Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth


Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars that most people get in their late teens or early twenties. Sometimes these teeth can be a valuable asset to the mouth when healthy and properly aligned, but more often, they are misaligned and require removal.

How Are Wisdom Teeth Removed?

The ease at which your dentist can extract your wisdom teeth depends on their position. Your dentist will be able to give you an idea of what to expect during your pre-extraction exam. A wisdom tooth that is fully erupted through the gum can be extracted as easily as any other tooth. However, a wisdom tooth that is underneath the gums and embedded in the jawbone (impacted) will require an incision into the gums and then removal of the portion of bone that lies over the tooth. Oftentimes, for a tooth in this situation, the tooth will be extracted in small sections rather than removed in one piece to minimize the amount of bone that needs to be removed to get the tooth out.

Wisdom Teeth Recovery

Recovery is not that bad as many people may think. After the wisdom teeth are extracated, patient will have to take ample rest and should not engage into vigorous physical activities, in order to recover faster. Pain, bleeding and swelling are parts of wisdom teeth recovery. But you should consider them positively, as they help in the recovery process. Of great importance is to take all the medicines regularly and exactly as prescribed by the doctor. Cold pack for the first twenty-four hours, are good for faster recovery. Cold packs should be applied on 20-minutes on, 20-minutes off schedule. If you follow these simple routines, your recovery will take no longer than 4-5 days.
