what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Noticed some changes in the back of your mouth? Turns out, that may be your wisdom teeth making their entrance. Wisdom teeth, so-called for they typically come in later during our mature years, are usually the last to appear, around late teens to early 20s. They're the farthest back in your mouth, there to join the ranks of 28 other faithful teeth. However, dental care plays a part in how comfortably they'll settle. If you're lucky, they'll come in politely, causing minimal fuss. In other cases, we may need further dental care to encourage them into position. Whether you're 20 or 40, we're all subject to wisdom teeth's whims. Did you experience yours yet?

Is wisdom tooth extraction always necessary?

As wisdom teeth come in, you're likely to experience discomfort, swelling and sometimes even difficulty opening your jaw. These symptoms often signify that your wisdom teeth may require attention. While it's not always necessary to extract wisdom teeth, we believe in providing expert wisdom teeth surgery service in Gladstone. The decision entirely depends on your unique situation.

What's the process for taking out wisdom teeth?

In extracting your wisdom teeth, we first administer local anesthesia to numb the area. Then, through a small incision, we gently tease out the tooth. However, it's not always a smooth sail. Sometimes, the tooth can unexpectedly break during the procedure. Don't worry, though. In such tricky situations, we safely remove each broken piece. This ensures no remaining fragments cause you trouble later. Wisdom teeth removal is truly a balancing act we're passionate about.

Wisdom tooth healing

After removing your wisdom teeth, you'll notice some blood, which is normal right after surgery. We advocate for lots of rest to speed up recovery and keep the blood flow stable. Regularly rinse your mouth with warm salt water, but avoid strenuous rinsing; it's crucial to be gentle to prevent blood clots from dislodging. Ice the area on-again and off-again to reduce swelling and numb the pain. Additionally, it's integral to follow the prescribed medication schedule. We know you're eager to get back to your routine so adhering to these instructions should ease your recovery journey.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Foods to eat after having your wisdom teeth extracted

After the removal of wisdom teeth, we want to indulge in foods that are gentle on our incisions and can soothe inflammation. Ever thought about a plate of pasta with a tender, creamy Alfredo sauce? It's soft, easy to chew on and brings comfort to our healing gums. Alternatively, you could relish some flaky, cooked salmon which boasts high nutritional values essential for recovery. Nonetheless, hold that glass of icy soda or sizzling soup, as extremes in temperature can irritate your sensitive post-surgery oral cavity. Balance, in our meals and in temperature, is the secret to a happier - and speedier- recovery.
