What's the definition of wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are those teeth in the furthest corners of our mouth. They're typically the last to erupt - appearing between our late teens to early twenties. Intriguingly, not all of us will have them. Some people may have all four, others might have one or two, and there are cases when they don't show up at all. They're vestiges of our ancestors who needed bigger jaws and more teeth to grind down hard-to-chew foods.
When is wisdom teeth removal necessary?
Wisdom teeth symptoms can be discomfort, swollen gums around the affected area, difficulty opening your mouth, and a bad taste. These don't necessarily mean wisdom teeth need removing. We're the professional wisdom tooth extraction center in Albany; however, not every case needs us. An oral surgeon can assess if it's essential or not. You're in safe hands with us.
What's the process for taking out wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth removal involves delicately separating the tooth from its surrounding tissue. When it's impacted, we use surgical techniques like a simple extraction or a more complex procedure involving cutting into the gum tissue. A simple extraction requires us to loosen the tooth before we gently pull it out. However, for a seriously impacted tooth, we make an incision in your gum tissue, and if necessary, remove a bit of bone covering the tooth. Just picture trying to free a prized marble stuck in a tight pile of clay--that's what we're doing to safely extract an impacted wisdom tooth without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Wisdom tooth aftercare
After we extract your wisdom teeth, you'll likely experience swelling and discomfort, which is perfectly normal. We recommend that you rest more in the postoperative period, taking care not to exert yourself. You might notice some bleeding, but don’t be alarmed; just apply the gauze provided, changing it as needed. Intriguingly, you should avoid smoking as it can hinder the healing process. If pain persists, take the prescribed painkillers. Brush gently to keep your mouth clean while protecting the extraction site. Ice packs on your cheeks will soothe the swelling; moreover, they’ll offer a distraction, too.
Soft foods to eat after wisdom teeth removal
After getting your wisdom teeth removed, we recommend trying soft, vitamin-rich foods like tangerines, provided they are juiced or pureed, as their acidity and Vitamin C can promote healing. Also, a bowl of gentle silken miso soup could soothe while providing essential nutrients. Whether you fancy fruits, veggies or soups, remember, they must be easy to eat and not disrupt your recovery process. What's your favourite soft food recipe?
