what are wisdom teeth

What's the definition of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, officially known as third molars, emerge as the final set of teeth we grow during young adulthood. However, not everyone goes through this rite of passage. Indeed, some individuals are 'tooth-ally' fortunate, they're born without the necessary genes, meaning they'll never develop these third molars. You might ask, are you one of these lucky few? Only a dental X-ray can tell. It's a fascinating glimpse into human genetic diversity.

Should you have your wisdom teeth removed?

Experiencing an eruption? We understand it's not pleasant. Typical symptoms include pain, swelling, and difficulty opening your mouth. However, not every bit of wisdom tooth has to go. If they're not causing you discomfort, we'll keep them where they are. On the other hand, if you're experiencing discomfort or infection, we offer expert wisdom tooth removal service in Somerset. Trust us, we've got your smile covered.

What's the process for taking out wisdom teeth?

We start the wisdom teeth removal process with local anesthesia, ensuring you're comfortable and pain-free. It's a straightforward procedure where we make a small incision in the gum to expose the tooth, then drill to fragment it for easier removal. Stitches or sutures come next to secure the gum and promote healing, however, they're not always essential. Nevertheless, you'd agree that it's a small trade-off to conquer those troublesome wisdom teeth.

Wisdom tooth aftercare

Post wisdom teeth surgery, it's natural to see a bit of blood as your mouth begins to heal. We recommend frequently rinsing with warm salt water; it fosters a clean environment and encourages healing. It's also important to refrain from smoking, straws, and vigorous rinsing, as these actions can potentially dislodge the blood clot and prolong recovery. By adhering to these measures, you're significantly contributing to a smooth, pain-free recovery.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

What to eat post-op?

We advise sticking to soft, easy-to-chew foods following wisdom teeth removal. Foods like buttered noodles and halibut represent ideal choices as they're tender, nutritious, and less likely to irritate your healing mouth. Moreover, soups are welcomed, but avoid anything too hot and skip crunchy or spicy ingredients. Smoothies or milkshakes could also be an opportunity. However, don't stick a straw in them- you're not ready for any sucking action just yet.

What is the difference between local anesthesia and general anesthesia for wisdom teeth removal?

Local anesthesia numbs the specific area being treated, while general anesthesia makes the patient unconscious and unable to feel pain. Wisdom teeth removal can be done under either type, depending on factors like the patient's age, health, and complexity of the procedure.

Common signs of infection after wisdom teeth removal include severe pain, swelling, redness, fever, difficulty opening the mouth, unpleasant taste or odor, and discharge from the extraction site.

Can I have wisdom teeth removed if I have a medical condition like diabetes or heart disease?

It is generally safe to have wisdom teeth removed if you have diabetes or heart disease. However, it is important to inform your dentist about your medical condition so they can take necessary precautions.

Is heat or ice better for swelling wisdom teeth?

Applying ice is generally more effective than heat for reducing swelling of wisdom teeth. Ice helps to constrict blood vessels and decrease inflammation, providing relief from pain and swelling.
