what are wisdom teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last set of teeth we develop, typically emerging between the ages of 17 to 21. Historically, they've been called 'wisdom teeth' because they appear at a more mature age, when we supposedly gain wisdom. Wisdom teeth were once useful to our ancestors who had larger jawlines and diets that wore down their teeth more, but for most people today, these teeth serve little purpose.

Is it necessary to remove wisdom tooth?

Feeling pain at the back of your mouth? It's likely due to wisdom teeth breaking through. You'll notice inflamed gums, discomfort while chewing, and persistent oral pain. However, not all emerging wisdom teeth need removal. Only if the teeth are causing severe discomfort or dental complications should you consider getting them extracted. We at Waterford offer superior wisdom teeth removal service, ensuring you're pain-free and smiling bright post-op.

How are wisdom teeth removed?

We understand it's natural to feel a little nervous about wisdom teeth removal. However, with our expertise on hand, we'll ensure it's a smooth journey for you. First, you're put under local or general anesthesia, then we'll make a small cut in your gum to expose the tooth. Should there be bone blocking access to the tooth root, it will be removed. The tooth is then cut into sections to make it easier for removal. Don't worry, you won't feel a thing let alone discomfort. Moreover, to prepare for the procedure, make sure to arrange transport as the anesthesia could leave you feeling drowsy. It's also good to ensure you get plenty of rest the night before. We're here for you every step of the way.

FAQ

Why do we have wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth serve a purpose in our ancestors' diets. Over time, our jaws have become smaller, causing limited space for these extra molars. Their presence can lead to discomfort and dental issues, often requiring removal to ensure oral health.

Is it common for wisdom teeth removal to require multiple surgeries?

It is not uncommon for wisdom teeth removal to require multiple surgeries in certain cases. Factors such as impacted teeth, complex positioning, or limited access may increase the need for multiple procedures to ensure successful extraction.

Can I use a straw after wisdom teeth removal?

Yes, it is generally recommended to avoid using a straw after wisdom teeth removal to prevent dislodging blood clots and promote proper healing. Drink straight from a cup instead.

How long should I avoid alcoholic beverages after wisdom teeth removal?

It is recommended to avoid alcoholic beverages for at least 24-48 hours after wisdom teeth removal to allow for proper healing.

Can wisdom teeth removal cause numbness in the face?

Yes, wisdom teeth removal can sometimes cause temporary numbness in the face due to nerve trauma during the procedure.
