what are wisdom teeth

What exactly are wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the final set of teeth to emerge, typically making their appearance between the ages of 17-25. They earned their moniker, 'wisdom teeth', as it's during these years we often gain maturity and wisdom. However, due to evolutionary changes, these teeth may not erupt fully, or at all. Often, they're not necessary for modern diets, leading to the question, why didn't evolution remove them completely?

Wisdom tooth healing

Following wisdom teeth surgery, recovery involves careful aftercare to prevent complications. Initially, we'll see swelling and discomfort, but fear not, it'll begin to fade within 2-3 days. However, full recovery typically takes between 7-10 days. Throughout this duration, you might experience minor bleeding, but don't worry. It's a normal part of the healing process. On the other hand, if you notice an increase in pain or swelling after a few days, it may signal an infection, requiring immediate attention. Moreover, remember, everyone's recovery journey differs slightly - like snowflakes, no two are exactly alike.

What to eat after tooth removal surgery?

Foods to eat after having your wisdom teeth extracted

After a wisdom teeth removal, we recommend consuming soft, easily digestible foods. You could consider a smoothly pureed pineapple for its bromelain, which aids in reducing swelling. Baked cod, when flaked, is also an excellent choice due to its high protein and omega-3 content. However, transition to normal eating is typically around the two week mark. Remember, it’s important to ensure food particles don't become trapped in the healing sockets. Hydration is equally as crucial, but avoid straws as they might disrupt clot formation.
