what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are our last set of teeth to come in, usually between ages 17 and 21. Not everyone has them though. Sometimes, they're missing from our oral blueprint altogether. However, if you have them, it's like having an extra bonus – an additional tool for grinding food. On the other hand, if they're not present, it’s usually no cause for concern. We all have unique smiles after all, don't we?

How do you take out wisdom teeth?

Cracking into wisdom teeth removal, we first create a small incision in the gum to expose the tooth and, sometimes, the bone. Now, if the bone is blocking the path, we'll have to carefully remove a tiny part of it. Here's the quirky part: lower wisdom teeth, they're trickier. They might require a different approach, like sectioning - splitting the tooth into pieces for an easier removal. Piece of cake, right? You're in good hands.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

What to eat after wisdom tooth removal?

After removing your wisdom teeth, our diet must be gentle on the healing gums. Opt for soft, non-irritating foods like fruit puree and mashed peas initially. Although we may crave a steaming hot soup or an icy cold smoothie, extreme temperatures can exacerbate sensitivity and delay healing. Thus, it's safer to stick to food that's at room temperature or slightly warm. So, nourish wisely for quicker recovery.

FAQ

How big are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth can vary in size, but they are typically similar in size to molars. They can be as large as the other molars or slightly smaller.

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

Local anesthesia numbs the area around the wisdom teeth, allowing the patient to remain awake during the procedure. General anesthesia, on the other hand, puts the patient to sleep and blocks pain sensations throughout the entire body.

What are dry sockets, and how can they be prevented?

Dry sockets occur after tooth extraction when the blood clot that forms in the socket is dislodged or dissolves, exposing the nerves and bone. To prevent dry sockets, avoid smoking, strenuous activities, using straws, and follow post-operative instructions provided by the dentist.

When can I drink alcohol after wisdom teeth removal?

It is recommended to avoid drinking alcohol for at least 24 hours after wisdom teeth removal. Alcohol can interfere with the healing process, increase bleeding, cause dry socket, and interact with pain medications. It's important to follow your dentist's instructions for a smooth recovery.

Can wisdom teeth rot under gums?

Yes, wisdom teeth can rot under the gums if they are not properly cleaned or if there is an infection. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene are important to prevent rotting.
