what are wisdom teeth

What are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, interestingly, are our third set of molars that typically appear between the ages of 17 and 25. Like their neighbors, they help grind our food for easy digestion. However, because they're the last teeth to develop, sometimes they find a crowded stage. This could make proper dental care a tad more challenging. Yet, with good practices, you can keep all your teeth, wisdom or not, in tip-top shape.

Is it necessary to remove wisdom tooth?

As the leading provider of wisdom tooth extractions in Annandale, we're well-acquainted with symptoms you might experience. They can include pain, swelling, and possibly an infection. However, it's not always necessary to remove wisdom teeth. If they're healthy, not causing discomfort, and not impacting other teeth, they might stay. But remember, each case is unique. Always consult a professional.

How do you take out wisdom teeth?

We initiate the great wisdom teeth voyage by finding the not-so-hidden treasure through an incision in your gum. The dental cavalry then tackles the potentially stubborn tooth by breaking it into smaller pieces - don't sweat, you won't feel a thing. Then in an extraction that Michaelangelo himself would admire, we remove the pieces gingerly. The big finale? Stitches. They swoop in for a perfectly neat close-up. And voila. Your journey to wisdom teeth liberation is complete. No tooth in sight, just the evidence of a well-waged battle won..

After wisdom teeth surgery, we'd see you recovering over a few days. Although some discomfort and swelling are expected, don’t fret; they're just a part of the healing process. If you notice persistent bleeding, gentle biting down on a damp tea bag should help. You're to avoid strenuous activities, but continue with gentle mouth movements like speaking or light mouth rinses. Remember, your recovery journey is unique; so, don’t compare. That's it.
