what are wisdom teeth

What's the definition of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last teeth to develop in our mouths. We usually have four - one in each corner, at the back. However, they've been coined 'wisdom' teeth because they appear typically between the ages of 17 and 25, when one supposedly gains wisdom. If you've ever opened wide and peered into the mirror, you may have seen yours nestled right at the back. They're the veterans of the tooth world.

symptoms of impacted wisdom tooth

When is wisdom teeth removal necessary?

Symptoms of wisdom teeth coming in can include discomfort or pain in the back of your mouth, swelling, difficulty opening your jaw, and bad breath. Deciding when to remove wisdom teeth isn't always straightforward. We might advise removal if the tooth isn't emerging correctly, causing pain, cavities, or gum disease. Conversely, if it's not causing problems, we might leave it in place. To ensure the best treatment, consult expert oral surgeons for wisdom teeth in Camden. They've got the knowledge and skills to help.

Impacted wisdom teeth removal

We understand it can be worrisome to consider having wisdom teeth removed. However, we strive to make the process as quick and painless as possible. First, we administer local anesthesia so you won't feel pain. Once comfortably numb, an incision is made in the gum tissue. Then, if required, the tooth may be divided into sections to make it easier to remove. Removing a single wisdom tooth can take around 15 to 30 minutes. It's really not as daunting as you might think.

Aftercare recommendations

After you've had your wisdom teeth removed, recovery can look different for everyone. However, rest is crucial to heal even faster. We need to take it easy, avoid strenuous activities that could disrupt healing, and listen to our body. If your face swells or you're feeling a bit of discomfort, don't fret. This is normal, and over time it'll subside. Make sure you're keeping your mouth clean, but be gentle to avoid causing any issues with your stitches. Be patient, recovery takes time.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Soft foods to eat after wisdom teeth removal

We know it's tough, but steer clear of solid foods after wisdom teeth removal. Soft foods, like sorbet, aid in recovery and won't provoke a dry socket. Waiting about a week before eating solid foods may help avoid infection. Have a craving? Pineapple not only satisfies but also reduces swelling due to its Bromelain. Careful though. Too much can irritate. Stay hydrated, you're healing.

What do dentists charge for removing wisdom teeth in Camden?

Wisdom teeth removal varies in cost. It's influenced by factors like location, complexity of the procedure, and dentist's experience. Typically, in Camden, dental insurance can help offset a portion of this expense. We encourage you to check specifics with your insurance provider, as coverage differs widely. Moreover, always remember that your oral health plays a bigger role in your overall health than you might think.

Same-day wisdom tooth extraction in Camden

Wisdom tooth pain can indicate different issues; sometimes it's normal growth discomfort, but on other occasions, it warrants more prompt care. Understanding the difference is crucial; usual growth pain tends to ebb and flow, whereas problematic pain often escalates, persisting longer. If you're experiencing the latter, we highly advise consulting oral surgeons for wisdom teeth removal in Camden. Nevertheless, not every painful wisdom tooth signifies an emergency, but it should not be ignored either.
