what are wisdom teeth

What's the definition of wisdom teeth?

In our mouths, we often find four third molars, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They typically emerge in early adulthood and are the last teeth to develop in our lifetime. However, not everyone gets wisdom teeth. On the one hand, they're a natural part of our oral anatomy, just like any other molars. Yet, they may not appear in some individuals due to genetic variations. It's fascinating how unique our dental profiles are, isn't it?

symptoms of impacted wisdom tooth

Do you really need to extract wisdom teeth?

As wisdom teeth come in, you may experience what we call "clinical symptoms" such as pain, swelling, or infections. Cysts can sometimes form near impacted wisdom teeth causing significant issues. At times, we have to carry out advanced surgical wisdom tooth removal, particularly in Hazel Park, due to impacted wisdom teeth. Why, you ask? Well, if we don't, they can damage the surrounding teeth or cause other severe complications.

How are wisdom teeth removed?

Buckle up, this is going to be an exciting journey to the back of your mouth where your wisdom teeth reside. First, we make a small incision in your gum to reveal the tooth and the bone. If the tooth is nestled inside the bone, we divide that tooth into sections, making it easier to take it out, bit by bit. It's sort of like solving a complex jigsaw puzzle, right? But don't worry, we've got this. The bone around the tooth might need some removing. However, don't you panic because this is a common part of the process. The more space we create, the easier it is to remove the tooth. Now, get ready for the grand finale - the actual removal. We gently, but surely, wiggle the tooth until it's free. And voila, mission accomplished. While this might sound daunting now, remember, we're with you every step of the way.

Aftercare recommendations

After wisdom teeth removal, a key concern is bleeding. That's where we focus first. Keeping a slight pressure using gauze helps control it. However, we'd strongly suggest resting more with your head elevated. Pain is normal, yet manageable. We recommend taking the prescribed painkillers. Moreover, ensure to clean your mouth gently but do not brush. On the other hand, you're to contact us should heavy bleeding persist or if there's swelling aggravation.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Food suggestions after wisdom tooth surgery

Sure, we can enjoy soft foods like banana cream pie and lamb stew, in smaller bites, after wisdom teeth removal. It's best to avoid caffeinated beverages like coffee and tea initially, as they can promote swelling and slow healing. However, once you're feeling better, you can gradually reintroduce them back into your diet. Remember, everyone's recovery pace will vary.
