what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, often called "third molars," are the last teeth to appear in your mouth. We typically see them erupt between the ages of 17 and 25. However, not everyone gets these teeth, and for some, they might erupt much later. It's a natural part of dental development, but it can also sometimes cause discomfort or other issues. So, if you're feeling something unusual at the back of your gums, it might be your wisdom teeth making their debut.

symptoms of impacted wisdom tooth

Do I need to have my wisdom teeth removed?

When wisdom teeth come in, you might experience symptoms like swelling, pain, difficulty opening your mouth, and discomfort in your ears. Impacted wisdom teeth, however, need removing because they're embedded in your gums or jawbone, leading to serious complications. We provide a pain-free wisdom teeth extraction service in Pequannock, ensuring you're comfortable throughout.

Aftercare instructions

After wisdom teeth surgery, we'll likely notice some bleeding, which is completely normal. A piece of gauze can be placed over the surgical area to control this. It's vital to rest, avoiding strenuous activities for a few days post-surgery. Remember, you're recovering, not just from the extraction, but also the sedation. This process will involve some discomfort so take prescribed pain medication as directed. Moreover, keep the mouth clean with gentle rinsing, but remember, no aggressive spitting or drinking from straws.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Best foods to eat after wisdom tooth removal

Surely we enjoy a velvety fruit puree or a warming blended soup after a teeth extraction, don't we? Smoothies can indeed be a meal ticket, packing vital nutrition. Imagine the comfort of a banana, peach, and yogurt blend. However, avoid ingredients like seeds and hard bits. They're trouble. Remember to sip, not straw. Isn't that simple yet nourishing?

How much should I expect to pay?

The cost of wisdom teeth removal in Pequannock is influenced by several factors, as each person's case differs. Many times, it's more economical to remove all four wisdom teeth at once rather than one or two at separate times. However, we'd have to consider your unique situation for an accurate estimate. Always remember, to help manage costs, we offer flexible payment plans. This way, we ensure that you're getting the care you need, without breaking the bank.

FAQ

What is the purpose of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically emerge in the late teens or early twenties. They served a purpose in our ancestors to help chew tough foods, but due to changes in diet and jaw size, they often cause oral health issues today and may need to be removed.

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

In some cases, wisdom teeth removal may require multiple surgeries due to factors like impacted teeth, complex root structures, or the need for staged procedures. However, it is important to consult with a dental professional to determine the specific needs of each individual case.

What are dry sockets, and how can they be prevented?

Dry sockets are a painful condition that can occur after tooth extraction, usually due to the blood clot dislodging or dissolving from the socket. To prevent dry sockets, avoid smoking, spitting, or sucking through a straw, and follow aftercare instructions provided by the dentist.

Can I brush my teeth after wisdom teeth removal?

Yes, you can brush your teeth after wisdom teeth removal. However, be gentle and avoid the surgical area. Wait at least 24 hours before brushing that area to ensure proper healing.

Is heat or ice better for swelling wisdom teeth?

Ice is better for swelling wisdom teeth. Applying ice packs for 15 minutes on and off can help reduce swelling and ease discomfort. Heat can actually worsen swelling, so it's best to avoid using heat on swollen areas.
