What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, often a hot topic in dental health discussions, are actually our third set of molars. These late-bloomers typically make their debut during our late teens to early twenties. They're often a milestone-marker, signaling that we've transitioned from adolescence to adulthood. While they may cause discomfort for some, they're part of our biological makeup, our body's back-up plan, in case we lose other molars in our dental journey. Isn't that fascinating?
Is it necessary to remove wisdom tooth?
Experiencing pain in your back molars? It could indicate your wisdom teeth are coming in. Other symptoms include swelling, redness, and discomfort when chewing. Their growth can cause crowding, which leads to alignment issues. We're a leading provider of wisdom tooth extractions in Hyattsville, proficient at removing impacted wisdom teeth - they're problematic and can cause infections and discomfort.
How's a wisdom tooth extracted?
We're dealing with wisdom teeth removal here. It's not a long process - think around 45 minutes to an hour max. Here's how it works: we make a small incision in your gum to expose the tooth. The tooth might be fully or partially impacted, so then we have to cut it into smaller pieces. Yep, you've guessed it, we're not pulling the whole wisdom tooth out in one go. Instead, we carefully remove piece by piece. That's wisdom tooth surgery for you.
After wisdom teeth removal, it’s not unusual to experience slight discomfort when the anesthesia wears off. However, the wound should start to heal quite rapidly. We recommend taking it easy for a few days, while applying a cold pack may lessen any swelling. Moreover, a clean mouth accelerates recovery, so continue brushing gently around the affected area and you'll likely be back to normal in 7-10 days. Much as waiting can be a nuisance, it's crucial for the healing process.
Safe foods to eat post-extraction
We understand that after wisdom teeth removal, you're hungry and want real food. Stick to a diet of soft foods. Delicious pureed mango and silken tofu will go a long way. They're nutritious and easy on your healing mouth. Drink plenty of fluids but avoid straws. When you're feeling up to it, gradually reintroduce solid foods. Don't rush; your comfort is crucial. Keep in mind that eating shouldn't hurt. If it does, it's time to call a doctor.
How much should I expect to pay?
We understand that wisdom teeth removal can be a stressor, particularly if they've only partially erupted. Depending on your insurance plan, some portion of the procedure might be covered. It's vital to consult your provider to gain a clear understanding of your benefits. While complications like infection or damage heighten the urgency, wisdom teeth causing discomfort or pain are still valid concerns. Rest assured, we're committed to prioritizing your comfort and alleviating your symptoms promptly.
