what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, or third molars as they're often called, pop up in our mouths typically around the ages 17 to 21. They're a kind of memento of our evolutionary past when our ancestors needed these extra teeth to help grind down plant tissue. As we evolved, our diets changed and so did our jaws, making these teeth now largely redundant, kind of like our old high school varsity jackets hanging in the back of the closet.

Do I need to have my wisdom teeth removed?

Experiencing swelling, redness, or discomfort in the back of your mouth? It's probably wisdom teeth coming in. At times, you might feel pain or find cysts, and that's alarming. However, we can alleviate all concerns at our clinic with state-of-the-art wisdom teeth surgery in Saratoga Springs. On the other hand, you shouldn't remove asymptomatic wisdom teeth, as unnecessary surgery can lead to complications.

Impacted wisdom teeth removal

Removing wisdom teeth, our procedure starts with making a small incision in your gum to expose the tooth and bone. We gently loosen and extract the tooth, which helps leave your mouth feeling less crowded and more comfortable. It's an everyday occurrence and you're in safe hands. Anesthesia choices range from local (numbs just the tooth), to general (you're asleep), to sedation (you're relaxed but awake). It's all about making the procedure as smooth sailing, and pain-free, as possible.

Wisdom tooth aftercare

After wisdom teeth removal, it's natural to experience some discomfort; however, with proper care, we can minimize complications. Initially, you'll find a gauze pad in your mouth — it's essential not to disturb this for the first few hours following surgery. Moreover, abstain from strenuous activity for at least 24 hours and limit smiling, laughing and talking. Avoid touching the surgical area and remember to keep your mouth clean. Tranquil, restful recovery is key.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Best foods to eat after wisdom tooth removal

Alright, we've got it. After wisdom teeth removal, it's best to stick to soft foods and liquids for a while. Think chowder, its creamy consistency is perfect, and it provides protein and nutrients. You could also go for soft brown rice; it's gentle enough for healing gums and packed with fibers. Make sure to blend fruits for smoothies, so you're nailing those vitamins. Too simple, right? But remember, even small steps can lead to big nutritional wins. Drink plenty, too. Hydration helps with healing.
