What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last four teeth to grow at the back corners of the mouth. Not everyone has wisdom teeth; some people may have one, two, three, or none at all. These teeth usually erupt during the late teenage years or early twenties. They were believed to appear when a person becomes wiser, hence the name. Wisdom teeth can either emerge properly, causing no issues, or become impacted and cause pain or discomfort.
Is extraction necessary for wisdom teeth?
Symptoms of wisdom teeth coming in include pain, swelling, redness, and tenderness in the back of the mouth. The gums may also become inflamed and swollen. X-rays at Snohomish Dental Clinic can help determine if the teeth are impacted or crowding other teeth. Wisdom teeth should be removed if they are causing pain, infection, damage to nearby teeth, or cysts. If there are no symptoms and the teeth are healthy, removal may not be necessary.
How does wisdom tooth removal work?
Wisdom teeth are removed by a dentist using surgical techniques to take them out if they are impacted or causing problems. During the procedure, you will be given anesthesia, which numbs the area. The dentist then carefully makes a small cut in the gum and removes the tooth. Sometimes, they may need to divide the tooth into smaller pieces for an easier extraction. You won't feel any pain since you'll be asleep or your gums will be numb. This experience ensures a safe and comfortable surgery to remove your wisdom teeth.
Wisdom tooth healing
During wisdom teeth recovery, it is important to avoid vigorous rinsing or spitting in order to protect the clot that forms in the extraction site. Gentle rinsing with warm saltwater can be done after the first 24 hours. Applying ice packs to the face can help reduce swelling. It is crucial to stick to soft foods that are easy to chew and avoid using straws. Following proper oral hygiene practices and taking prescribed medications as directed is also recommended for a smooth recovery.
Post-extraction meal ideas
On the first day after your wisdom teeth removal, it is recommended to consume soft and cool foods that are gentle on your mouth. You can consider eating steamed broccoli, which is a nutritious option. Additionally, tuna salad can be a good choice as it provides protein and can be easily mashed. Remember to avoid hot or spicy foods and opt for cold or room temperature drinks like water or smoothies.
