Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars at the back of the mouth that typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. While some people have enough room in their mouths for these teeth to come in properly, many others experience problems that require them to be removed.
Why Remove Wisdom Teeth?
Wisdom teeth can cause a variety of problems, including:
Pain and discomfort
Crowding or shifting of other teeth
What to Expect During the Procedure
Wisdom teeth removal is typically an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia. Depending on the number of teeth being removed and the complexity of the procedure, sedation may also be used.
The dentist or oral surgeon will make an incision in the gum tissue and remove the tooth or teeth during the procedure. The incision will then be closed with stitches if necessary.
After the procedure, it is normal to experience some swelling, pain and bleeding. Your dentist or oral surgeon will provide detailed instructions on caring for your mouth in the days following the procedure.
It is essential to follow these instructions closely to ensure proper healing and prevent complications. Some tips for a smooth recovery include:
Avoiding solid foods for the first few days
Rinsing your mouth with salt water to promote healing
Applying ice to reduce swelling
Taking pain medication as directed by your dentist or oral surgeon
When to Call Your Dentist
It is essential to contact your dentist or oral surgeon if you experience any of the following:
Swelling that does not go down after a few days
