what are wisdom teeth

What's the definition of wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are usually the last teeth that appear in our mouths. Typically, they erupt between the ages of 17-25. However, not everybody gets these newcomers. For some, they're just unwelcome guests in the mouth, causing discomfort. Moreover, it's essential to keep an eye on them as they grow, to avoid any complications. We're right here with you on this journey.

While not always necessary, extraction can provide relief. As a leading provider of wisdom tooth extractions in Jamaica, we assure you that it's a routine procedure. However, every case is unique, so we'll examine you first before recommending the best course of action.

How do you take out wisdom teeth?

We start the wisdom teeth extraction procedure by making a small cut in the gum, giving us access to the tooth. If the tooth is impacted, we may also need to remove some bone to fully expose the tooth. After the tooth is accessible, we gently extract it in pieces if required for ease. Remember, you're in capable hands and shouldn't worry. We do this all the time.

Wisdom tooth aftercare

After you've had your wisdom teeth removed, we ensure your journey to recovery at home is as comfortable as possible. Pain is a normal part of this process; however, it's manageable with prescribed medication. You're likely to experience swelling, yet using an ice pack can help reduce this. Moreover, it's important to rest and avoid strenuous activity. Even if you're tempted, don't poke at the surgical areas with your tongue or fingers. On the other hand, gentle rinsing with salt water aids healing. Remember, proper care brings quicker recovery.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Food suggestions after wisdom tooth surgery

After having your wisdom teeth pulled, it's essential to eat soft, easy-to-chew foods. Cream of mushroom soup is perfect since it's comforting and requires minimal chewing. Also, steamed asparagus, cut into small pieces, works great. It's nutritious but soft enough not to irritate your gums. Just remember, you're healing, so eat gently and slowly. Avoid hot beverages for a few days, but stay hydrated. We understand, it's tough, but it's for the quick healing alright.

FAQ

Why do we have wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, were useful for our ancestors who had larger jaws and ate rougher, uncooked food. However, with evolving diets and smaller jaws, wisdom teeth have become vestigial and often cause dental issues, leading to their surgical removal.

Can I wear makeup on the day of my wisdom teeth removal surgery?

Yes, you can wear light makeup on the day of your wisdom teeth removal surgery. However, it's best to avoid heavy makeup as it may interfere with the procedure and cause complications.

What are the common signs of infection after wisdom teeth removal?

Common signs of infection after wisdom teeth removal include severe pain, swelling, redness, pus discharge, difficulty opening mouth, bad taste or odor, and fever. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.

How long does swelling last after wisdom teeth removal?

Swelling after wisdom teeth removal typically lasts for about 2-3 days. Applying ice packs to the affected area during the first 24 hours can help reduce swelling. If the swelling persists or worsens after this time frame, it is advisable to consult with your oral surgeon or dentist.

Can wisdom teeth make you sick?

Yes, impacted wisdom teeth can cause infections, pain, and swelling, leading to sickness. It is important to consult a dental professional for assessment and appropriate treatment.
