what are wisdom teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are the last molars, typically appearing in our late teens or early twenties. Known as "third molars," they're remnants from a time when our ancestors needed extra chewing power. Interestingly, they've become irrelevant in today's world, thanks to modern diets. Surprisingly, some of us don't develop wisdom teeth at all. However, whether you get them or not, it's essential to maintain your oral health diligently.

Is it necessary to remove wisdom tooth?

We notice wisdom teeth coming in when you experience pain, swelling near your jaw, and difficulty opening your mouth. However, it's important to know that sometimes these symptoms can be mild or non-existent. Depending on the condition and positioning of your wisdom teeth, removal may not always be necessary. Consult with wisdom tooth extraction experts in Berkley to analyze benefits, risks, and to determine your best option.

wisdom tooth removal surgery near you

How are wisdom teeth removed?

Removing wisdom teeth requires precise surgical procedure. Firstly, local anesthesia is gently administered to ensure you're completely relaxed and pain-free. Then, with expert surgical precision, we extract the wisdom tooth, being extra careful to avoid damaging surrounding tissues and nerves. However, it's not a blind operation; we use special instruments to feel around, ensuring direct touch with the nerve structures is avoided. On the other hand, during the process, there might be slight pressure, but rest assured, any discomfort will vanish with the anesthesia. Just like a skilled navigator sidestepping the obstacles, we carefully navigate the delicate oral landscape, ensuring your safety.

Aftercare recommendations

After wisdom teeth surgery, we begin the aftercare process to facilitate recovery. Initially, it's normal to experience discomfort and swelling, but these symptoms gradually alleviate over a few days. Subsequently, your gums start to heal; stitches dissolve in about a week. We must remember that everyone's healing process is unique and hence, may vary. During recovery, if you note prolonged pain, unusual swelling, or anything worrying, promptly contact your oral healthcare provider.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Safe foods to eat post-extraction

We all know that after wisdom teeth removal, we need to be a bit cautious about our diet. But don't fret, you've still got plenty tasty choices. First day is crucial. Stick to soft, cold treats like pudding, gelato or silky chocolate fondue - yummy, right? Moreover, nutrient-rich liquid items are good too, for instance - smoothies. By the second day, you'll be ready to enjoy some warm, comforting food, think well-cooked pasta or maybe a bowl of delicious strawberry compote.
