what are wisdom teeth

What's the definition of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are typically the last teeth we get, usually making their debut in our late teens or early twenties. In the corners of our mouth, you'll find them, if you're among the 65% of people who develop all four. But remember: not everyone has wisdom teeth. You may be part of the 35% without them. Even though it's not a hard-and-fast rule, there's a chance you won't have to deal with these latecomers in your mouth.

symptoms of impacted wisdom tooth

When is wisdom teeth removal necessary?

When wisdom teeth are coming in, you may experience swelling and pain in your jaw, difficulty opening your mouth, or a bad taste. Sometimes, it's perfectly normal, but when these symptoms persist causing immense discomfort, it might be time for intervention. We, in Phoenix, are known for conducting the highest quality wisdom teeth removals. Trust us, it'll neither feel nor taste bad during our procedure; we ensure a smooth, pain-free experience.

How do you take out wisdom teeth?

We start by numbing the area before making a small incision to expose the tooth and surrounding bone. It's often necessary to divide the tooth into tiny pieces for a smooth removal. Sounds scary, right? But hey, you're the champ. Bone can sometimes obstruct a tooth (this is called impaction), so we carefully remove it. We're all about preserving as much healthy tissue as possible. After the removal, we stitch up the gums, leaving you wiser, minus a wisdom tooth. Can you believe it? Moreover, it's safe and quick. That's the beauty of modern dentistry.

Aftercare instructions

After wisdom teeth extraction, a crucial recovery period follows. Our body needs time to heal, and for us, it means vigilant oral care. You're likely to experience swelling but don't worry, it's perfectly normal and shouldn't last longer than three days. During this time, your mouth requires gentle cleaning, so avoid vigorous rinsing. Use warm saltwater ‘almost’ freely. It’s important to steer clear of straws altogether as suction can dislodge the blood clots that form in the healing sockets. Increasing discomfort is expected, however, should it increase drastically or persist beyond the typical week-long recovery, reach out to your oral surgeon immediately. Keep in mind, post-extraction medication plays a significant role. Pain relievers and antibiotics must be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Remember, your mouth needs your attention now more than ever. So, let’s be attentive to it, ensuring a speedy, successful recovery.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Soft foods to eat after wisdom teeth removal

After pulling those wisdom teeth, we need to be scrupulous about what we feast on, right? Soft foods will be our best friends, like making a heartwarming cheese fondue - it's easy to eat and soothes your mouth. But keep it light on the spice. Almond milkshakes are another excellent option - both nourishing and thirst-quenching. And remember, spice is not nice here - it can irritate your healing gums.
