What exactly are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Our ancestors needed these extra teeth because their diet mainly consisted of coarse, uncooked foods that required more chewing power. Over time, humans began cooking and eating softer foods, leading to smaller jaws. Consequently, wisdom teeth often become impacted or cause oral health issues due to lack of space.
Do I need to have my wisdom teeth removed?
When wisdom teeth begin to erupt, you may experience symptoms like pain, swelling, and discomfort in the back of your mouth. Sometimes, they can cause problems such as overcrowding, misalignment, or infection. Dentists at New Providence Dental Clinic can use x-rays to assess the condition of your wisdom teeth and determine if removal is necessary. They will consider factors like your oral health and future complications to provide you with community-oriented, personalized advice.
How do you take out wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are usually removed through a surgical procedure at the dentist's office. First, you will be given anesthesia to ensure a painless experience. The dentist will then create an incision in the gums to access the wisdom teeth. If necessary, the teeth may be divided into smaller pieces for easier removal. After extracting the teeth, the surgical area is often stitched closed, using dissolvable stitches. Overall, the surgery should be a straightforward and efficient process.
Wisdom tooth aftercare
After wisdom teeth removal, the fastest way to recover is by following proper aftercare practices. This includes resting and avoiding strenuous activities, applying ice packs to reduce swelling, taking prescribed pain medication, and rinsing gently with warm saltwater. Eating soft foods and avoiding smoking or using straws will aid in healing. Maintaining good oral hygiene, attending follow-up appointments, and following the dentist's instructions will support a speedy recovery.
Best foods to eat after wisdom tooth removal
After wisdom tooth extraction, you can consume soft and easily chewable foods that won't disturb the extraction sites. Examples include silken miso soup, which provides nourishment without requiring strenuous chewing. Greek yogurt is another suitable option as it is creamy and gentle on the mouth. Both these foods offer a soothing and gentle experience while providing sustenance during the 24-hour period following the extraction.

Emergency wisdom tooth extraction in New Providence
Wisdom tooth pain can be an emergency if it is severe and accompanied by swelling or difficulty breathing. However, not all pain is an indication of an impacted or infected tooth.
