what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, known to us as the third set of molars, are intriguing. You may wonder, when do these typically show up? Usually, they emerge during our late teens to early twenties. This stage of life, when we begin to gain a little more insight, is why it's humorously called 'wisdom' teeth.

Is wisdom tooth extraction a necessity?

Wisdom teeth coming in often result in discomfort, swelling in the mouth, and persistent pain. You might also notice crowding, where the new teeth push others out of alignment. However, they don't always need removal. Sometimes, they grow in perfectly normally. On the other hand, when complications like impaction or infection occur, that's when you'd benefit from our expert wisdom tooth removal service in Providence, ensuring a safe and comfortable extraction.

How do they remove wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, those tricky things right at the back of your mouth, get removed in a certain way. First, we make sure you're comfy by giving you anesthesia. You've got options here - local, sedation or general, whichever works best for you. Then, we gently loosen the tooth before it's carefully taken out. To ensure all's well, we seal up the area with neat little stitches.

Wisdom tooth healing

After wisdom teeth surgery, it's common to feel some discomfort, yet every person experiences it differently. We'll issue pain management medication for the initial period following surgery. Besides, sleeping with your head elevated could help reduce swelling. You'll probably need a week to recover fully. However, we firmly recommend rest and refrain from strenuous activity throughout this period. Remember, while it might seem daunting, this is temporary and you'll soon be back to normal once your wounds are fully healed.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

What to eat after wisdom tooth removal?

After getting your wisdom teeth removed, try soft foods like porridge which is easy to eat and packed with nutrients. Pears, preferably cooked or in applesauce form, provide vitamin C for timely healing. Moreover, vitamin A and K, found in leafy greens and squash, aid in recovery. Calcium in dairy or almond milk strengthens bones. However, avoid hard or spicy foods and hot drinks that may cause discomfort. Always remember, proper nutrition speeds up healing.
