse carefully with a mild saltwater solution. Don't succumb to the temptation, you must avoid smoking and using straws. Remember, keeping your mouth clean promotes a swift recovery. It's critical that everybody gives their mouth the care it merits after tooth extraction.
What to eat after wisdom tooth removal?
After wisdom teeth removal, we typically recommend a soft diet. You're in luck because that can include delicious mango puree. However, you should avoid so-called "tricky" foods like hollandaise sauce, which, despite its creamy texture, can sneak into extraction sites causing discomfort. Once you've hit the 7-day mark, you're generally safe to reintroduce solid foods slowly. As always, monitor your symptom response. If your mouth's letting you know it's not ready yet, heed the warning. It's your best guard against complications.
