What exactly are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that usually appear at a mature age, between 17 and 25 years old. Thousands of years ago, our ancestors had bigger jaws and needed these teeth to grind tough food like raw meat and plants. But as humans evolved, our jaws got smaller. This caused problems because now there wasn't enough space for the wisdom teeth to properly grow, leading to pain and discomfort. Some people even need them removed today to avoid complications.
Is wisdom tooth extraction a necessity?
The symptoms of wisdom teeth coming in include pain or discomfort in the back of your mouth, swelling, redness, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, jaw stiffness, and difficulty opening your mouth. Sometimes, wisdom teeth don't have enough space to fully emerge, causing them to become impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to various problems like infections, crowding, damage to surrounding teeth, or even cysts. Removing impacted wisdom teeth is often necessary to prevent these complications and maintain oral health. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, it's best to schedule a consultation at our Round Rock dental clinic to get professional advice.
How does wisdom tooth removal work?
Wisdom teeth are typically removed by creating an incision in the gums and then extracting the tooth. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, where only the area around the tooth is numbed, or under general anesthesia, which makes you unconscious during the surgery. Local anesthesia is commonly used as it allows for a quicker recovery and reduces the risks associated with general anesthesia.
After wisdom teeth removal, it is normal to experience some bleeding. Bite down on a gauze pad placed over the extraction site to help control it. Change the gauze every 30-45 minutes until the bleeding stops. Avoid spitting or rinsing vigorously, as it may prolong bleeding. Apply an ice pack to reduce swelling and take prescribed pain medication as instructed. Follow a soft diet and maintain good oral hygiene, gently brushing and rinsing with saltwater.
What to eat after wisdom tooth removal?
After wisdom teeth surgery, it is best to consume soft and easy-to-chew foods to avoid irritating the surgical site. Some recommended options include custard and mashed potatoes, as they are smooth, gentle on the mouth, and require minimal effort to eat. These foods assist in providing the necessary nutrients while promoting a comfortable healing process. It's also essential to maintain hydration by drinking plenty of fluids, such as water and juice, while avoiding using straws to prevent dry socket.
How much does it cost to remove wisdom teeth in Round Rock?
Wisdom teeth removal in Round Rock can vary in cost depending on factors such as whether it is a simple extraction or an impacted extraction. Additional costs may apply for anesthesia or other dental care needs. Dental insurance coverage for wisdom teeth removal also varies depending on the specific insurance plan and its benefit. Our dental office can help you navigate insurance coverage and provide affordable options for wisdom teeth removal if you are without insurance.
