what are wisdom teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, or 'third molars', are the last adult teeth to come through, usually in our late teens or early twenties. Ostensibly, their function harks back to our ancestors' diet of tough, hard-to-chew foods which necessitated extra grinding power. However, in today's world, with our refined and softer foods, they've become somewhat redundant in terms of dental care. We don't really 'need' them, but they're there, part of our fascinating anatomical evolution.

Is extraction necessary for wisdom teeth?

Recognizing wisdom teeth coming in can be tricky. Symptoms include pain or discomfort towards the back of the mouth, swollen gums, difficulty opening your mouth, and sometimes earache. However, not everyone needs to remove their wisdom teeth. We recommend extraction if they're causing discomfort, are impacted, or lead to oral health issues. Here in Harper Woods, we provide comprehensive wisdom teeth surgery solutions to manage these difficulties effectively.

How are wisdom teeth removed?

Getting your wisdom teeth extracted isn't as daunting as it seems. Here's how it works - we access the surgical site through a small incision in the gum. If the tooth is impacted, we'll gently cut some bone covering the tooth. Using specialized tools, we rock the tooth back and forth until it's loose enough to be carefully removed. You're in skillful hands throughout the process.

Wisdom tooth healing

After wisdom teeth surgery, you might feel discomfort, yet it's manageable with the right care. Remember, the first few days post-procedure, swelling and tenderness are common. We encourage you to diligently follow the aftercare instructions. Ice packs could help reduce swelling while prescribed medication will handle the pain. Keep your mouth clean but avoid vigorous rinsing. The secret to a smooth recovery is patience and gentle care. Don't worry, we've got this.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Post-extraction meal ideas

After your wisdom teeth removal, it's best to stick with soft foods. Gelato, mashed potatoes, and well-cooked pasta are excellent choices. You can also enjoy a warm bowl of delicious baked apples. Be careful though, avoid hard, sticky, or crunchy foods, as they can irritate the surgical area. Moreover, refrain from hot beverages and alcoholic drinks - they can slow down the healing process. Stick to water, it's always a safe bet.
